Telenet Giants Antwerp were up by 15 points after the first game (83-68) against Nizhny Novgorod and have added to it a 66-61 home win for a total aggregate score of 149-129 securing Basketball Champions League Final Four spot.

Jae’Sean Tate scored 11 points for the victors followed by Hans Vanwijn’s ten points while Paris Lee added nine points – all of it in the first half.

Nizhny took a big blow as they had to play without Kendrick Perry and Ian Hummer. In their absence, Vladimir Dragicevic banked a double-double with 16 points and ten boards in addition to Anton Astapkovich’s  12 points.

Antwerp continued where they left off and were in the lead throughout all forty minutes. They were ahead 19-12 after the first quarter and went on the halftime rest with a double-digit lead (41-29) led by Tyler Kalinoski and Lee’s nine points each. They kept their distance and weakened Nizhny Novogord couldn’t do much to change anything.
