Sparta&K Moscow Region guaranteed themselves top spot in EuroLeague Women Group C for another week after a blowout triumph over Frisco Brno on Wednesday.

The Russian giants, winners of the EuroLeague Women in 2007, '08, '09 and '10, prevailed 97-62 for their sixth victory in eight games.

They swept both games against Brno, winning the first, 87-70, in the opening week of the EuroLeague Women back on October 12.

If ever there were a first-quarter knockout, Wednesday's game had it in Vidnoje.

Pokey Chatman's team held Brno to just four points in the opening eight minutes and 25 seconds and led by 26.

The Sparta&K advantage was 33-7 at the end of the frame and the hosts cruised the rest of the way.

Candice Dupree had 10 of her game-high 25 points in the first quarter.

She also pulled down six of her seven rebounds in the period.

When the game came to a merciful conclusion for Brno, the Czech team had been out-rebounded, 48-30.

Jan Bobrovsky's side slumped to 1-7 with the setback.
