Siauliai Win But Come Up Short

BC Siauliai saw their hopes of progressing from EuroChallenge Group D dashed on Tuesday night despite a dramatic 82-80 win over group leaders EiffelTowers.

An 85-77 victory for Proteas EKA AEL over Allianz Swans in the night's late game saw Siauliai relegated to third place in a group despite them sharing a 4-2 record with Proteas and EiffelTowers.

Siauliai Ease Past Allianz Swans To Stay Alive
BC Siauliai kept alive their slim hopes of a second-place finish in Group D of the EuroChallenge with a 78-68 triumph over Allianz Swans Gmunden.

The Lithuanian team improved to 3-2 and at least temporarily climbed above Proteas EKA AEL, who were to take on pool leaders EiffelTowers Den Bosch later Tuesday.
