Bourges Basket advanced to the quarter-finals of the EuroLeague Women with a 68-53 triumph over Wisla Can-Pack of Poland.
The French giants, who got 15 points and eight rebounds from Cathy Melain, and 10 points and nine boards from Elaine Godin, stay on course for another chance at glory in the competition they have won three times in their history.
Bourges were either hot or cold on Tuesday. There was no in-between.
The French club, who boast one of the richest traditions in women's basketball in Europe, won 77-69 over Wisla Can-Pack after an up-and-down night.
Dynamo Moscow left it to the last quarter to stage a comeback that would see them beat WislaCan-Pack 72-65 in a EuroLeague Women and take their record in Group C to 7/3.
The Russians started the match well but then lost control and it was only a tremendous fourth-quarter rally that earned them the spoils.
Katie Douglas produced the goods again as Lietuvos Telekomas beat Wisla Can-Pack 80-67 in an exciting EuroLeague Women match on Thursday.
Douglas was outscored by Anna De Forge, who poured in 32 points for the beaten Poles, but she still produced a performance that meant the difference between victory and defeat with 20 points and eight rebounds as well as four assists.
