Red-hot Fenerbahce secured a fantastic fourteenth successive victory of the season with a 64-48 result at CCC Polkowice to stamp their passport back to the EuroLeague Women Final Eight.

Last year's runners-up are still yet to taste defeat during the current campaign and completed a comfortable 2-0 play-off series win.

Capitalising from the ongoing absence in the paint of injured Polkowice star Janel McCarville, the Fenerbahce frontcourt did the business in what was a one-sided game apart from the opening five minutes.

Center duo Isabelle Yacoubou and Quanitra Hollingsworth both enjoyed their night of work under the hoop as they combined for a 63% shooting night, on their way to accruing 17 and 13 points, respectively.

The writing was on the wall for the home side after they fell 20-11 behind in the opening ten minutes and whilst they kept pace with Fenerbahce leading up to half-time, the flood-gates opened in the second-half.

The Turkish visitors pressed their foot hard down on the accelerator and killed off any remote hopes of a comeback with a stunning 20-4 burst across the third and fourth quarter break.

Slovenian guard Teja Oblak finished her season with a career-high EuroLeague Women score of 14 points for Polkowice.
