Beşiktaş 72, Tarsus Belediyesi 69

Lady Eagles sneak out a win on the road

Fielding a lineup of Korstin, Tuğba, Yasemin, Hoffman and Vandersloot, they played better defence in the early going and opened up a 6-point, 20-14, lead by the end of first quarter. Tarsus battled back to trim the margin in the second, but the Black and Whites were still up, 37-33, at the half.

The hosts maintained their momentum in the third as they managed to creep ahead, 50-48, heading into the fourth quarter. The final stanza was a real shootout, but a late Beşiktaş rally enabled the Lady Eagles to pull out a narrow victory, 72-69. Vandersloot led Beşiktaş with 17 points while Yasemin Horasan poured in 15 and Hoffman had 13.
