Girona And Estu Fall In The ACB

Akasvayu Girona and Estudiantes both suffered post-EuroCup hangovers on Wednesday night as they slumped to away defeats in the ACB, going down to Real Madrid and Gran Canaria Grupo Dunas respectively.

Bologna Leave Spain With A Good Feeling, Estu Look To Rebound

Virtus Bologna captain Fabio Di Bella believes his team claimed a very important victory on Sunday after clinching third place in the EuroCup Final Four with a 80-62 triumph over Estudiantes.

The Italians lost a heartbreaker to Azovmash in the semi-final on Friday but hit back in style and will now attempt to secure their place in the Lega A play-offs.
