Pecs picked up their second victory in the EuroLeague Women this season, over Polish Champions Gdynia. 3,500 spectators watched the Hungarians play a clever tactical game as they manage to neutralise 213 cm Polish center Margot Dydek and hold Gdynia to just 56 points.
Pecs raced out of the block to score the first 7 points of the game, but Gydnia took an early timeout and reeled of 7 of their own to tie the score.
