The all-French series opened the round on Wednesday with Lattes Montpellier going to Charleville-Mezieres and getting a solid 91-75 win led by Taylor Wurtz as Haley Peters had another brilliant effort for Carolo, but it was not enough. The first series on Thursday opened play in Orenburg as Nadezhda led the entire time on their way to a 58-50 win, but Avenida will feel like they can overturn the deficit in Salamanca next week. Girona ended up the most decisive result, beating Lyon 80-57 on the road. Schio had the early lead, but Cukurova fought back and won late 79-75 behind Astou Ndour and Alina Iagupova and will now feel like they can take care of business at home.
