The second game in Ekaterinburg was played on Sunday and the hosts started better this time as Alba Torrens found her groove on the way to an 82-69 win. Dynamo Kursk shifted their lineup, which gave Natalia Zhedik a much bigger scoring role, but they will now need to rally at home on Wednesday to put up a bigger fight as the promise of a blistering start to the season is starting to fade.
