Movistar Estudiantes recorded its fifth win this season as they beat Rosa Radom on the road 84 – 77 in a fun-to-watch game. The Polish remain with just one win in Group C.

Both teams combined for 17 three-pointers in the first half to make it a high scoring game. Rosa Radom was leading by two points after 20 minutes played (49 – 51).

Alec Brown and Sylven Landesberg couldn’t miss in the third quarter. Thanks to a 13 – o run Estudiantes built a 67 – 57 lead (28′) but the hosts come back with five minutes left (74 – 75). Despite the comeback, Landesberg decided the game in the final plays.

Kevin Punter led the Polish in scoring with 18 points while Patrick Auda added 15.

The key: After receiving 51 points in the first half, Estudiantes allowed just 26 in the second. Rosa Radom didn’t score a single three-pointer after the break.

The star: Landesberg paced the winners with 26 points. Brown also contributed to the victory with 18 points and 7 boards.
