Benetton Basket Bwin secured back to back blowouts of short-handed Apoel to march into the Eurocup regular season on a high after romping to an 84-63 success in Treviso.
The result was never in doubt after the young guns in the home side carried on where they left off in the first game in Cyprus.
Benetton Basket Bwin demolished Apoel 97-55 in the first leg of the Eurocup Qualifier on Tuesday in Cyprus.
The home side held on for 15 minutes, but then Benetton simply blew Apoel away, practically guaranteeing the Italians a place in the Eurocup.
One of the hard parts of being a professional basketball player is switching gears. Players must change their focus from the national teams to club sides. It's not easy for Serbians like Stefan Markovic, who came within a whisker of reaching the Final of the FIBA World Championship in Turkey, only to lose in the last second to the host nation.
