Khimik proved on Tuesday there is no such thing as an insurmountable deficit by coming back from 22-point first-leg defeat to shock KK Igokea Partizan and advance to the EuroCup Qualifying Round.
Seemingly destroyed 102-80 last week in Bosnia-Herzegovina, Khimik claimed a 99-69 home victory and they were spurred on by Sasa Bratic's game-high 24 points.
|Goran Cakic had 14 points for Khimik in their improbable win.|
KK Igokea Partizan lost the tie in the first quarter.
They trailed 32-14 at the end of the opening quarter and the Ukraine outfit stretched the lead to 49-27 by half-time to leave the showdown level on aggregate.
Khimik then extended their advantage in the game by 10 points by game's end.
The hosts won the rebounding battle 38-24 and they also buried eight of 18 (44.4%) from behind the arc.
The winners were also impressive at the line, cashing in on 25 of their 30 attempts (83.3%) with Partizan a very respective 18 of 22 (81.8%) themselves.
