A seventh straight win across the Basketball Champions League and Spain’s Liga Endesa for UCAM Murcia.

Adding to the streak, the Universitarios routed Igokea m:tel, 79-63, on Tuesday.

Czech import David Jelinek wrapped up the first period with a long buzzer-beater and connected 11 more points in the second quarter en route to a game-high 16 points. Swedish Ludvig Hakanson followed with 15 points plus six assists. Senegalese Moussa Diagne with nine points and 11 rebounds produced a game-high efficiency rating of 18.

Murcia was trailing by a margin of nine points in Laktasi Sports Hall, but twenty unanswered points between the first and second quarters built a double-digit advantage. The dominating display stretched into the second half shaping a 3-1 W-L tally in Group H of the Regular Season.

Adding to the 20-0 scoring run in the first half, Howard Sant-Roos passed Jeremy Leloup to sit second on the players with the most steals in the BCL. With a whopping six steals in the Gameday 4 affair, he upped his total to 95. JDA Dijon’s longtime leader David Holston is first with 108.

With a seventh consecutive loss in the Champions League, including four in the 2023-24 installment, the team coached by Vladimir Jovanovic seems to be heading to an early exit. A different picture compared to the 7-2 start in the AdmiralBet ABA League.

Nikola Tanaskovic drew a team-high 14 points. Jackie Carmichael, Nemanja Gordic, and Kosta Kondic were unavailable for the Bosnia-Herzegovina champions.
