Bojan Bakic was the hero of the match for BK Ventspils after drilling the decisive three-pointer

BK Ventspils edged a 79-78 Group D thriller at Atomerömü SE on Tuesday to seal a spot in the next phase of the EuroChallenge.

In one of the most exciting games of the campaign, Lorenzo Williams' three-point play with 12 seconds to go gave the Hungarian side a 78-76 lead.

Bojan Bakic went to the other end for Ventspils, however, and drilled a three-pointer to lift the Latvian outfit to a narrow win.

Ventspils improved to 4-1 with the victory and clinched a spot in the Last 16.

Atomerömü, having suffered a 76-73 home setback to Khimik two weeks ago, suffered another frustrating defeat in front of their own fans.

Steven Gray poured in 26 points and Arturs Berzins 21.

Gundars Vetra's side won despite playing without leading scorer Jahmar Young, who has averaged 18 points per game this season.
