Fenerbahce are just one win away from lifting the Turkish women's title after winning Game 2 of their domestic play-off finals against rivals Galatasaray, 98-93.

The game was knotted at the end of the third quarter but Fener, who were 25 of 27 at the free-throw line, did just enough to claim the victory.

Cappie Pondexter had 29 points and Angel McCoughtry 20 for Fener, while Diana Taurasi led Gala with 25 points and Sylvia Fowles poured in 24.

The veteran center of Fenerbahce, Ivana Matovic, also weighed in with 17 points.
