It was close at half-time, with Marta Fernandez's jump shot giving Wisla a 42-37 lead and giving her nine points in the game.

Dalma Ivanyi drilled a three-pointer early in the second half to cut the Wisla lead to 44-40, but the wheels then fell off for the visitors from Hungary.

For Wisla, Ewelina Kobryn buried a jumper and Iziane followed with two straight baskets - the second a three-ball - before Janell Burse scored to cap the 9-0 spurt and take her points haul to 13.

Her jump shot made it 53-40 in favor of Wisla and the home side then played as if the floodgates had been opened, scoring at will.

When it was over, Wisla had restricted MiZo to a mere 16 points in the second half.

Burse, voted to the Rest of the World Team for the All-Star Game, finished with 17 points and nine rebounds while Liron Cohen added 16 points, Iziane 13 and Fernandez, a member of the European Team starting line-up at the All-Star Game, had 11.

Wisla out-rebounded their opponents 41-23 and they also hit nine of 23 shots from long range.

MiZo struggled, making four of 16 from behind the arc.

Nicole Ohlde led MiZo with 14 points and 10 boards.
