All Dynamo players improved their perfomance on Sunday. American center Kelsey Lang had brilliant first half and made all shots (7-of-7) to give her team a nine point lead 43-34 before the break. Lang finished the game with 18 points on 9-of-10 shooting from the field.
Albina Razheva posted 18 points on 8-of-14 shooting from the field. Dynamo captain Olga Vorobeva shined in defense and offense. She scored 14 points, including two crucial three pointers, and added three steals.
Lindsay Allen excelled in point guard position. She had 11 points and nine assists.

Ana Marija-Begič posted 15 points and seven rebounds, while Tiffany Brown finished the record breaking season with nine points.
Udominate Basket played without starting point guard Brianna Kiesel, that`s why Tiffany Brown played at the point instead of more comfortable shooting guard position.
The Swedes led by nine points early in the second quarter (15-24) but were outscored in the paint later on.
Dynamo scored twice more points in the paint (38-20, first half 24-10).
