Tereza Peckova inspired BK IMOS Brno to a come-from-behind 67-64 home win over Lattes Montpellier in EuroLeague Women Group B on Wednesday.

The Czech Republic international scored seven of her 15 points in the final period, including the go-ahead three-pointer inside the last two minutes, as the hosts outscored previously unbeaten Montpellier 17-7 in the fourth.

Trailing 57-50 going into the quarter Brno went on an 8-0 run to tie at 58 before Peckova's long shot gave them a 65-64 edge late on.

Brno were led by Ivana Jalcova's 17 points and move to 2-2 while Montpellier slip to 2-1.

After some even opening exchanges the hosts surged into a 22-13 first-quarter lead behind fast-break baskets from Peckova and Jalcova in a 6-0 run.

The second period belonged to Montpellier however as Helena Ciak's jump shot started an 11-0 sequence, which would end with her team holding a 34-30 lead.

An 8-0 run to start the second half, thanks to more sharp shooting from Ciak, set Montpellier on the way to their biggest lead, 54-40, before Brno bit back in the final stanza.

BLMA's Geraldine Robert led all scorers with 19, one more than team-mate Ciak, but it wasn't enough.
