A 20-point haul from Jantel Lavender helped Famila Schio to blow out struggling Arras 74-49 in EuroLeague Women Group B as the Italian club protected its' unbeaten record with a fourth straight victory.
Schio continued their impressive start to the new season although they barely needed to get out of first gear against an Arras team who has yet to find a EuroLeague Women win and continues to struggle domestically.
They were at least boosted by the long awaited return to health of Ukranian forward Olesia Malashenko, although this boost was quickly forgotten in a rotten start to the contest.
The hosts made a quick-fire opening and had established a double-digit lead at 22-11 after Laura Macchi sunk a three-pointer. Whilst Arras managed to stem the tide in the second quarter, they were soon back on the ropes just minutes after the re-start.
Schio rattled off a 15-2 run at the beginning of the third quarter and that set the tone for the remainder of the game as they rode out comfortable winners.
In addition to the fine work of Lavender, Elodie Godin had 10 points and 10 rebounds.
Dawn Evans was the only player to scrape into double-figures for Arras who suffered from a woeful shooting night.
