Pierson Produces Again For Good Angels

33. Plenette Pierson (Good Angels Kosice)
Unstoppable early in the season: Plenette Pierson

Another high-class contribution from in-form forward Plenette Pierson carried Good Angels Kosice to a 75-64 success against visiting Uni Gyor in EuroLeague Women Group A.

The 32-year-old scooped the week one MVP award and staked her claim to retain the accolade by accumulating 22 points and 10 rebounds as Kosice moved to two wins from as many games.

Overwhelmed by UMMC Ekaterinburg in their opening game of the season, Uni Gyor proved to be a pesky proposition in their second outing and showed some terrific resilience.

They held their own for the first 15 minutes or so, a three-pointer by Anna Lakloth and a score by Joslyn Tinkle helping to keep them on an even keel with their hosts at 26-26.

But, any hope Gyor had of keeping pace with their hosts throughout the contest evaporated when Good Angels Kosice hit the turbo button either side of the half-time break with a powerful 21-8 bust.

It broke the game open and with Uni Gyor struggling to contain the frontline of Pierson, fellow frontcourt veteran Yelena Leuchanka and the impressive 14-point Tijana Krivacevic, a comeback always looked unlikely.

An 8-2 start to the last quarter offered a glimmer of a chance, but Kosice re-asserted their authority to take the win.

Tinkle had 18 points and eight rebounds for the losing team.
