Slask Boost Qualification Hopes

Slask Wroclaw boosted their hopes of a place in the next phase of the EuroCup while dashing those of winless MPC Capitals with a 79-69 triumph over the Dutch in Groningen.

The Poles were in a dogfight at half-time with the score tied at 37-37, but after the intermission it seemed as if the lid was on the basket for the hosts, who simply could not score.
