Valencia Basket Club laid to rest their nightmare night in Belgium last week with a 79-61 home victory over Dexia Mons-Hainaut to reach the Eurocup.
Needing to win the second leg of the Qualifying Round tie by 16 points after crashing to a 78-63 defeat in the opener, Valencia led 73-58 at the end of regulation.
Valencia Basketball Club are supposed to win with style and challenge for titles.
On Tuesday night, they failed miserably in the style department and put in grave danger their chances of playing in the Eurocup, never mind competing for the championship.
Valencia Basket Club play in the celebrated Spanish ACB but Dexia Mons-Hainaut weren't in awe when the two sides met in Belgium on Tuesday night in the first game of their Eurocup Qualifying Round showdown.
Kelvin Torbert drilled all five of his shots from long range and scored a game-high 25 points for Dexia, who won 78-63.
Valencia Basket Club are expecting a quite a battle when they run onto the floor later today at Dexia Mons-Hainaut in the first leg of their EuroCup Qualifying Round tie.
Neven Spahija, whose team won 79-63 over Valladolid at the weekend, said: "Dexia is a team with lots of Americans and who play very well at home.
