At the losing side the former international point guard Pedro Pinto (188-88) responded with 29 points and 4 assists.

Even 16 points, 9 rebounds and 4 assists by naturalized Cape Verdean guard Ivan Almeida (198-89, college: Stonehill, agency: Pro Partner Sports Management) did not help to save the game for Vitoria SC. Academica have a solid three-game winning streak. They moved-up to second place, which they share with Ovarense and CAB Madeira. Vitoria SC at the other side keeps the fifth position with four games lost. Academica will play against Fisica (#8) in Torres Vedras in the next round where they are favorite.
