Sitapha Savane - Gran Canaria Grupo DunasSitapha Savane, Roberto Guerra and Carl English scored 12 points apiece to help Gran Canaria Grupo Dunas beat BC Kalev/Cramo 80-75 in come-from-behind style on Tuesday night in Group G. Gran Canaria improved to 6-2, shares the group lead and is all but in the elimination rounds. Gran Canaria will have its ticket punched if KK Bosna beats Siauliai on Wednesday in a game that was postponed due to weather related complications. Meanwhile BC Kalev/Cramo dropped to 3-5 and its hopes of advancing have been significantly reduced. Gran Canaria was down 64-71 with five minutes left in the game, but using its accuracy from beyond the arc, was able to mount a successful comeback. English also dished 6 assists and Savane had 8 rebounds for Gran Canaria, while Kornel David added 9 points. Travis Reed had 24 points and 9 rebounds for BC Kalev/Cramo, Mateo Kedzo bagged 13 and Howard Frier 9.

Gran Canaria started at its best behind English and raced out to a 20-4 lead. But Reed scored 9 points in a row to help BC Kalev to get back to 22-13. David and Mario Fernandez fueled the hosts to make it 28-19 before Frier hit from long distance and fixed the score at 28-22 at the end of the first quarter. English gave again a double figure margin to Gran canaria, 32-22, early in the second quarter, but Kedzo and Reed scored the next 7 points to keep it close. The game continued with another run of the hosts to go to 45-32 on a short jumper of Marcus Norris, before Fernandez from the foul line made it 49-37 at halftime. The hosts seemed to be in control of the match, but Gregor Arbet cut the cap to 52-44 after four minutes. Jim Moran pushed Gran Canaria to be a 60-48 lead, however Kedzo and Reed fueled an amazing 2-19 run for the guests, bridging the last two quarters, to put BC Kalev ahead 62-67 after Bojan Pelkic scored a mid-range jumper early in the fourth quarter. Reed extended the difference to 64-71 at the midway point of the quarter, but pushed by the crowd, Roberto Guerra sounded the charge from downtown to excite his team. Norris copied him to tie the score at 71-71 and with less than three minutes left, again from beyond the arc, English gave a 76-73 advantage to Gran Canaria. Tanel Sokk and Guerra exchanged two-pointers and then Victor Baldo and Savane sealed the home team win from the foul line.
