In Novosibirsk, Miah-Marie Langlois led Dynamo-GUVD to an 80-65 win over Grishaeva and last place Dynamo Moscow. Emma Meesseman helped win the battle inside as Spartak Moscow won 66-46 at Kazanochka. A tight game in Noginsk went to the hosts 55-53 over struggling Energia Ivanovo. The most anticipated game of the round proved a disappointment as Nneka Ogwumike’s strong performance was not nearly enough for Dynamo Kursk as they lost 86-65 to Nadezhda in Orenburg. Britney Jones and Chevakata won 76-70 at MBA to create some separation between the top teams and the ones in the middle that have escaped the bottom. UMMC welcomed Enisey to Ekaterinburg and dispatched them 78-40 to stay unbeaten.
