With second consecutive win, Radnicki improved to 2-1 in Group H, grabbing at least a share of second place, while Spartak dropped its second consecutive game, and now holds 1-2 record.

Spurt included more triples from Lesic and Kalinic, before Yarou scored inside on the opening possession of the second quarter for 28-15. Lesic and Yarou kept Radnicki with a double-digit lead, but Steven Burtt nailed a three-pointer for Spartak, and together with Koshcheev combined to score 11 points and come within 34-28. But Yarou, Kalinic and a triple from Dusan Mladjan pushed the margin back into double figures, and the hosts held 45-33 halftime lead. Burtt scored 7 more points at the start of the second half, but a triple and a jumper from Mladjan helped keep Radnicki ahead, 56-44. Burtt added a triple, before Homan and Yakovenko cut it to 63-56. However, Lesic nailed a triple for the hosts to enter the final quarter up by 10, then scored from downtown in the fourth for 75-58.

Head Coaches

Radnicki Kragujevac
"First, I have to commend the atmosphere that Kragujevac made tonight. I really see that people like Radnicki. We distributed playing time because we have to play twice a week. We've prepared the game good. We could be better in our inside game, but congratulations to these guys, they performed hard game tonight. I have no complaints, we have been willing to attack, I think that the players are in good shape. It is visible that we work well, in a positive atmosphere."
VETRA, GUNDARS
Spartak Saint Petersburg
"Radnicki played very good tonight. The first and the last, as Burtt said, they made a lot of shots. Not all, but most of them was easy. That wasn't good side of our game. Of course, when you allow 97 shots, it's hard to win the game. Most of our players are not ready for this level of competition, specially away games with preasure from great spectators, like in Kragujevac. There is no excuse for this score, 97 points."

"We played very well from the beginning, as a real team. We had number of assists, we played well on defense, and the ball ran like coach demands. Everyone is given his maximum and I think this is a great victory in Eurocup. All the players and the entire coaching staff deserved it."
BURTT, STEVEN
Spartak Saint Petersburg
"They made a lot of shots. It's hard to beat anybody in gym like this when they made a lot of shots. We've missed too many shots."
