A strong second half from Serb and Montenegrin club NIS Vojvodina was enough for them to defeat SLUC Nancy 103:81 and move into 2nd place in Group D of the FIBA Europe League.
Homegrown star Milan Gurovic was named MVP of the game for his 21-point performance. He was ably assisted by Nenad Canak who added 20.
