With Alana Beard and Monique Currie on their side, and at home in front of a crowd of 1,800 spectators, Lotos Gdynia (2-4) hoped they could beat Ros Casares (4-2) after losing by over forty points to El Ros in Euroleague play in Spain. Gdynia made a valiant second-quarter comeback with 25 points - but only scored 23 for the rest of the game as visiting Ros Casares won easily 85-59.
The boxscore of the game is here.
Ros Casares's win puts them alone in second place in Group C with just four games left to play. The top four finishers of each of the four groups will go on to second-round play.
Erika de Souza did not play in this game. She is still suffering a muscle injury. I suspect that if Ros Casares wins one of its four remaining Euroleague games, they should be a clinch to go to the second round. 5-5 in your group should get you there.
