JDA Dijon ended their unsuccessful EuroCup Group L campaign on a high note by making a stirring fourth-quarter recovery to defeat BC Kalev in a dead rubber on Tuesday night.
With both teams out of the running for qualification, only pride was at stake at the Palais des Sport Jean-Michel Geoffroy.
Virtus Bologna staged a brilliant late fightback to down BC Kalev 85-82 on Wednesday and book their spot in the quarter-finals of the EuroCup.
Virtus looked to be suffering a hangover from their heart-breaking late defeat to Benetton Treviso in the Coppa Italia final at the weekend, as they trailed for much of the match in Estonia.
Last week Akasvayu Girona did the job early.
This week they left it late but the result was the same.
Akasvayu Girona are on a role, both in the EuroCup and the ACB, but head coach Svetislav Pesic is still cautious about his team’s match-up against BC Kalev in Estonia this evening.
The Spanish giants are yet to lose in the EuroCup, while Kalev are winless in the second round.
