Riga had closed to the gap to just three points with 2:41 to go on Quanitra Hollingsworth's jump-shot, but they could get no closer as Pecs held on for the win.

Dalma Ivanyi's lay-up made it 62-57 with 76 seconds left, and Kristine Karklina could only split her free throws at the other end.

Sara Krnjic sank a pair to pad Pecs' lead but Riga were not done yet, with Karklina making it 64-60 with 32 seconds left.

However, Nora Nagy-Bujdoso held her nerve to make a pair of free throws with 15 seconds left and the game was up for Riga when Ieva Veinberga missed a late three-point attempt.

Alexandria Quigley led Pecs with 15 points while Kelsey Griffin had 11 and Nagy-Bujdoso 10.

Riga wasted a big night from Shavonte Zellous who had 24 points on 10-of-13 shooting from the field, while Hollingsworth had 16 points and 14 rebounds.
