Ibiza Hold On For Late Win Against Polkowice

10.12.2009

Ibiza Sport Island made sure Group D in the EuroCup Women will not be decided until the final week of Qualifying Round games after knocking off previously unbeaten CCC Polkowice 59-53 in Spain on Thursday.

The result has left the Polish club on top with a 4-1 record but Saarlouis Royals and Ibiza are now 3-2.

Saarlouis host Polkowice next week while Ibiza take on winless Nyon Basket.

With the best eight third-place teams advancing to the next round, there is a very good chance that all three teams will progress.

Ibiza led 50-41 with 6:51 to go but the Poles went on an 8-0 run capped by Anna Pietrzak's three-ball.

Polkowice kept the game close until the final minute when Ibiza scored the last five points for a six-point triumph.

Shannon Johnson had 20 points in the victory.

In Group F, Candice Wiggins and Latoya Davis poured in 18 points apiece as Sony Athinaikos hammered Besiktas 81-60.

Irena Vizbariene contributed 17 points for the Greeks, who improved to 4-1 and took over first place in Group F.

Besiktas are 3-2 and in second place.

In Group H, first-place K.V. Imperial AEL defeated Samsun Basketball, 53-40.

Tanasha Wright finished with 18 points and eight rebounds for the Cypriot club, which improved to 4-1.

Tamara Radocaj poured in 20 points as KK Hemofarm Stada prevailed 74-67 over Spartak Noginski in Group J.

Alicia Gladden had 25 points and seven rebounds as Energa Torun won 87-62 in Group E over Jolly JBS Sibenik.
