London Lions girls are the first EuroCup Women finalist: eliminated coach Andrea Mazzon's Reyer Venezia.

Umana Reyer Venezia fails in the second game of the EuroCup Women semifinals, losing 71-59 to the London Lions after a 68-69 home defeat in the first game. Coach Andrea Mazzon’s girls try to play a first half full of grit and determination, but in the second half the energy is low and the London team, which increases its defensive intensity, takes advantage. The final score was 24-12 in the third period.

The London Lions were led by Megan Gustafson’s 19 points, Winterburn’s 19 points and former Fagbenle’s 14 points and 9 rebounds.

For Reyer Venezia, Jessica Shepard’s 21 points and 13 rebounds, Lisa Berkani’s 13 points and Matilde Villa’s 12 points were not enough.
