At the other end of the standings, USK Praha was handed their first loss despite good games from Valeriane Vukosavljevic and Alyssa Thomas as Stephanie Mavunga helped Polkowice leave with an 83-80 win. Valencia joined the tie at the top of the standings with a 76-68 win over Bourges. Emma Meesseman made an immediate impact on the continental level for Fenerbahce in their 85-67 win over Bologna.
