Awesome Ekaterinburg Dominate Wisla

14 November 2007

UMMC Ekaterinburg showed why they are being considered amongst the favourites for this season's EuroLeague Women crown with an 80-53 demolition of Wisla Can-Pack Krakow in Group B.

The Russians tore through USK Prague 85-43 in their opening fixture last week and were equally dominant this time around on the back of Polish star Agnieszka Bibrzycka's 16 points and five rebounds.

Australian Suzy Batkovic contributed 12 points and and five rebounds.

Ekaterinburg dominated from the off, but it was a 26-10 second quarter which put them out of reach.

Two free throws from rising star Sandrine Gruda started the run, which Deanna Nolan continued with a jump shot.

The American ended the half in similar fashion to give the Russians a 46-25 lead at half-time.

The Polish side rallied to edge the third quarter 18-13, thanks in part to four free throws from Marta Fernandez.

But they could add just 10 points in the final quarter as Ekaterinburg's array of stars took control.
