EuroCup Women Quarter-Finals first leg: social media spotlight and reaction

MUNICH (EuroCup Women) We check in with those involved in the first leg of the Quarter-Finals and take a look at how the action went down on social media.

There was something of a surprise as Galatasaray sustained their first defeat in the competition as they crashed 73-62 at Good Angels Kosice.

"We did not play our best game and we knew that we had to do our best for all 40 minutes, but we did not manage it," bemoaned Galatasaray center, Kristine Vitola as her team also suffered the loss of Moriah Jefferson to an injury.

Meanwhile, Victoria Baugh was sensational with a double-double for the home side.

She said: "We played great and like a team - even if we were a little bit nervous at the start. 

"But, we stayed focus and we had great defensive rebounding, while we played very well on offense and were good in transition - these factors were the key to our success," added the forward.

It's all to play for in the other game taking place in Istanbul between Yakin Dogu Universitesi and ESBVA-LM, after the former left French soil clutching a 68-67 victory.

And as if Yakin Dogu weren't already stacked enough, there was a debut for Belarusian legend Yelena Leuchanka.
