Taranto Power Past Riga


Cras Basket Taranto blew TTT Riga away late in the game to claim a 78-52 win in their EuroLeague Women clash.

Taranto had already let one slip, but put together a decisive run that started in the third quarter and stretched into the fourth that Riga had no chance to recover from.

Elodie Godin hit a pair of free throws to end a 39-39 tie and that sparked a 20-0 run, capped by Megan Mahoney three-point play, that broke Riga.

Mahoney led Taranto with 19 points, while Kathy Wambe added 14, Jami Montagnino had 13, Rebekkah Brunson 12 and Godin 10.

Aija Brumermane was the only Riga player to make it into double figures with 10.

The win sees Taranto improve to 5-3 to move third in Group A, while Riga drop to 1-7.
