EUROLEAGUE WOMEN PLAY OFFS
|Sonja Petrovic has carried her red-hot form into the play-offs |
Sonja Petrovic claimed top performer honours on the first game day of the EuroLeague Women play offs, taking Sparta&K to a headline-grabbing game 1 victory.
The Serbian small forward carried her form from the past few months into the post season, scoring a personal season-equalising best 27 points to go with eight rebounds and four assists, eclipsing her season averages in all three categories as her team victored 81-43 over UE Sopron.
Such was the convincing fashion of their victory, coming in second on the top performer's list with an efficiency of 32 - two less than Petrovic - was her front court compadre Natalia Vieru.
The Russian center finished with an 18-point, 10-rebound double-double, also matching her season-best haul in points.
Completing the podium with an efficiency of 30 was Kayseri Kaski spor power forward Lara Sanders, whose 17-point, 14-rebound double-double helped assure her team a come-from-behind 63-50 win over Beretta Famila.
