Marcus Eriksson scored 26 points by shooting 8/11 triples in 19:35 minutes, as Gran Canaria routed Valencia 111 – 92 in Round 25 of the Spanish ACB League regular season.

This win improved Gran Canaria to 9 – 16 and kept them above the league’s relegation zone. Valencia dropped fifth in the standings with 15 – 10. Bojan Dubljevic scored 14 for the losing side.

Thanks to Eriksson’s shooting festival and his team being impressive as a whole from beyond the arc (17/28), Gran Canaria reached the final quarter up by 24, 88 – 64 and went ahead 104-76 with five minutes to go. All that the “Taronja” could do down the stretch was cut that deficit below 20.

Oriol Pauli added 21 points and Jacob Wiley 19 and five rebounds for Gran Canaria. Sam Van Rossom contributed 11 points and six assists to Valencia.
