Sopron Surprise Rivas In Spain

14 January 2010

MKB Euroleasing Sopron upset Rivas Ecópolis 71-67 in Spain on Thursday to strengthen their hopes of reaching the EuroLeague Women Last 16.

Amber Holt scored 18 points and had the go-ahead three-ball with 1:46 remaining for the visitors from Hungary.

That shot made it 68-67 in favor of Sopron.

Petra Ujhelyi then turned the ball over on two of Rivas' next three possessions, and MKB Euroleasing sank three free-throws to seal the victory.

Sopron improved to 4-5 and set up an interesting last week in Group C because Bourges and ZVVZ USK Prague are also 4-5.

Rivas (7-2) have already clinched first place in Group C.

They blew their chances on Thursday when making just 13 of 24 shots at the free-throw line.

Crystal Langhorne finished with 19 points and nine rebounds for Rivas.
