By Eurohoops Team/

The Bakken Bears completed an extremely impressive Basketball Champions League campaign with another solid performance producing the win, 96-78, over Iberostar Tenerife.

Deshawn Stephens and Darko Jukic led the way in Wednesday’s Regular Season Gameday 11 contest with 20 points apiece. QJ Peterson closed out his tremendous BCL season with 18 points, eight assists, and five rebounds.

Txus Vidorreta’s side opted to rest several key players having booked a playoffs ticket prior to the game held at the Aarhus Arena. Fran Guerra at 15 points, seven rebounds, and three assists highlighted the effort at Denmark.

The hosts improved to 3-3 but the third win in a row failed to clinch a spot in the next round. Tenerife finished Group A at 4-2.
