BAXI Manresa mostly trailed up to the last quarter, but eventually beat Turk Telekom, 80-75, at the Pavello Nou Congost on Wednesday.

Ryan Toolson sank a clutch three-pointer with 55 seconds to go, before Frankie Ferrari sealed the “W” with a couple of free throws. Both players ended up with 19 points in the exciting Basketball Champions League contest.

Burak Goren’s team is no longer undefeated in Group A despite maintaining a slim lead for the larger part of the tilt. The first blow came in the form of a 13-3 run late in the third quarter and the knockout punch was the hosts’ 11-4 finish.

Muhammed Baygul, 27, went for 20 points with 5/11 from the field before fouling out with 41 seconds left in the Regular Season Gameday 4 match. R.J. Hunter put up 15 points and Moustapha Fall 13 in losing effort.

Both teams now sit on a 3-1 BCL W-L tally.
