15. Miljana Bojovic (Good Angels Kosice)
It was an off-night shooting for Miljana Bojovic, but she made up for it with her passing game, collecting 12 assists.

Excellent shooting performances from Allie Quigley and Petra Kulichova proved the highlight for Good Angels Kosice at they claimed an impressive 77-67 victory against EuroLeague Women Group B rivals Nadezhda.

The feel good factor continues to flood through the Slovakian club as they claimed a sixth win in seven games, although they didn't always have their own way against the visitors from Orenburg.

Whilst they powered their way to a handy 22-15 advantage during the first ten minutes as Quigley found her range, Nadezhda composed themselves and countered with an improved second quarter to make it a one-shot game at 43-41, by half-time.

The third quarter saw the home side reassert themselves and get back on the front foot to move 60-49 ahead after yet another jump shot by Quigley, but again Nadezhda rallied.

They outscored Good Angels 11-5 to get within five points in the last period, but Quigley stepped up once more to convert a three-pointer from the corner and it knocked the stuffing out of the visitors.

The shooting guard finished with 21 points, whilst in the paint, Kulichova was even more clinical with 15 points and nine rebounds.

Whilst playmaker Miljana Bojovic could barely make a shot all night until the closing minutes when she threw up her arms in relief after finally getting one to drop, her 12 assists went some way to making up for her frustration as she equaled her own record for the most in a game this season.

Montenegro national team star Iva Perovanovic had 14 points and eight rebounds for Nadezhda.
