Group E winners Basket Landes wrapped up their first round EuroCup Women campaign unscathed by taking an 82-72 win at Lotto Young Cats.

The French visitors had initially trailed 27-19 after the first quarter, but eventually shifted up through the gears to take control and finish with a sixth win in as many games.

Danielle Page continued her hot streak with 26 points while Sara Leemans was unfortunate to be on the losing team with 18 points from six of seven floor shooting.

There was plenty of heartache in Komlo as Hungarian hometown favourites Pinkk Pecsi 424 watched their chances of a place in the last sixteen of the competition ebb agonisingly away.

MBK Ruzomberok grabbed the double-digit win they needed to advance in Group G, by taking a fabulous 62-50 road victory.

A 9-0 run in the fourth period proved to be the game-winning burst they required in crunch time, with Stefanie Murphy very much the hero with a smart 15 points and eight rebounds.

There was also a gut-wrenching sensation on the final buzzer for Wallonia Basket, who shot down group winners Tarbes Gespe Bigorre 77-71, but lost out for second place on the head-to-head with MBK Ruzomberok.

11. Anastasia Logunova (Chevakata Vologda)
Anastasia Logunova and Chevakata are now dependant on the last remaining game in their groupafter their win over Ruse

Celeste Trahan was again a real tower of strength with 24 points and 12 rebounds, but it was to be in vain as the valiant debutantes just missed out. Joyce Cousseins poured in 24 points for Tarbes.

Chevakata Vologda are still in with a chance of reaching the next phase of the competition after taking a precious Group B win at Dunav 8806 Ruse.

The Russian club had to come from behind but dominated in the second-half to secure a 65-54 success. Teenage rising star Albina Razheva claiming 14 points from an impressive seven of ten floor shooting and Snezana Aleksic handing out seven assists.

Jaklin Zlatanova claimed 20 points for the home side but couldn't propel them to a first victory as they finished 0-6.

Chevakata need Mersin to beat the Norrköping Dolphins or the Dolphins take a win by five or more points in order to advance in what will be a three-team-tie in the latter scenario.

There was finally some joy for Belfius Namur in Group F as they took their last opportunity to grab a victory with both hands.

A sensational contribution from Julie Wojta helped them squeeze past group leaders Nantes Reze 73-69, to end their participation on a high note.

The swingman claimed a phenomenal 32 points and 11 rebounds, whilst Djenebou Sissoko was also terrific, with 21 points and ten rebounds.
