Beşiktaş 70, Telge Basket 68

Lady Eagles win their second Eurocup game.

Teams matched each other point for point in the evenly-played early going, but as the game rolled on, Lavender established her presence under the boards to give Beşiktaş a 17-15 edge at the end of first. Taking over from her fellow American, Vandersloot started connecting from outside in the following quarter, which stretched the margin to seven, 32-25, after two quarters of play.
The Swedish visitors tightened up defensively in the third and managed to tie the game at 40-40 going into final quarter.  The seesaw battle continued in the fourth as the game went to overtime, 61-61. Despite Telge Basket’s refusal to back down, Lavender hit a clutch bucket in the dying seconds of OT to help Beşiktaş squeeze out a 70-68 win. Vandersloot led the Lady Eagles with 19 points while Yasemin Horasan poured in 16 and Lavender added 15.
