EUROLEAGUE WOMEN

Uni Seat Györ completed a sweep of Lotos Gdynia on Thursday with a big win in Poland.

Ákos Füzy's team won the first encounter in Hungary, 86-76, and rolled to an 87-71 victory the second time.

Lotos Gdynia are the only team that Györ have managed to beat in the competition so far this season.

Gdynia had been improving but seem to have been knocked out of their stride of late.

That was especially evident in the third quarter when Györ broke open a close contest and outscored their hosts 26-14 for a commanding 65-48 lead.

Ivana Jalcová missed Lotos Gdynia's first two shots of the third quarter and each time, the visitors scored with Nora Nagy and Iva Ciglar making lay-ups to push the lead to 43-34.

After the home side closed the deficit to 46-38, Quanitra Hollingsworth answered with a lay-up and then Hungarian Rita Rasheed followed with a three-point play.

Rasheed, who had a game-high 28 points, then connected from behind the arc to stretch the advantage to 54-38.

After falling behind by 22 points, Gdynia had a late rally and cut the deficit to eight on three occasions.

Györ were never in danger of blowing their lead, however, and won by 16 in the end.

Croatia international Ciglar added 20 points in the victory.
