|Debutante Nnemkadi Ogwumike has looked impressive in her first two EuroLeague Women games|
CCC Polkowice surprised Perfumerias Avenida in Spain on Tuesday night to claim their first win of the EuroLeague Women campaign.
Nnemkadi Ogwumike poured in 22 points for the Polish side as they recorded a 68-59 victory in Group C.
Beaten at home by Mondeville last week, Polkowice broke open a close game late in the fourth quarter at Perfumerias.
On top 57-55 with just 2:33 remaining, Ogwumike drilled a jump shot and then sank two free-throws to push the lead to six.
Spain's Laia Palau, a member of the Ros Casares title-winning side of last season, then made three of four free-throw attempts to extend the advantage to 64-55 with just 40 seconds to go.
There was no way back for Perfumerias, who were led by Nicole Powell's 14 points and eight rebounds.
Palau and Valeriya Musina each weighed in with 11 points for the visitors.
Perfumerias' next game is at Mondeville in France while Polkowice are at home to Galatasaray.
Polkowice head coach Janek Winnicki:
"I am very proud of my team. We knew that we came to a very difficult court, with the fans, and I think we did a fantastic job. We didn't let them play with their rhythm, and limiting Avenida to 59 points is very good."
Polkowice player Laia Palau:
"We had to make our job away from our court. What we didn't do last week, we had to do in this game. We know this is a very difficult group. I think Ekaterinburg, Galatasaray and even Salamanca are on a higher level, so this win is very important for us."
Avenida head coach Alberto Miranda:
"They knew us very well. Probably they had more time than us to prepare this match and their scouting job was excellent. We had a lot of problems with the passing. We didn't get assists and if you have this problem, it's almost impossible to win."
Avenida player Lucila Pascua:
"They did a great job on scouting, it was impossible to play our game. We felt uncomfortable at every time. They played with four players outside and (Nnemkadi) Ogwumike inside, and defending her was a problem."
