After getting the crushing 89-64 win at home, Rytas Vilnius got another victory against Peristeri, beating the Greek side 82-71 on the road.

The Lithuanian team had a good contribution from both Marcus Foster and Elvar Fridriksson, who shared the backcourt and scored 12 points a piece.

Martynas Echodas went close to a double-double with 9 points and 9 rebounds off the bench, while Jarvis Williams had 13 points shooting 6/8 inside the area.

Sylvain Francisco, who has now scored 16+ points in every BCL game so far with Peristeri, was once again the best player on Vassilis Spanoulis’ team, as he ended the game with 19 points and 3 assists, but he struggled shooting (5/13 FG, 2/10 3PTS).

Aleksa Radanov followed with 15 points and 4 rebounds. On his first Basketball Champions League game with the new team, Dimitrios Agravanis added 7 points.

Just like in the previous three matchups between Peristeri and Rytas Vilnius, the team leading at the end of the first quarter (Rytas by 14 points) won the game.

The away side, which dominated by grabbing rebounds (45 vs 31) and in second-chance points (23 vs 11), had a great third quarter 26-15 run to seal the deal.

With this victory, Rytas Vilnius jumps now to second place in Group H with a 2-2 record. Lenovo Tenerife is still on top after crushing Bnei Herzliya 83-63.
