KRKA Hang On To Win


KK KRKA held off a late rally from Telekom Baskets as they ended their Group E campaign with another win, 70-65.

Having already assured their progress, KRKA looked to be cruising to their fifth win of the group stage until Telekom found some late inspiration.

The visitors had been down 67-53 after Goran Ikonic's lay-up with six minutes to go, but Mark Tyndale's basket began a 10-2 run that brought the scores to 69-63 with only 1:20 to go.

Jure Balazic tacked on a point for KRKA from the charity stripe, but Sajmen Hauer responded with a jump-shot to close the gap to five.

Balazic missed a jump-shot to put the ball back in Telekom hands, but Hauer missed a three-pointer and time ran out on the rally.

Ikonic led KRKA with 15 points while Balazic added 13, Christopher Booker 12 and Zoran Dragic 10.

Tyndale's 16 points were in vain for Telekom.
