AS Monaco made club history on Friday after sweeping Herbalife Gran Canaria 76-74 in Game 2 of the semifinals, to clinch its first 7DAYS EuroCup Finals ticket! Just as GranCa had recovered and evened the score at 74 points with six seconds to go, Rob Gray came in with the game-winner for the French and the historic qualification.

GranCa recovered from a 45-35 deficit in the first half, though couldn’t complete its comeback to defend its homecourt in the end. Stanley Okoye led the hosts with 15 points, Aleksander Balcerowski posted 12 points and Matthew Costello had 11 points and 9 rebounds.
