An exciting series came down to one game for the championship on Monday in Kursk. It did not disappoint, staying close throughout as UMMC held a narrow lead for most of the game. Dynamo Kursk used the support of the home fans to make a late surge, tying the game with Epiphanny Prince leading the way. In the end, Diana Taurasi carried the team on her shoulders and a last shot to win the game for the hosts was not close. The title heads back to Ekaterinburg 83-82, but the dominant team in the league certainly had to work hard for everything this season.
