Queralt Casas recorded the highest tally of her EuroLeague Women career to help Rivas Ecopolis return to winning ways with a 78-60 victory against BK Imos Brno in Group B.

The guard, who celebrated her 21st birthday a couple of weeks ago, racked up the same number of points as Rivas got back on track with a third win in their first four games.

The hosts could barely have wished for a more positive opening after scoring the first eleven points of the contest and it allowed them to lead from tip to buzzer.

After finally coming alive and working hard to establish a decent foothold, Brno were still very much in the game in the second half, albeit trailing 46-41.

But, they imploded and Rivas took full advantage with a 10-0 run and it put them firmly into the ascendency.

With the prolific Alena Hanusova well contained by the Rivas defence, the visitors couldn't recover and the home side had little trouble in finishing the job.

Gaby Ocete caught the eye behind the headline contribution of Casas with six assists and three steals.

There was additional reason for Rivas to be satisfied, since Frida Eldebrink returned to the floor against her former club having missed the last couple of games with injury.

Swedish national team star Ashley Key replied with 12 points for Brno.
