Wisla-Can Pack eased the agony of their earlier buzzer-beating loss to Rivas Ecopolis in EuroLeague Women Group B after Allie Quigley and Jantel Lavender combined to hand their team an eye-catching 76-62 win in Spain.

Rivas coach Jose Hernandez coached Wisla for four seasons, but was unable to mastermind a double against his former team, with his players unable to contain Quigley and Lavender.

Both posted outstanding 12 of 19 shooting performances to help their side preserve their unbeaten record on the road and jump up to second place in the standings

Quigley finished with a season high individual haul of 26 points and Lavender claimed her fifth double-double by harvesting 25 points and 14 rebounds.

Having trailed 25-22 early in the second quarter, Wisla suddenly changed the entire reflection of the game with a devastating spell as they outscored the hosts 19-3 to soar into the ascendancy.

They never looked back, managing to keep Rivas at arms' length throughout the second half, the closest the home team managing to get being when they reduced the deficit to 53-48 in the third period.

Rachel Allison led Rivas with 16 points but couldn't prevent the Liga Femenina side from slipping to a third straight loss.
