European Competitions: Baltic clubs go 0-4

The Triobet BBL week of basketball is still in play, with one more game tomorrow, so let’s take the time out to catch up what’s been going on in other European competitions our clubs are participating in. presents you the weekly round-up of European Competitions.


7DAYS EuroCup

The final round of the EuroCup 7Days Regular Season ended in another loss for Lietkabelis, as they were shooting blanks against Herbalife Gran Canaria. The 73-92 final score could have been much different if it weren’t for a horrendous third quarter. Halfway through the game, it was still just a 2-point game, but the Spaniards turned on a higher gear after the break and left Lietkabelis behind.

VTB United League

Kalev/Cramo suffered their fourth consecutive loss, as they were forced to a 90-99 loss against Enisey. The Estonians really missed any sort of bench production, as the starters accounted for 80 of their points. They seemed to just have run out of steam in the final quarter and that was their sixth win in eight contests.

Basketball Champions League

One of Juventus’ biggest losses of the season came at the hands of SIG Strasbourg, as the Lithuanians were blown out of the water and suffered a 61-86 defeat in Rhenus Sport Arena. The team crumbled in the second quarter, as a 1-point spread quickly skyrocketed to 18 in just ten minutes. The visitors weren’t helped by horrendous shooting from beyond the arc, as they made merely 12 percent of their long-range shots.

Ventspils didn’t have too much luck either, as they were defeated by German club EWE Baskets. The final score signaled a 14-point 73-87 victory for the Oldenburg side, as they amassed their lead mostly in the first quarter, winning it by double digits, 26-13.

Juventus and Ventspils now stand at records of 5-3 and 3-5, respectively.
