Rok Stipcevic had one of his top games ever, scoring a EuroCup career-high 31 points, grabbing five rebounds, dishing out four assists and stealing the ball thrice for 41 PIR (also career-best in EuroCup), as Rytas Vilnius beat Fiat Turin 101 – 96 on the road in overtime.

Turin had 16-point deficit early in the third period and was down by 10, 66 – 76 with six minutes to go but managed to force the extra period with two free throws by Tony Carr with four seconds left.

In overtime, the visiting squad got a five lead with 17 seconds remaining and reached a win that might punch them a Top 16 ticket if Mornar Bar loses to Fraport Skyliners. Turin is already eliminated.

Dallas Moore had 26 points for Turin.
