Fenerbahce Leave It Late But Beat Wisla


Tammy Sutton-Brown came up with some big plays on both ends of the floor down the stretch and Fenerbahce outscored Wisla Can-Pack Krakow 29-14 over the final 11:23 en route to a 67-59 win.

The victory sealed a 2-0 sweep in the EuroLeague Women Eight-Finals Play-offs series.

Cappie Pondexter finished with 22 points and Nevriye Yilmaz, the Turkey international center, scored 14 and grabbed 10 rebounds for Fener, who will now be looking to go one step further than last year when a narrow defeat to Ros Casares prevented them from reaching the final four in Vidnoje.

Anna De Forge's 17 points were not enough for Wisla
With just over two minutes left in the third quarter, Wisla led 45-40 but they went cold over the next seven minutes and failed to score.

Meanwhile, Fener tied the game at 45-45 on a three-pointer from Gergana Branzova-Erdeney.

Wisla were able to keep their noses in front and had their last lead at 57-56 with 1:38 left following a jump shot from Anna De Forge.

Sutton-Brown then stole the show.

She replied with a jumper to put Fener on top, and then blocked an attempt from behind the arc by De Forge, which led to a three-pointer from Esmeral Tuncluer for a 61-57 lead.

They ended up closing the game on an 11-2 run for an eight-point win.

Sutton-Brown finished with 11 points and nine rebounds for Fenerbahce.
