MUNICH (Germany) - There was a parting of ways on Thursday night as the curtain came down on the EuroCup Women campaign for a number of clubs, while seven  teams celebrated cementing their place in the next phase.

There was agony and heartache for ACS Sepsi Sic who finally beat Artego Bydgoszcz at the fourth time of asking this season, but their terrific and hard-fought 79-71 win just wasn't enough to overturn a 9-point deficit from the first leg at home. Laura Miskiniene helped to save the skin of the relieved hosts with an important 24 points and 12 rebounds.

Olympiacos posted a standout effort against Aluinvent DVTK Miskolc as they soared to an 84-73 success, with the scoreline much more comfortable than it looked after a late rally by the visitors who had held a 5-point advantage landing in Athens. Veteran Greek winger Jacki Gemelos set the tone at both ends of the court with a stellar 19 points, 7 steals and 5 assists.

One of the other most impressive results of the round came from Besiktas TRC Insaat who had trailed by 4 points to Roche Vendee, but went to France and pulled out an 82-73 success. Yvonne Anderson showed out for the visitors with  27 points, 9 rebounds, 6 steals and 5 assists.

There was guaranteed history for either Basket Hema SKW or Cadi La Seu who have never been as far in the competition and it was the latter who took another step forward. Building on both a modest first leg advantage, Cadi La Seu recorded a 72-63 victory with Sydney Wiese adding 20 points.

WBC Enisey and InvestInTheWest ENEA Gorzow were virtually inseparable during the first leg last month with the Polish side sneaking victory by a solitary point. But their Siberian opponents made home advantage pay in more ruthless fashion by producing a brilliant 93-77 win.

Kyara Linskens continued her impressive campaign with a dazzling 13 points, 14 rebounds, 8 assists, 3 blocks and 2 steals.

Nikolina Milic poured in 24 points for Lointek Gernika Bizkaia as they powered past Tsmoki-Minsk 83-56 to sail into the next stage, while Sparta&K M.R. Vidnoje had already done the hard work in their tie with BCF Elfic Fribourg Basket by claiming a big triumph on the road. They finished the job in similarly effective fashion as Anastasiia Komarova amassed 13 points, 6 rebounds, 4 assists and 3 blocks to headline a comfortable 79-63 success.

The seven teams that progressed on Thursday night came 24 hours after CCC Polkowice had booked their spot with another commanding victory over Botas SK. Ana Matia Filip starred with a superb 22 points and 15 boards in a one-sided 84-35 victory.
