Good Angels Kosice duo Allie Quigley and Plenette Pierson produced super displays to inflict a first EuroLeague Women loss of the season on Famila Schio and boost their own team's prospects with an impressive 79-69 victory.

The Italian side touched down in Slovakia searching for a fifth consecutive win in Group B, but were left to taste defeat after Pierson poured in a game-high 27 points and Quigley lit it up from outside with a sparkling five of six from downtown.

The fact that few of their Good Angels team-mates shot the ball in even mediocre fashion was of little significance since they all did other important jobs in a powerful team performance, highlighted by Petra Kulichova pulling down 10 rebounds.

There had been little daylight between the teams for most of the opening half, but a last gasp three-pointer by Miljana Bojovic gave Good Angels Kosice a 43-38 lead and what later proved to be plenty of momentum for when they re-emerged.

The hosts stepped out with real purpose and a 14-6 run had Schio on the back foot and the visitors were unable to recover- especially when Kosice stretched their lead 72-53 early in the last period to give their opponent a mountain to climb.

Natasha Lacy had an all action debut for Kosice with eight points, four rebounds, four assists and three steals.

Jantel Lavender was the standout performer for Schio with a double-double of 15 points and 10 rebounds.
