On Wednesday, Dynamo Kursk needed a win at home to extend their season and avoid a very disappointing finish to their season. They found their offensive rhythm with Angel McCoughtry at her best and Sonja Petrovic playing her usual role. Ekaterinburg took advantage of Brittney Griner being left unchecked in the post and Maya Moore was as brilliant as ever as they won 94-91 and took home another trophy. The league’s favorites were able to accomplish all of their goals with some key changes midseason, avoiding any need for the excitement of last year’s finals.
