Brno Hands OT Heartache To Wisla
|Farhiya Abdi did all the damage for the homeside against the visitors from Wisla Can-Pack|
picked up their first success of the season in dramatic circumstances after a thrilling 77-74 overtime victory against a crestfallen Wisla Can-Pack
who remains without a win to their name in Group A.
After successive losses to open up the campaign, Wisla-Can Pack head-coach Jose Hernandez was desperate to get prize asset Tina Charles
onto the court, and she underlined why this was the case with a stellar first contribution in a Wisla vest.
She accumulated a monumental 32 points and 14 rebounds in a bid to catapult her team to a first win, but it was to be in vain.
The Polish team will be kicking themselves for not getting the job done during regulation when during the dying seconds, Charles, Dora Horti
and Anke De Mondt
all had opportunities to find the decisive basket but failed, and to their credit, Brno fully capitalised on the situation.
They were absolutely terrific with Veronika Vlkova
arguably an unlikely hero during overtime as she delivered the dagger from downtown which effectively won the game.
But, in the main, it was 18 points and 13 rebounds by Nicole Ohlde
and also 24 points from young Swede Farihiya Abdi
which made the difference
