Ros Casares were again able to limit the threat of Wisla Can-Pack ace Anna De Forge to book their place in the quarter-finals of the EuroLeague Women.
Although De Forge still managed to score a game-high 21 points in the opening meeting between the two sides on Tuesday, Ros Casares felt they had handled the former WNBA star well in their 80-72 win.
Another big effort from DeLisha Milton led Ros Casares to an 80-72 win over Wisla Can-Pack in the first game of their Eighth-Final play-off.
Milton scored 19 points and grabbed 11 rebounds as Ros Casares came from behind in the final quarter to claim victory. Milton is averaging 20.6 points per game and 11.3 rebounds this season in the EuroLeague Women.
Ros Casares ace Margot Dydek has warned her team-mates against underestimating the threat posed by EuroLeague Women eighth-final play-off opponents Wisla Can-Pack Krakow.
And it would be wise for the Ros Casares players to listen to Polish international Dydek, who has plenty of experience of playing against her countrywomen having spent eight years at their great rivals Lotos Gdynia.
Polish side Wisla Can-Pack Krakow have reached the EuroLeague eighth- finals again - an achievement thanks in no small part to star guard Anna De Forge.
The Poles, after Wednesday's 81-77 defeat to TEO Vilnius, advanced as the fourth-place team from Group A.
