After the home win over Besiktas (83-74), Mechelen had a much more difficult time in Istanbul. The great performances of the American Catherine Reese (24 points and 8 rebounds) and the Latvian Paula Strautmane (12 points) were not enough for the victory. At halftime it was still 44-43 and after the third quarter it was 67-64, but things went wrong in the fourth quarter.

Mechelen is currently second in group E of the EuroCup. The top two advance to the sixteenth finals. Next Thursday, the Belgian champion will receive the Slovakian Slavia Banska Bystrica on the final day. In Slovakia the Kangaroos won 60-96.
