Ewelina Kobryn produced a perfect shooting night as the defending champions marched relentlessly onwards in EuroLeague Women Group A by completing an 82-45 demolition of visiting Kayseri Kaski spor.

Kobryn grabbed her highest score in a UMMC vest with 21 points and never missed a shot as the Russian powerhouse collected their fourth win of the campaign and their seventh consecutive success against Turkish opposition.

Diana Taurasi also illuminated the contest with a dazzling 13 assists as the home club grew stronger as the game unfolded.

Kayseri managed to just about keep the shackles on their illustrious opponents during the first 12 minutes, with Italian national team forward Sabrina Cinili scoring to keep her side within touching distance at 18-13.

But, it was all downhill after this as UMMC opened up a double-digit lead and then piled on the agony in a distinctly one-sided second-half.

The home defence choked the life out of Kayseri's offence and the visitors were held to just nine points in both the third and fourth quarter, as UMMC romped to victory to remain unbeaten.

Cinili was the pick of the Kayseri players with an efficient 10 points as her team slumped to a third loss four games.

There was a notable landmark for UMMC fans to enjoy as the legendary Maria Stepanova got the basket she needed to become only the fourth player in the history of the competition to exceed 2,500 points.
