Fenerbahce has already secured the top spot in its group standings and Cedevita had a bigger motive last night. The end results was a 89-59 win for the hosts, which at this point doesn’t change much in the big picture.
The winners with a 3-9 record can’t hope for a place in the playoffs, but this game will be remembered. In the first game wihtout injured Jan Vesely, Kostas Sloukas still missing and Pero Antic coming fron an injury, Ekpe Udoh was the only players of the guests who scored in double digits with just 11 points.
Cedevita started strong from the get go with a 22-13 lead after the first period, led with 44-30 at half time, build a 28 points advantage 71-43 after 30 minutes of action and didn’t have any problem to finish the job.
Fenerbache shot just 4/23 threes (17%), Cedevita had a 39-29 advantage in the rebounds and 10 against 5 steals. Youngster Marko Arapovic finished the game with 18 points, Miro Bilan added 15 making 2/2 threes despite being the starting center of Cedevita, while James White (11 p.) and Jacob Pullen (10 p.) also scored in double digits.
