Casademont Zaragoza logged a convincing 90-71 win against ERA Nymburk and advanced to the Basketball Champions League Final Eight.

The Spaniards improved to a 4-1 record and due to the outcome of the duel between Brose Bamberg and Dinamo Sassari where the German prevailed, Nymburk has also clinched a spot in the Final Eight.

Jacob Wiley logged 22 points on 11-15 shooting and ten rebounds while Elias Harris scored 17 and Rasheed Sulaimon 15 points.

On the other side, Lukas Palyza had 17 and Hayden Dalton 14 points. Martin Kriz added ten points but also grabbed 13 boards.

The key difference in the duel has been the free throws as the Czech squad’s defense just couldn’t stop the fully focused Zaragoza which put on an impressive focus to score. The Spaniards shot a total of 29 free throws and made 24 while Nymburk went 10-15 from the line.
