The Regular Season in FIBA Europe Cup just ended. The round was exceptionally exciting as three games ended with a tiny margin. The fans could enjoy quite many interesting games in the last round. The round ended with change at the leadership position and games ending by tiny margin. Here is the last round review presented by ESL.

Second defeat of league’s leader Russian Enisey (4-2) against second ranked Romanian Cluj Napoca (5-1) 97-83 was the most important game of the last round. It was a key game for the top position in Group G. The game without a history. Cluj Napoca led from the first minutes and controlled entire game increasing their lead in each quarter. They dominated down low during the game scoring 58 of its points in the paint compared to Enisey’s 34. Cluj Napoca forced 20 Enisey turnovers. They looked well-organized offensively handing out 25 assists. 31 personal fouls committed by Enisey helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities. It was a good game for American swingman Patrick Richard (196-90, college: McNeese St., agency: Inception Sports) who led his team to a victory with 21 points and 4 assists. Croatian power forward Karlo Zganec (206-95) contributed with 15 points, 8 assists and 4 steals for the winners. American guard Davion Berry (193-91, college: Weber St.) replied with 26 points and 5 steals for Enisey. Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Cluj Napoca keeps a position of Group G leader, which they share with Bakken. Enisey at the other side dropped to the second place with two games lost. They share the position with Kormend. They were replaced at the leadership position by Benfica.
The game had a very big importance for second-ranked Danish Bakken as it allowed them to take a leadership position in Group H. Bakken edged 4th ranked Polish Legia in Risskov 77-74. American forward Ryan Evans (202-90, college: Wisconsin) scored 14 points, 6 rebounds and 7 assists to lead the charge for the winners and Darko Jukic chipped in 12 points and 7 rebounds during the contest. Bakken’s coach allowed to play the deep bench players in such tough game. The best for the losing side was swingman Michal Michalak (197-93, agency: Octagon Europe) with 18 points. Bakken (5-1) have an impressive five-game winning streak. As mentioned above they took over a top position. Legia lost fifth consecutive game. They keep the fourth place with five games lost.
The most crucial game of the last round was a loss of Belarusian Tsmoki-Minsk (3-3) at the home court on Wednesday night. Hosts were defeated by Ukrainian Kyiv Basket (4-2) 92-84. It was a key game for the top position in Group F. Viacheslav Petrov notched 20 points, 7 rebounds and 4 assists to lead the effort. Even 15 points and 9 rebounds by Alexandre Gavrilovic did not help to save the game for Tsmoki-Minsk. Tsmoki-Minsk’s coach rotated ten players in this game, but that didn’t help. Kyiv Basket keeps a position of Group F leader, which they share with Kormend. Defending Belarusian champion Tsmoki-Minsk dropped to the second place with three games lost.
We should not miss a road victory of second ranked Belgian Spirou Charleroi (3-3) over one of their biggest challengers Dutch Groningen (2-4) 78-64. The best player for the winners was Anthony Beane who scored 28 points. Spirou Charleroi maintains second position in Group E with 3-3 record having just nine point less than leader Benfica. Groningen at the other side keeps the third place with four games lost.
And finally the game worth to mention about is Levski Lukoil’s 22-point blow over Dnipro 83-61. It was a good game for Yordan Minchev who led his team to a victory with 19 points and 6 rebounds (on 7-of-9 shooting from the field). Dnipro’s coach gave up on the game allowing to play twelve players seeing no chance for a win. Levski Lukoil maintains third position in Group F with 3-3 record having just nine point less than leader Benfica which they share with defeated Dnipro. Loser Dnipro dropped to the third place with four games lost.
