It was reunion time in Valenciennes against Polish side Krakow as the EuroLeague Women champions welcomed back captain Audrey Sauret. Sauret has been unavailable for the entire 2004/2005 season after injuring her knee in the 2004 French league finals.
Krakow produced a respectable first half against the French giants, including a perfect 4/4 from three-point land in the second quarter which saw them trail by just 4 points at halftime, 44-40.
But there was to be no stopping USVO from winning their third consecutive EuroLeague Women contest.
Sandra Le Dréan led USVO with 17 points on 8/10 shooting, while Lucienne Berthieu added 15 points and 8 rebounds.
