EC: Three defeats for the ABA League sides
On Wednesday, the ABA League sides weren’t as successful in European contests as they were on Tuesday. Cedevita, Mornar and Partizan NIS have all suffered defeats.
On the road in Turkey, Cedevita have resisted Tofas well and have even been up by 3 points at halftime. However, in the second half, the guests managed to come up with a major comeback and have turned the game around in their favour. The final score of the game in Bursa was 94:89. For Cedevita, Justin Cobbs had 15 points, while Elgin Cook and Ivan Ramljak followed with 13 apiece.
Partizan NIS have also played in Turkey this round, as they have faced Turk Telekom on the road in Ankara. The hosts were a better of the two teams all game long and have come up with the victory in the end, as they celebrated the score of 77:72. Vanja Marinković shined for Partizan NIS despite the defeat with 28 points. Marcus Paige was second most efficient with 14.
The last to step on court on Wednesday were the Mornar squad. They hosted Rytas of Vilnius at home in their Topolica Sports Hall, but the game had a bitter ending for them, as they suffered a 92:69 defeat by the Lithuanians, that were simply too strong in the second half, after the first one ended with a tie (49:49). Bronson Koenig was the top scorer of Mornar with 14 points, while Strahinja Mićović added 11.
