Using another fantastic offensive display, PGE Turow Zgorzelec secured a first place in Group L with 104-93 victory over Lietuvos Rytas Vilnius. It’s fourth consecutive win for Turow which improved it to 4-1, while Rytas drops to 2-3 and will fight for the second place in the group with Telenet Ostend next week. Turow, which shot 13-for-31 from three-point land, took the lead for good with a strong finish of the first half before finishing the third quarter with a 21-4 spurt that broke the game wide open. Damian Kulig led Turow with 27 points, 8 rebounds and 4 steals, while Mardy Collins had 21 points, 7 rebounds, 6 assist and 4. Michal Chylinski, Vlad Moldoveanu and Tony Taylor each scored 13 points in victory. Martynas Gecevicius scored most of his 6 three-point shots in the fourth quarter, finishing with 22 points for Rytas. Mindaugas Lukauskis scored 15, and Antanas Kavaliauskas 12 points for the visitors who hit 7 of their 12 three-pointers in the fourth quarter.

Chylinski opened the game with 8 straight points, including a triple-plus-free throw for 8-5. Gecevicius hit from downtown, before Kavaliauskas scored a pair of baskets for Rytas. A fastbreak layup from Gecevicius made it 12-18, but Kulig hit a triple, while Collins, Tony Taylor and Chris Wright all scored from close range to make it 25-25 at the end of the first quarter. Leslie Travis and Zygimantas Janavicius kept Rytas in front early in the second quarter, but Filip Dylewicz scored 6 points, including a three-pointer for 38-35. Teams briefly traded leads, before Moldoveanu hit a three, and followed it with 4-for-4 from the foul line to help Turow to 49-43 halftime lead.

"Congratulations to my players , team and the Club. We achieved something that is pretty usual to Polish teams, we reached the [eighthfinals]. We still haven’t said the last word and we will attempt to surprise."
SESKUS, VIRGINIJUS
Lietuvos Rytas Vilnius
"Today we lost the game because we didn’t fight on the boards. We defended poorly. Our main strategy is three-point shooting and today we were able to make them in the fourth quarter, which caused our failure. Adas Juskiewicz: Our poor third quarter was the key factor to our loss. The defense was very poor and so was the offense in that part of the game and we couldn’t fight it."
