GAME REPORT

30.03.2012
Rivas Punch Fairytale Final Ticket

Turning Point: Having made the three-pointer in final minute to bring her team to within a point, Birsel Vardarli went from potential hero to villain as she spilled the ball on what should have been the final possession to who else but the irrepressible Asjha Jones.

Game Heroes: Jones is already being touted as the tournament MVP and that isn't surprising after three monumental displays. She secured another double-double with 20 points and 11 rebounds to go with three steals - including the one that won the game.

Stats Don't Lie: Just nine points in the third quarter cost Fenerbahce who were always playing catch-up after this. They did shoot the ball better than Rivas during the game but were burned by 17 turnovers compared to 11 for their opponent.

 

Rivas Ecopolis wrote another wonderful chapter in their remarkable history when they inflicted a 74-70 loss on heartbroken and previously unbeaten Fenerbahce to reach the EuroLeague Women Final.

Despite being buoyant from their Istanbul derby win, Fenerbahce started slowly although it was at least a thrill for teenager Olcay Cakir who was handed a starting place for the biggest game of the season.

Rivas raced out into a 20-9 advantage with Elisa Aguilar burying a three-ball and they continued to control the game in the second period. At 40-31 after another score for Asjha Jones, it looked a little worrying for Fener.

However, the Fenerbahce fans were feeling a lot better about their prospects during the half-time break when their team headed to the locker room having cut the gap to 42-37 with Zane Tamane scoring on the fast-break right on the buzzer.

Their joy was short lived since it was Rivas who returned to the floor with real vigour and re-established their double-digit advantage once more at 53-40. Fener meanwhile began to struggle offensively and suffered a real drought with just one basket in six minutes.

Their woes continued into the final quarter and at 62-48 it looked to be all over but they gave themselves a glimmer of hope when they posted a 15-4 run sparked by Elina Babkina.

With the game back on a knife edge, Vardarli cut the deficit to 71-70 but next time down the floor, she failed to execute and Fener's chance evaporated meaning the team who nobody gave a chance, were able to book their Sunday date with Ros Casares.

COACH QUOTES

30.03.2012
Quotes Fenerbahce vs. Rivas Ecopolis
Fenerbahçe head coach George Dikeoulakos

"Congratulations to Rivas Ecopolis. They played tough and they played smart. That is the reality. If we look from our side, I do not like excuses but the truth is that Angel McCoughtry was sick and played in a very bad condition. Penny Taylor got injured yesterday in the Galatasaray Medical Park game. In addition to the bad luck, yesterday's match's excitement also affected Rivas' game. The game finished at 22:30 but we left at 00:00 and slept at about 04:00 - 04-30. So for as it was really hard to play. Anyway; I have to say that I am very proud of this team. The girls make me proud every day. Now we missed a great chance to do something really good. I thnik we lost because we were unlucky. It would have been totally different if Penny played and the conditions were not like this. We will focus on our next goal."

Fenerbahce small forward Angel McCoughtry
"I think this was one of the toughest games in the tournament. We are upset with this defeat. I congratulate Rivas Ecopolis."

Rivas Ecopolis head coach Miguel Martinez Mendez
"I congratulate Fenerbahçe and I am very happy to win against such a tough opponent which was unbeaten until this game. I'm also really glad to reach the final game of the tournament. Now we have a rest day and then we have to be prepared for Ros Casares."

Rivas shooting guard Anna Cruz
"We won an important match tonight against Fenerbahçe. I guess the victory came with playing 40 minutes tough in the game. Now we have final game that we hope to win."

COACH QUOTES

30.03.2012
Quotes Fenerbahce vs. Rivas Ecopolis
Fenerbahçe head coach George Dikeoulakos

"Congratulations to Rivas Ecopolis. They played tough and they played smart. That is the reality. If we look from our side, I do not like excuses but the truth is that Angel McCoughtry was sick and played in a very bad condition. Penny Taylor got injured yesterday in the Galatasaray Medical Park game. In addition to the bad luck, yesterday's match's excitement also affected Rivas' game. The game finished at 22:30 but we left at 00:00 and slept at about 04:00 - 04-30. So for as it was really hard to play. Anyway; I have to say that I am very proud of this team. The girls make me proud every day. Now we missed a great chance to do something really good. I thnik we lost because we were unlucky. It would have been totally different if Penny played and the conditions were not like this. We will focus on our next goal."

Fenerbahce small forward Angel McCoughtry
"I think this was one of the toughest games in the tournament. We are upset with this defeat. I congratulate Rivas Ecopolis."

Rivas Ecopolis head coach Miguel Martinez Mendez
"I congratulate Fenerbahçe and I am very happy to win against such a tough opponent which was unbeaten until this game. I'm also really glad to reach the final game of the tournament. Now we have a rest day and then we have to be prepared for Ros Casares."

Rivas shooting guard Anna Cruz
"We won an important match tonight against Fenerbahçe. I guess the victory came with playing 40 minutes tough in the game. Now we have final game that we hope to win."
