Anastasiya Verameyenka put Fenerbahce on her back, coming up with a fine double-double and four blocks

A classy display from Anastasiya Veremayenka helped Fenerbahce ease their way to a 68-60 win at BK Imos Brno and remain unbeaten in EuroLeague Women Group B.

The Belarusian centre claimed a double-double of 11 points and 11 rebounds from a five of six floor-shooting performance as the Turkish giants moved to within touching distance of an early play-off spot.

But, their sixth consecutive victory wasn't plain sailing, with Brno gaining the upper hand during some impressive play during the second quarter.

Fenerbahce had moved 29-24 ahead, but the hosts put together eight points without reply as Swedish forward Danielle Hamilton briefly gave Brno a three-point lead.

The visitors then found a greater defensive focus and regained the initiative by holding the home team to a paltry eight points during the third quarter.

They also outscored Brno 17-4 in a devastating spell across the third and fourth quarter break, which gave them the platform they needed for victory.

Barbora Kasparkova produced arguably her best display in a Brno shirt, with the 21-year-old claiming an efficient 11 points and dishing up four assists.

Meanwhile Verameyenka also swatted four shots and moved to within four of becoming only the third player in EuroLeague Women history to reach the landmark of 150 blocked shots in the competition.
