The guests trailed by 5 points after three quarters before their 21-14 charge, which allowed them to win the game. 24 personal fouls committed by Xhebrailat helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities. American guard Justin Black (188-92, college: Morgan St., agency: Octagon Europe) scored 25 points and 7 rebounds to lead the charge for the winners and Montenegrin Marko Popovic (200-85) chipped in 10 points and 6 rebounds during the contest.
