Perfumerias Avenida's EuroLeague Women All Star Nicole Powell is confident good times will remain at the Salamanca club.
Powell, an American who was the EuroLeagueWomen's sixth leading scorer at 17.3 points per game this season, shot an incredible 50% from three-point range (37-of-74) as the team reached the eighth-finals before losing two close games against TEO Vilnius.
Halcon Avenida fought like lions and led for much of the game but came
unstuck in the fourth quarter and lost to Teo Vilnius, 74-68, in the EuroLeague Women on Friday.
The victory has given the Lithuanian team a 2-0 sweep of their eight finals play-off tie and propelled them into the quarter-finals.
A strong first-half display allowed TEO Vilnius to ease to victory over Halcon Avenida on Tuesday, giving them an early advantage in the best-of-three Eighth-Final play-offs.
Ebony Hoffman was the star performer for the Lithuanian hosts as the 24-year-old American center drained 18 points and grabbed eight boards in a largely one-sided first leg.
Halcon Avenida ended their Group B campaign in style with a 70-65 win at the expense of MiZo Pecs whom they will join in the next phase.
The Spanish side trailed 51-49 at the end of the third quarter but then Clara Bermejo Moreno got the first bucket of the final period to level things up.
