|Jelena Dubljevic had her best game of the season with 20 points and 14 rebounds |
Jelena Dubljevic's double-double powered ZVVZ USK Prague to a 67-63 home success against Galatasaray odeabank in EuroLeague Women Group C on Wednesday.
Prague erased memories of last year's season sweep at the hands of the Turkish giants behind an incredible individual effort from Dubljevic.
The forward started sharp and never let up going for 20 points and 14 rebounds to help keep Prague perfect at 3-0 while giving Gala their first defeat.
Shavonte Zellous scored 21 for the visitors and Kelsey Bone added 16 but Prague's hot shooting was the difference.
In fact, a triple, which gave Dubljevic three of her nine first-quarter points, also saw the hosts finish the opening period 17-16 in front.
Zellous had 11 points in the second quarter to keep the visitors in it as Galatasaray went into half-time with a 31-29 lead.
The third quarter would belong to Prague however as Eva Viteckova opened the period with a three-pointer to give them a lead they would never relinquish.
From there Prague outscored Gala 23-10 in the quarter. The visitors wouldn't give up and Alba Torrens became more of a factor in the fourth but they couldn't get it back.
