05.01.2010

Scavolini Pesaro stayed in the hunt for a first-place finish in Group C of the EuroChallenge with a 93-85 victory over BC "Minsk-2006".

Branko Cvetkovic had 21 points for the Italian club, which improved to 4-1 with the victory.

They will take on pool leaders Krasnye Krylia (5-0) next week, needing to win by more than 12 points to secure top spot.

Scavolini opened up a 54-45 lead by half-time but struggled to put the team from Belarus away.

Minsk clawed their way back, going on a 9-0 run to trail 71-70 late in the third quarter.

Marques Green answered with a three-ball and Cvetkovic made two free-throws to close the frame and give Pesaro a lead of six with 10 minutes to go.

Green hit another shot at the start of the fourth and Scavolini eased home to an eight-point win.

Minsk slumped to 1-4 with the defeat.
