KSSSE AZS-PWSZ Gorzow grinded out a 49-39 win over Bourges in what is certain to be one of the lowest scoring games of the season in the EuroLeague Women.

Their outstanding American, Sidney Spencer, had 12 points and four rebounds while Samantha Richards also excelled with 12 points and three assists.

Poland international Justyna Zurowska led the Gorzow defense by coming up with a game-high three steals.

The home side led from start to finish, with Spencer pouring in their first eight points to set the tone.

She buried a three-ball to start proceedings and after Essence Carson replied with a jump shot for Bourges, Spencer hit the visitors with another three-pointer.

Spencer capped her 8-0 spurt with a jump shot inside arc for an 8-2 advantage and Gorzow had the lead for good.

The advantage ballooned to 16-5 late in the first quarter and grew to 34-16 late in the second after a basket by Izabela Piekarska.

The home side went ice cold in the third quarter and scored just five points  but Bourges still trailed 39-30 heading into the last 10 minutes.

Pierre Vincent's side got no closer.
