One spot remains as 10 more clubs land in the Regular Season

MUNICH (Germany) - There is only one more team to join the EuroCup Women Regular Season after 10 different clubs advanced to the main phase of the competition on Thursday night.

Six of those emerged via the EuroCup Women Qualifiers following on from Lointek Gernika, Grengewald and Banco Di Sardegna Sassari who all booked their places 24 hours earlier.

Elitzur Holon booked their berth with a hard-fought 90-80 road win at Esperides Kallitheas, building on their modest five-point advantage from the first meeting. There were some sensational performances, including Jennie Simms with 24 points, 13 rebounds and 8 assists.

Meanwhile Alex Harden racked up 17 points, 10 boards and 8 assists, Daniel Raber recorded 18 points and 11 rebounds, with Courtney Hurt adding 19 points and 10 boards.

Hatay BB Spor had too much power for Dafni Agiou Dimitriou as the Turkish side stormed their way to an 80-45 triumph off the back of some super smart shooting from Markeisha Gatling. She could barely miss and went 8 of 9 from the floor en route to 17 points and Ayse Cora contributed a nice cameo of 14 points. 

Martyna Pika and Steph Kostowicz combined to send KS Basket 25 Bydgoszcz sailing into the Regular Season as they beat OA Chanion 84-54. The former had 19 points and 6 assists, while Kostowicz amassed 14 points and 10 rebounds as the Polish club won by a massive 56 points on aggregate in the tie.

Closely matched in the first leg, Eleftheria Moschatou and Slavia Banska Bystrica engaged in another tight affair. The momentum seemed to be with the Greek side as they had won by a point, but couldn't make home advantage pay in the second leg.

Slavia extracted revenge with a nail-biting 61-58 victory thanks mainly to a spectacular 28 points and 13 rebounds from Jacaira Allen, with Milica Deura excellent in the backcourt with 11 points and 10 assists. The defeat was tough on Brittany Brewer who logged 16 points and 15 rebounds.

Ramat Hasharon also had to keep their nerve as they completed a 11-point aggregate success against Ludovika Csata, thanks to a 71-68 second leg win. Charli Collier came up with another eye-catching show as she added 24 points and 9 rebounds, with her Hasharon teammate Alisia Jenkins claiming 12 points, 14 boards and 5 assists.

Once again BLMA were far too strong for Plamen Pozega as they took a one-sided 112-58 success, based around a stellar 23 points, 14 assists and 6 steals from Romane Bernies. There was also a highly productive 22 points from Haley Peters.

Four clubs in the shape of KKZ Crvena Zvezda, ACS Sepsi-SIC, Botas SK and Elizur Ramla all join having fallen short in the EuroLeague Women Qualifiers.

The last remaining EuroCup Women Regular Season place will be filled by whoever loses the outstanding EuroLeague Women Qualifiers tie between ESBVA and Spar Girona. The second leg is scheduled to be played next Wednesday October 19.
