Tuborg Pilsener put the bitterness of their semi-final loss in the FIBA Europe Cup Men behind them with an emphatic victory over Russian side Dynamo Moscow to finish the competition in 3rd place.
5 Tuborg players scored in double figures in what proved to be an offensive onslaught that the Russians simply could not handle.
Unlike the Conference Final in Izmir 4 weeks ago, there were no last second heroics from Tuborg this evening as SAOS JDA Dijon advanced to the Pan-European Final following an end-of-game gamble from the home club which didn’t pay off.
The FIBA Europe Cup reaches its climax this weekend in Izmir, Turkey as Dynamo Moscow Region (RUS), Mitteldeutscher BC (GER), JDA Dijon (FRA) and home side Tuborg Izmir (TUR) will all battle for the trophy.
The competition began with all participating clubs split into 4 conferences, North, West, Central and South. After the preliminary round and play-offs, final fours were held in each conference. Dynamo were champions in Conference North, Mitteldeutscher in the Central, Dijon in West and Tuborg in South.
Conference play has now finished in the FIBA Europe Cup Men and the line-ups for the Pan European final four is complete.
