Winning a match at home to an undefeated team by making 26 turnovers? Yes, this is possible! This is exactly what the BC Polkowice basketball players did.
It was a meeting full of turns, but in the end the “orange” turned out to be three “points” better. This is a great feeling!
Undoubtedly, Stephanie Mavunga was the hero. Just look at the stat line for the champions of Central Poland. 25 points, 17 rebounds and four blocks.
Polkowice players had a 61:50 lead going into the third quarter. After that, the housewives threw themselves into a maddening pursuit. Effect? Series 19: 2. And just when it looked like they were catching the wind in their sails, Orange got back into the game.

The crucial part is the combat strike. The decisive goals were scored by Sasa Kadu (from behind the arc) and Yvonne Turner, who took advantage of a misunderstanding in defense of their rivals and set the outcome of the match with … 73 seconds before the end.
The Braga players had two chances at the end to lead to the equaliser. First, however, Teresa Fioralova did not control the time and fired a shot from behind the half with … 7 seconds left. Then Tiga Oblak had a chance after the loss of Pulkovichi’s players, but the “three from the knee” did not reach the goal.
Coach Karol Kowalewski didn’t even want to look at this test, and after all he lowered his head and sighed deeply. His team leads BC Polkowice with a score of 3:1 with ZVVZ USK and Valencia.
Apart from Mavunga, Artemis Spano, with 18 points (7/11 of the match), deserves an honorable mention after the match in Prague. The ZVVZ USK squad included basketball players with a past in Polish clubs: Maria Konde, Tyga Oblak and Barbora Wrzecinski, better known by her maiden name Palentova.
