KTO Blumenau book their place in the final

KTO Blumenau beat Sampaio Basquet 84-79 in overtime to reach their first ever Brazil LBF play-off final.

KTO won the first match 65-63 in a hard-fought encounter but they had to come from behind in the second match to reach the final.


The match

Sampaio, who reached the final in 2020, led for the majority of the match and looked set to level the series at 1-1 when they took a 55-46 lead into the final quarter.

Katrina Pardee scored a two-pointer to put the hosts 12 points up with just under eight minutes to go but the visitors cut the deficit with major contributions coming from Leila Zabani, Vitoria Marcelino and Caca Martins.

All three scored as they made 11 unanswered points in just over three minutes.

They still trailed 68-65 with just over two minutes remaining, then Zabani reduced the lead to just one point.

Martins put the visitors ahead for the first time since the opening quarter with a three-point jump-shot, but with 14 seconds remaining, Jeanne Morais composed herself to score two free-throws and send the game to overtime.

Marcelino and Mariana Camargo showed their class in overtime to take the game away from Sampaio and send Blumenau to the final.

Vitoria Marcelino was given the MVP award after a tremendous performance, as she scored 22 points. She was prolific with 10 out of 12 attempts, a success rate of 83%. Below is her shot chart:
