|DeLisha Milton-Jones finished her EuroLeague Women campaign with Tarsus on a high, knocking down 19 points|
It's been an eventful first campaign in EuroLeague Women for Tarsus Belediye and they wrapped up their involvement in the competition with a thrilling 72-70 Group A win over Wisla Can-Pack.
Having lost head coach Erdal Yegin in the lead up to the game, the team seemed to be unaffected as they claimed their fourth win of the season and indeed their third in a row, as Danielle Robinson nailed a last-gasp basket.
The result may have left Wisla wondering what impact it could have on their subsequent play-off seeding and will also reflect on having allowed a double-digit advantage to slip.
It was 22-22 during the second quarter when the visitors made their move, finishing the half with a 20-8 run, and it could have been worse for Tarsus heading to the locker rooms, had Shay Doron not converted on the buzzer.
It gave Tarsus some much needed momentum for when they returned to the court and after seven minutes, they had erased the 12-point deficit with a free-throw from Robinson leveling matters at 48.
As both teams wrestled for the initiative for the remainder of the game, it boiled down to composure and execution in the clutch.
Alana Beard tied the scores at 70, only for Robinson to make the game-winning shot with the last possession.
Delisha Milton-Jones top-scored with 19 points for Tarsus whilst Justyna Zurowska can feel aggrieved to have been on the losing team after a flawless shooting night handed her 16 points.
Wisla head coach Jose Hernandez
"It was a hard game. Tarsus played very hard defense. The second half they played with a lot of contacts and we had problems on offense. Turnovers also were the key of the game in the second half. And we were not lucky at the end of the game."
Wisla forward Justyna Zurowska
"It was a though game.We were leading in the first half. But in the second half they made everything to win and we just did not do anything."
Tarsus Head Coach Olcay Orak
"It was my first game with my new team. I just signed a contract with Tarsus and I started with a win. I am so pleased with the team's hustle and good play especially in the second half. Starting with a win is so good and I hope the same till the end of the season. I just thank my players for tonight and for the club to give me this chance."
Tarsus guard Danielle Robinson
"It was a good game and we just keep up our winning streak again. In the first game we lost on my last missed lay up and tonight we won with my lay up in the last second. I am so happy and this game and the EuroLeague Women season is over for us and we look a head for the Turkish League from now on."
