It's now four wins in a row for Fenerbahce in Group B as the Turkish heavyweights produced a power-packed performance to ease their way to a 73-55 victory at Lattes Montpellier.

The home side knew they would have to try and grind out a result against the unbeaten opponents, but that game plan was more or less torn up after just ten minutes.

Fenerbahce accrued 27 points in the first quarter alone and by the time Birsel Vardarli hit a big triple moments later, they had established a commanding double-digit lead at 34-24.

BLMA were always playing catch-up and despite a bright double-double of 13 points and 10 rebounds from Latvian veteran Gunta Basko-Melnbarde, they were unable to get even close to bridging the gap.

Holding Fenerbahce to just nine points during the third quarter looked like it might help their cause, but BLMA subsequently stumbled upon a drought of their own in the last period, as Fenerbahce gleefully cruised over the finishing line.

Angel McCoughtry cemented her status as one of the form players of the early stage of the season after a racking up a super 24 points for Fenerbahce, whilst inside player Ivana Matovic showed her rounded game by adding an eye-catching six assists.
