A spectacular start by Sparta&K M.R. Vidnoje paved the way for a 68-55 success at Kibirkstis-Vici Vilnius and consecutive victories in EuroLeague Women Group C.

The result also condemned the hosts to back-to-back defeats, but Kibirkstis could not have expected anything else after they were caught sleeping at both ends of the court during the first quarter.

Vidnoje exploded early with a 29-8 opening period and as hard as the home side tried, there was to be no way back and especially with their outside shooting game below the usual high standard.

Once Sparta&K went 60-38 ahead early in the fourth quarter, it was effectively game over.

A late scoring splurge by Vilnius and holding their guests to just eight points in the last eight minutes of the contest did little more than paper over some major cracks.

Evgenia Belyakova and Sonja Petrovic both harvested 19 points and seven rebounds for the winning team with Petrovic also dishing out fivee assists.

Former EuroLeague Women Final Eight MVP Asjha Jones added a noteworthy 14 points and eight rebounds.

Vita Kuktiene and Sofija Aleksandravicius combined for 27 points in defeat, but lacked any support in the scoring stakes.
