YEKATERINBURG, Russia — Galatasaray won the EuroLeague championship after beating archrivals Fenerbahce in a historic 'Turkish derby' in Europe's highest basketball competition for women.
Fenerbahce, last year's runners-up, succumbed once again in the final, their first loss in this year's tournament.
Galatasaray seemed to have everything going for them on the offensive end early on, which - coupled with a solid defensive effort - gave them a massive lead with 26-7 at the end of the first quarter.
Galatasaray previously won the second-level European competition, FIBA EuroCup Women, in 2008.
