Bourges will head into the EuroLeague Women play-offs with real momentum after posting a powerful display from tip to buzzer in Group A to complete an 85-60 blowout of BK Imos Brno.

Their fourth win in the last five games, the French club were rampant from the outset after a swashbuckling 26-12 first quarter left the visitors trailing in their wake.

Whilst Brno tried desperately to recover the situation, they could make little impression during the second quarter and consequently were 45-31 behind as they sought some respite at the break.

Things didn't improve when they emerged for the second half as Bourges piled on the agony, teenage center Christelle Diallo making it 64-44.

An excellent night of work from the home side was then rounded off in the best possible way as Celine Dumerc finished the scoring from downtown.

Bourges' superiority was underlined by five players reaching double digits, with Styliani Kaltsidou scoring a game-high 17 points.

Emmeline Ndongue added 14 points and eight rebounds, whilst Dumerc harvested 12 points and seven assists.

Nicole Ohlde top scored for Brno with 16 points.
