Kangaroos Mechelen, without Belgian Cat Laure Resimont (single) and Renée Denys (single), did not have it under the market at Waregem. Top talent and 18-year-old Nastja Claessens (26 points, 7 rebounds, 5 assists) took her team in tow. Waregem went halfway to the dressing room with a 29-26 bonus. Kangaroos Mechelen made the difference in the third quarter (19-34). Ziomara Morrison (18 points, 13 rebounds), Morgan Bertsch (15 points, 13 rebounds) and Lisa Berkani (16 points) propelled the Maneblussers to a 48-58 bonus. However, Kangaroos Mechelen was not done with Waregem. The West Flemings unpacked with a remonte, so that the Mechelen women only triumphed 63-68. Good for a ninth consecutive league victory.
