Lenovo Tenerife took down VEF Riga, 77-64, on the road Wednesday.

Tyler Cavanaugh logged a team-high 18 points in the Basketball Champions League Round of 16 Gameday 5 match. Aaron Doornekamp chipped in 14 points.

Txus Vidorreta’s side jumped to 4-1 in Group J despite missing Giorgi Shermadini at Arena Riga. The Georgian center is facing a minor ankle injury.

A double-digit advantage nearly evaporating in the third quarter was met with an 18-7 sprint confirming the winner.

A potential win for Hereda San Pablo Burgos over Igokea at home tomorrow, Thursday, will clinch a Final 8 berth for both Spanish clubs.

The out-of-contention hosts guided by Janis Gailitis were forced to 0-5. Michale Kyser’s 24 points and nine rebounds were not enough.
