but visitor Korihait (Uusikaupunki) won the other three quarters and came back to the game. The very last minutes there were several lead changes, time outs,
but Korihait succeeded by Darius Glover (196-G/F) and Glenn Stokes (170-G-76, college: American) during the last 1:31 minutes, and Korihait won 79-84.
