Probuild Lions added their names to the league leaders, defeating CTO Amsterdam 77-85 on their court.

Katie Bussey led all players in the league, exploding for 26 while Molly McDowell made 14, adding 8 assists. Belinda Bos added 13 for the Supercup winner, while Ayla Simdorm claimed rookie of the week honours by hitting double digits for the winners.

Isabella Slim led CTO with 13 points, being accompanied in double digits by Laura Cornelius (173-PG-96) and Maxime Essenstam who both had 10 points. Loyce Bettonvil had 8 points and 15 rebounds.

After a solid preseason and a blowout in the Supercupgame last week, Probuild was held back a little , but as CTO wasn't in their best shape either, both teams made for an exciting game. CTO had a 8-2 advantage before Probuild got their motors running on the way to 8-11. After 19-21 Probuild extended their lead by two threes of sensational guard Katie Bussey to 38-46 at halfway.

After the break CTO did a better job using their height adventage, and they came back to 67-71 on a basket of Richelle van der Keijl but Horelika, McDowell, Bos and Bussey made a run to 71-82 ending the hopes for the hometeam. Aneta Horelika had 11 points and 10 boards in her league debut.
