Chevakata Concludes Rout Of Young Cats



Chevakata pulled away from Lotto Young Cats in the second half and won 81-53 to cruise into the Quarter-Finals of the EuroCup Women.

The young Ukraine international Olesia Malashenko had a team-high 13 points.

Russian basketball great Elena Baranova put Chevakata in front for good with a lay-up 6:20 into the contest for a 14-13 lead.

After going to the break on top, 41-34, Chevakata put the result beyond doubt by outscoring the Belgians 22-9 in the third quarter.

Emma Meesseman had 16 points in defeat.
