GAME REPORT


Red-hot Fenerbahce Advance To F8

35. Angel McCoughtry (Fenerbahce)
Quanitra Hollingsworth enjoyed a great night out for the visitors
Red-hot Fenerbahce secured a fantastic fourteenth successive victory of the season with a 64-48 result at CCC Polkowice to stamp their passport back to the EuroLeague Women Final Eight.

Last year's runners-up are still yet to taste defeat during the current campaign and completed a comfortable 2-0 play-off series win.

Capitalising from the ongoing absence in the paint of injured Polkowice star Janel McCarville, the Fenerbahce frontcourt did the business in what was a one-sided game apart from the opening five minutes.

Center duo Isabelle Yacoubou and Quanitra Hollingsworth both enjoyed their night of work under the hoop as they combined for a 63% shooting night, on their way to accruing 17 and 13 points, respectively.

The writing was on the wall for the home side after they fell 20-11 behind in the opening ten minutes and whilst they kept pace with Fenerbahce leading up to half-time, the flood-gates opened in the second-half.

The Turkish visitors pressed their foot hard down on the accelerator and killed off any remote hopes of a comeback with a stunning 20-4 burst across the third and fourth quarter break.

Slovenian guard Teja Oblak finished her season with a career-high EuroLeague Women score of 14 points for Polkowice.

 

 

COACH QUOTES


Quotes CCC Polkowice vs. Fenerbahce

Roberto Iniguez, Fenerbahce coach:

"The key to success was that we played well from the beginning of the game. We were focused, we did not let the Polkowice players make up for lost balls. The defense was also fine, except the last minutes of the match, when we became too relaxed."

Jacek Winnicki, CCC Polkowice coach:

"Congratulations to Fenerbahce. The difference between our teams is huge. This season we accomplished our primary goal which was to make the play-offs. We tried to make it a fight and it seems that at times we succeeded."

Agnieszka Bibrzycka, Fenerbahce:

"It is a pity that we had to meet in the play- offs, because I was hoping that CCC could manage to repeat the success of the previous year. We have a wider rotation; each player, who went on the floor gave something back. I'm glad we're going home with the victory and will have plenty of time to prepare for the Final Eight. Good luck to the girls of Polkowice in the Polish Championship."

Teja Oblak, CCC Polkowice:

"Congratulations to Fenerbahce for making the Final Eight. This is a very strong team. We tried to play well in defense, but especially after the break it was very difficult playing [hard] both in defense and offense; they  played very good basketball."
