Girona eases into the semifinals with 61-54 win over Lyon
After blowing out Lyon last week, 80-57, Girona didn’t play with as much intensity but still walked into the semifinals with a comfortable 61-54 win. Given the advantage Girona came into the game with, they allowed Lyon to get a 32-26 lead at halftime. However, a 23-10 third quarter run in Girona’s favor ended any remote chance at Lyon making things interesting.
Gabby Williams scored 16 points to lead Girona.
