Mondeville Finish On A High

19.01.2011

Mondeville cruised to an easy 84-63 victory over TTT Riga in their final EuroLeague Women Group A game, but the chance of qualification for the last 16 had already been taken from them.

Pecs' win over Cras Basket Taranto made this a dead rubber, but Mondeville still went out on a high.

The hosts busted the game open early on, with Yacine Sene's jump-shot sparking a 16-2  run that made it 31-14.

Riga would rally early in the second half to put a scare into their hosts.

Kimberly Butler scored five straight points to make it 49-42, and after Aurelie Bonnan had made a pair of free throws for Mondeville, further baskets from Kristine Karklina and Shavonte Zellous brought the score back to 51-48.

But Mondeville were devastating from there on out, ending the third quarter on a 10-0 run and then using a 16-2 burst early in the fourth to kill the visitors off.

Kristen Sharp scored 15 to lead five Mondeville players in double figures as Lenae Williams and Aija Brumermane had 13 each, Valeriya Berezhynska 12 and Anne-Sophie Pagnier 10.

Zellous led Riga with 16 points while Butler had 15 and eight rebounds.
