Bourges, the defending French champions, is undefeated through 22 regular season rounds this season and is just a fortnight away from their 2008 EuroLeague Final Four clash with Czech super club Gambrinus Sika Brno.

USVO (17-5) sit second behind Bourges on the French Basketball League (FBL) ladder with many predicting them to inflict Bourges first loss of the season prior to tip-off but another outstanding performance from Snell, who hit 4-of-5 three point attempts again proved the difference.

She also tallied four rebounds in 33 minutes on court.

Bourges' Final Four opponent Sika Brno also looms as a formidable opponent. Themselves yet to lose in the Czech top flight through 20 games, they dismantled Valosun Brno, 119-55, over the weekend.

Bourges' Final Four clash with Sika Brno will be held in Brno on Friday, April 11 with tip-off at 6pm local time.

Bourges' next game FBL is against the tenth placed Tarbes (9-13) on Wednesday, April 4.
