32 points and 13 rebounds for La Spezia: Nevriye Yilmaz
Porto Mirabello La Spezia had a convincing win against Caja Rural Canarias in the opening match of group B in the Fiba Europe Cup Women.

Both teams played a very good match, which was close until the last minutes.

In the end La Spezia won because of their bigger fighting spirit and because they had the best player of the game in Nevryie Yilmaz (32 points and 13 rebounds).

The Turkish player was the true protagonist, not only because of her points, but also for her “presence” on the court.

Game MVP: Nevryie Yilmaz
