They outrebounded Movil Estudiantes 36-24 including 31 on the defensive glass. Baskonia looked well-organized offensively handing out 22 assists. Worth to mention a great performance of Georgian Tornike Shengelia (206-91, agency: Wasserman) who helped to win the game recording 19 points and 5 rebounds. Argentinian guard Luca Vildoza (190-95) contributed with 18 points and 5 assists for the winners. Baskonia’s coach Velimir Perasovic felt very confident that he used entire bench which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. American point guard Phil Pressey (180-91, college: Missouri) answered with 13 points and 5 assists for Movil Estudiantes. Movil Estudiantes will play next round against Gran Canaria trying to get back on the winning streak. Baskonia will try to continue on its current victory against FC Barcelona on the road.
The most crucial game of the last round was a loss of Baloncesto Fuenlabrada (0-1) in Madrid. Hosts were defeated by Burgos (1-0) 87-76. Point guard Ferran Bassas (183-92) stepped up and scored 14 points and 4 assists for the winners and Goran Huskic chipped in 9 points and 7 rebounds. Burgos’ coach Joan Penarroya allowed to play the deep bench players saving starting five for next games. At the losing side DR Congolese Christian Eyenga (201-89) responded with 23 points and 6 rebounds. Burgos will play against La ICL Manresa (#4) at home in the next round.
