Gaye got the game going with a lay-up, to which Vukosavljevic added another one from mid-range, before Tina managed to score our first basket from inside the paint (3rd minute 2-4). Then Jeca put two more on the board for us, tying the game up. Vukosavljevic split a pair of foul shots at the line, and then so did Ayim (4-6). Tina brought us back to a tie game, but we were unable to take the lead, as Gaye made another lay-up. The teams were neck and neck in the first quarter, but the French were always one step ahead of us (7th minute 8-10). After that we came with a 9-0 run to pull away from Landes, which came to an end with a free throw by Turcinovic, but we still had the last laugh in the period with a long double by Jeca (10th minute 19-11).
Betti opened the second quarter with a double from mid-range, to which Vukosavljevic answered back from inside the paint. We kicked it up a notch in the second period, and got into a comfortable double-digit lead by the middle of the quarter scoring twice as many points as our opponents, which forced Julie Barennes to call her team to the bench to talk things over (16th minute 30-15). Gabby scored four coming back on the court, to which Landes answered back with a 6-0 run, and then Jeca made two free throws. However hard the French side tried to cut into their deficit we always had an answer to their actions keeping our double-digit lead intact until half-time (20th minute 45-28).
Ayim made a lay-up to start the third quarter, and then Tina fought hard for a double in the paint at the other end (22nd minute 47-30). Dalma was also able to make her first basket in the game for two points, to which Gabby added a three-point play. Dalma split a pair of free throws after drawing an unsportsmanlike foul, and then Gabby and Jeca both made doubles to stretch our lead even further (25th minute 57-30). Tina split a pair at the foul line, to which Landes answered back with a 7-0 run, forcing Dávid Gáspár to call his next time-out (58-37). Landes wouldn’t give up though, and reduced the gap between the sides to 18 points, but then we got back into rhythm right on time to put an end to their comeback effort (30th minute 67-42).
Landes started the final stage of the game with two quick shots from downtown, to which Paget and Gay added two free throws each making it a 10-0 run (33rd minute 67-52). After that Gabby went behind the free throw line for two shots and made both to get us started in the last period, and then a bit later Tina did the same. Right at the middle of the quarter Zsófi was finally able to hit a triple, making our first field goal in the period (35th minute 74-52). In the next three minutes we came up with an 8-0 run with our young guns on the floor led by Zsófi increasing our lead to thirty, when Chery stole the ball and ran down the court for a lay-up with it, but still Julie Barennes called a time-out for Landes (82-54). Dalma went in nicely for two off a great assist from Alíz to set the final score in the game, which meant that we managed to keep our unbeaten record in Euroleague (40th minute 84-54)!
Dávid Gáspár: It feels great that we were able to finish the Euroleague regular season with a 6-0 record. I am very proud of the players, we have worked hard for a long time to reach this result! It also feels great that we can now talk about playing to advance to the FINAL4. The team performed well today, I am very happy to have had the opportunity to send some players from our sports academy on court, and that they took their chance! I hope that we were able to aid the improvement of our young Hungarian players this way. Once again hats off to my team, I am proud of them!
Dalma Czukor: We have been doing well as a team right from the beginning. Our defense was great, I think the key was that there was no pressure on us, and that is how we were able to win.
We decided the outcome of the game in the first half of the Hungarian Cup final, and collected our tenth triumph in the competition!
