Temi Fagbenle narrowly failed to join the small group of Brits with European medals.

Her Venezia side were pipped 82-81 by Valencia in a gripping EuroCup final that went right to the wire.

Teenage prospect Raquel Carrera Quintana hit two decisive free throws with one second left in the Hungarian city of Szekszard to give the Spaniards the most dramatic of victories.

The Great Britain centre, already a WNBA champion, had 12 points and four rebounds.

It looked like Yvonne Anderson had won Venezia a maiden title when she brilliantly executed a give-and-go with her teammate Gintare Petronyte with 1.2 seconds remaining to hand the Italians a one-point advantage.

However, Anderson fouled Carrera under the basket on the last play of the contest and she held her nerve to convert both foul shots.
