Rampant Ros Warm Up For Final

EUROLEAGUE WOMEN

Turning Point: There wasn't one since Ros raced off the starting line, went into overdrive and didn't take their foot off the accelerator.

Game Heroes: Isabelle Yacoubou and Eshaya Murphy both impressed, combining for 38 points and both shooting over 50% for the game.

Stats Don't Lie: Ros made just 1 of 12 from the arc which would ordinarily be a potential problem, however making a superb 58 points inside with a near 60% percentage meant it really didn't matter.

Red-hot Ros Casares made potential Final opponents Rivas Ecopolis and Fenerbahce sit up and take notice after prepared for Sunday's game with a 90-61 rout of Wisla Can-Pack.

Rather than taking their foot off the gas and relaxing, the Ros players were visibly tuned into this game, perhaps eager to impress and nail down court time for the big game.

It was the intensity and tenacity of their defence which impressed more than anything else. Time and time again, it proved to be the catalyst for points in transition as they blew Wisla away with a quite devastating first half performance.

The Spanish club racked up a mind blowing 51 points during a first half when they were absolutely rampant and it left their Polish opponents trailing in their wake and stranded on 24 points.

The second half saw Ros give valuable court time to young Miriam Foraste and it was mission accomplished as they both cruised to victory and importantly, seemed to avoid any injury problems.
