Pecs 2010 stopped the rot and beat TTT Riga for the second time this season in EuroLeague Women Group A.

Leading just 39-38 at the end of the third quarter, Zjelko Djokic's team poured in the first six points of the fourth to take control and eventually claimed a 59-49 triumph.

In that important scoring burst at the start of the fourth, Kelsey Griffin, who had 17 points and eight rebounds for Pecs, drilled a jumper and then made one of two free-throws before Dalma Ivanyi buried a three-ball for a 45-38 lead.

Riga, who upset Mondeville last week for their first victory, reeled off six unanswered points to close the gap to 49-45 with 2:32 left.

They weren't able to pull any closer.

The Latvians got 12 points and 15 rebounds from Quanitra Hollingsworth.

Pecs, beaten by Hungarian rivals and fellow EuroLeague Women side MKB Euroleasing Sopron at the weekend, snapped a four-game losing streak in Europe to improve to 2-4 while Riga fell to 1-5.
