Jenaya Wade-Fray and her Standard Life Great Britain Women teammates have pulled off the biggest scalp of their pre-Olympic schedule following their emphatic 81-57 win over the Czech Republic in Prague on Wednesday evening.
Wade-Fray went 3 for 4 from the Field, that included 1 for 1 from behind the Three Point Line and 2 for 2 from the Free Throw Line for her 9 Points. Wade-Fray grabbed 2 Rebounds and had 1 Assist.
The Czechs, currently ranked fourth in the world, proved no match for a Great Britain side who were in front the entire game.
With Great Britain holding a 42-27 lead at the half, the Czechs tried to mount their comeback in the third and cut the lead to just six points (52-46), but Wade-Fray settled any nerves with a clutch three-pointer and the home side never threatened again.
"The Czechs started out lacking energy and we jumped on them and never let them back in the game," said a delighted coach Tom Maher. "In the past I'm sure we would have, but we've grown a lot and I couldn't be happier."
He added: "It was an unbelievable win, it was like a dream and we played super.
"Our efforts were fantastic, some of the rebounding was really special and we played really good basketball."
Despite playing their sixth game in five days, Great Britain looked the stronger side throughout as they out-rebounded a much bigger Czech side 31-22, while shooting an impressive 54% from the field.
Jo Leedham led all scorers for the sixth game in a row with 19 points, but there were also strong all-round performances from Julie Page (13 points), Temi Fagbenle (12) and Natalie Stafford (11).
Leedham marked her 50th cap with an incredible 12 of the team's 17 steals, but put down her success to a great team effort during the game, especially at the defensive end.
"That was absolutely amazing," enthused Leedham. "It's the first time I've felt we've all clicked and been on the same page, and really held together for the full forty minutes.
"The defense was unbelievable and I'm astounded at just how unbelievable it was."
She added: "The girls were amazing tonight and to come here and get a win over the fourth-ranked Czech Republic is absolutely unbelievable."
Wade-Fray and her Great Britain teammates now return to the UK to continue their Olympic preparation boosted by the fact that this summer they have now beaten four of the top twelve teams in the world.
