Scandone AV - Mornar Bar 53-60

There was an upset when second-best Italian Scandone AV (8-4) lost to bottom-ranked Montenegrin Mornar Bar (3-9) in Avellino 53-60 on Wednesday. The guests took control from the first minutes by winning the initial quarter 20-13. But Scandone AV won second period 13-8. However it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. It was a good game for American Cameron Tatum (200-88, college: Tennessee) who led his team to a victory with 17 points, 6 rebounds and 6 assists. FYR Macedonian center Vukota Pavic (203-93) contributed with 14 points for the winners. American forward Adonis Thomas (198-93, college: Memphis) replied with 13 points and 6 rebounds and his fellow American import guard Levi Randolph (196-92, college: Alabama) added 9 points and 5 rebounds in the effort for Scandone AV. Both coaches tested many bench players and allowed the starting five to rest. Mornar Bar maintains eighth position in Group D with 3-9 record. Loser Scandone AV keeps the second place with four games lost. Mornar Bar will face higher ranked Juventus (#4) in Utena in the next round and it may be quite challenging game. Scandone AV will play on the road against the league's leader CB Canarias where they are definitely not considered as a favorite in this game either.
