Iliana Rupert led all scorers with 25 points and added a game-high 8 rebounds, while the French side also got big contributions from Laetitia Guapo and Kristen Mann, who both had 10 points off the bench.

Yvonne Anderson scored a team-high 12 points in a losing effort for Reyer, who have now reached the Final of the competition on three occasions without ever lifting the trophy,

The 20-year-old Rupert was voted Final Four MVP as she impressed the accredited media at the event with her dominant performances, especially in the Final.  The French center averaged 17 points, 8 rebounds, 2.5 steals at the Final Four. 

In the Third-Place Game earlier on Thursday, Galatasaray cruised to a 75-67 victory over CBK Mersin Yenisehir Bld in an all-Turkish clash. Kaela Davis led the Istanbul side with 17 points and 8 rebounds while Kelsey Plum came up with 16 points, 8 boards and 7 assists.

This year’s event in Bourges marked the second consecutive time the EuroCup Women season culminated in a Final Four tournament. In the 2021 event, in Hungary, Valencia Basket defeated Umana Reyer 82-81 in the Final.
