Gospic Hit Taranto With Third-Quarter Stampede



Gospic Croatia clinched their third triumph in the last four games in the EuroLeague Women with a 91-75 demolition of visiting CB Taranto.

The hosts broke open a close game in the third quarter on Wednesday when they outscored the Italian side 28-11 to grab a 76-53 stranglehold on the contest.

By the time Kalisha Keane had made a jump shot, the lead was 62-44 and there was no way back for Taranto.

Vrsaljko had 20 points, Julie McBride 16 and Mandir 15 for Gospic, who improved to 4-5 in Group C.
