Galil Elyon crushed Gravlines in the Eurocup, whereas Nahariya lost in Nymburk. Challenge Cup: Ashkelon lost in Romania.
Galil Elyon 98 - Gravlines 80
Very nice offensive game by Galil, with good debuts by Nsonwu-Amadi and Mandic led Galil to their first win this season. Avishay Gordon navigated with great passes, Eliyahu and Bratic executed and Straight gave the finishing touch en route to a big win.
Eliyahu had 26 points, Bratic 22, Straight 18, Nsonwu-Amadi 16 and Mandic 7.
Nymburk 93 - Nahariya 86
Ben-David and Milisveljevic led Nahariya to an early 12-point lead, but Charles Mandic (5-6 beyond the arch) led the Czech champions to a big run in both sides of the intermission. Carr had 18, Milisevljevic 17, Peleg 14. Only 8 points for Wells, who shot 33% from the floor.
Cluj 78 - Ashkelon 74
Disappointing loss for Ashkelon in their first ever road game in Europe. Ashkelon shot only 7 of 28 from beyond the arch. Vladi Ermichin had a terrific game with 18 points and 10 boards.
Boxscores later tonight and tomorrow.
Nice debut for Galil's Nigerian big man
