A late surge by KK Zagreb proved decisive as they slayed the Artland Dragons to secure their Quarter-Final berth after coming back from an 8 point deficit with less than four minutes to play to claim a nail-biting 69-67 victory.
The result in Croatia was to leave Artland Dragons heartbroken as the German club crashed out of the competition after being edged out by their hosts and FMP romping to a big win over Belgacom Liege to secure the all important second spot.
Well this is it.
As I write this I'm on my way to Zagreb for the biggest game we have played all year in the EuroChallenge against KK Zagreb.
One more game to go in the Last 16 phase of the EuroChallenge, and the stage is set for the last fight for a Quarter-Final berth.
While one group is already decided, three will fight till the very last second, and some teams will also rush to check on fibaeurope.com what happened in the parallel game to know their fate.
Artland Dragons set up a potentially mouth-watering winner-takes-all tie next week against KK Zagreb after securing an important and hard -fought 100-92 road win at Belgacom Liege in Group J.
The game still hung in the balance heading into the final quarter with the scpre tied at 74-74 but Artland finished strongly to secure victory and grab an opportunity to book their place in the Quarter-Finals with success in the last game.
