Wisla Can-Pack came from behind in the final quarter to end Round 1 of their EuroLeague Women campaign with a 74-71 victory over Gospic CO.

Wisla improved to 10-4 after reclaiming the lead in the game with 1:53 to go when Ewelina Kobryn completed a three-point play from the free-throw line.

The late dramatics came after Wisla blew a 61-53 lead, watching Gospic go on an incredible 13-0 run to pull 66-61 ahead on Marija Vrsaljko's jump-shot with 6:57 to go.

Back-to-back baskets from Milka Bjelica and Nicole Powell pulled Wisla back within one, but Vrsaljko made it 69-65 with jump-shot and free-throw, and then Ivana Jurcevic added another jump-shot to make it 71-65.

But Wisla then scored the final nine points of the game to come back and win it, with Kobryn scoring the last five.

Kalisha Keane missed a late three for Gospic which could have tied it.
