Maccabi Haifa brought the seven-game winning streak in the EuroChallenge of Group I winners Spartak Saint-Petersburg to an end on Tuesday by beating the Russians 92-86 in Israel.
There are still two Quarter-Final places up for grabs in the EuroChallenge heading into the final week of Last 16 action.
Barak Netanya scored the final seven points of the game to emerge from a tense finish with a 77-74 road win over Maccabi Haifa, their first win in EuroChallenge Group I.
Maybe Pinar Karsiyaka coach Hakan Demir was on to something when he spoke after last week's 86-80 defeat to Antwerp Giants in the EuroChallenge.
