Keravnos Strovolou - Krasnye Krylia 51-82
The Russians of of Krasnye proved to be to strong for the Cypriots and beat them for a second time (actually thrashing them) locking once and for all their top seat in the Group B of the Eurochallenge and now the Cyprus site of Coach Yiannaras needs at least one victory in the remaining two road games so as to have some chances to qualify as the second team in the group as currently with the 2-2 record is at the second position of the group together with the Finnish Joensuun Kataja after their road win over the Romanians of Ploiesti with 80-67 to leave the Romanians winless in the group. So the most crucial game for the team of Keravnos Strovolou will take place in Finland.

So, about the game now, a catastrophic third period where the Russians of Samara with the quartet of Omar Thomas (196-F-82, college: UTEP), Nikita Balashov (207-F-91), Chester Simmons (196-G-82, college: Washington) and Aaron Miles (186-G-83, college: Kansas) in a great performance, Keravnos Strovolou was not able to defend its homw court and lost very easily since the Russians scored 24 points in the specific period while Keravnos was able to score only 11! Not only that, but the players of Keravnos got very nervous due to the very good defence by the Russians so the unsportsmanlike foul by the captain of Keravnos at the end of the 3rd period gave the chance to the Russians to end the quarter with +18 points (40-58) and actually give an early end to the game. It is worth mentioning that Keravnos scored only 8 points in the second period while another 11 were added in the third period, so in a total of 20 minutes Keravnos scored 18 points in compare to the 22 points scored in the first period where the home team outscored Russians with 22-17, after that first period the troups of Yiannaras collapsed in total.

Crocker's very low productivity game (he had 0/5 three pointers in the first three periods and 1/7 in total) together with the very bad game by Andre Owens (193-G-80, college: Houston), he ended the game with 1/4 in 2's and 1/4 in 3's and a total of 6 points and Lawrence Kinnard (202-F-86, college: UAB)'s 3/8 three pointers were gave the chance to the Russians by playing simple basketball to score nearly from all edges and their stats proved so, as Coach Yiannaras couldn't stop Nikita Balashov who was scoring with every single way. The very low performance by Trisokkas (1 point with 0/4 two pointers and 1/2 free throws), the low productivity by Maze (3/7 in 2's and 1/2 in 3's) let the Russians to develop this +31 points deficit since in the last 2 minutes the Russians succeed a 10-0 to give to the game a celebrating close.
Top scorers:
Keravnos: Lawrence Kinnard 11 and Julian Vaughn (205-C/F-88, college: Georgetown) 10
Krasnye: Balashov 18, Thomas 16, Simmons 10 and Miles 10.

Michelin Etha Engomis - KRKA Novo Mesto 59-74
KRKA Novo Mesto ended the last 16 hopes of Michelin Etha Engomi in the EuroChallenge as they kept their own very much alive with a 74-59 road win. KRKA was much stronger thant the visiting site who most probably will end up their European tour with a 0-6 record in the six games played in Europe this season. Edo Muric led the way with 19 points while Smiljan Pavic collected 16 and 10 rebounds in a contest that was as good as over by the end of the first quarter. Etha have struggled offensively all season and after they slipped into a 25-11 hole as early as the ninth minute of the contest, there never seemed like there would be a way back. It was a three-pointer from Pajic that gave KRKA that 14-point advantage, and it only continued to grow as the game went on. The lead reached 19 early in the third quarter when a three-pointer from Jakov Vladovic (187-PG-83) put the visitors up 53-34. Uros Lucic added 11 points for KRKA.
Donte Poole (190-G-89, college: Murray St.) led Etha with 13 points while Dejan Cup (202-PF-83) had 12 and Taron Downey (186-G-82, college: Wake Forest) added 11.

Nancy Sluc - Pizza Express Apollon 87-69
A total revenge for the French over the team of the newcomer Chris Chougaz took place in Nancy and in a packed stadium of 5.000 French fans crowding for their team.
The hosts used a huge first-half performance to take complete control of the game and won it at a canter. Although Apollon scored the opening five points of the game, that would be their only lead of the contest, Nancy coming to life with an 11-2 run capped by Shawn King's dunk, the first of two in quick succession from the big center.
That early deficit was a distant memory by the time they ended the first quarter up 25-15, and it only got worse for the visitors with back-to-back threes from Kenny Grant making it 34-15 two minutes into the second period.
When Grant split a pair of free throws to end the first half, the lead was 50-27. Nancy could afford to ease off thereafter as Apollon made minor inroads to the lead, with an 8-0 spurt cutting it to 52-40 on Brandon Brown's free throws before threes from Bingo Merriex and Nicholas Pope carried Nancy clear once more.
Grant led Nancy with 16 points while Merriex had 15, Marcellus Sommerville 12 and Souleymane Diabate 11.
Gerald Robinson (202-PF-84, agency: Court Side, college: Tenn-Martin) had 18 points for Apollon with Brown collecting 17, Marvin Jefferson (206-C-86, college: Idaho) and Grigoris Pantouris (190-G/F-82) 10 each
