Defence Leads UMMC To Big Win

25 November 2009

Agnieszka Bibrzycka had 24 points to lead UMMC Ekaterinburg to a 74-53 road win over the offensively-challenged TTT Riga in EuroLeague Women Group A action.

While Bibrzycka lit up the scoreboard by making five of eight (62.5%) from three-point range, Riga got desperately little done, making only 18 of 66 (27.2%) shots from the field all game.

Lisa Willis was the lone Riga player to make double figures with 12 points. Even those came at a struggle as she made just four of 22 (18%) shots from the field.

The suffocating defence from UMMC also showed up in the rebounding column, as 37 of their 42 came on the defensive end.

Olga Arteshina added 16 points and Ann Wauters had 14 in a convincing victory for the group leaders, who now boast a 4-1 record.

Riga drop to 1-4, only just better off than winless TEO Vilnius.
