Tofas Bursa prevailed over Joventut Badalona with a 91-76 victory in Round 4 of 7DAYS EuroCup’s Top 16. The Turkish side currently tops Group H with a 3-1 record.

Devin Williams helped the home team reach this victory, posting 20 and 9 rebounds across his 18-minute presence on the court. Rion Brown also tapped 20 points, along with three rebounds and two assists.

Nenad Dimitrijevic and Luke Harangody had team-high performances for the Spanish side, exiting the court with 15 points apiece.

Tofas’ outbreak in the second period (29-13) set the foundations for a spectacular game in the first half, as they led 46-28 at halftime. The deficit remained in double digits throughout the second period, with the home team ahead 68-50 after 30 minutes.

Joventut made a small run at the beginning of the fourth, trimming the score to 77-63, though Williams made sure the hosts would eventually seal the victory with his performance in the fourth quarter.

The Spanish team now falls to a 2-2 record and will hope to bounce back next week.
