A spirited fourth quarter comeback from Inkognito Fashion Kormend has not been enough to see them keep their EuroChallenge campaign alive, losing on the road to Group D rivals Gaz Metan Medias 77-72.

For the Hungarian club, Tuesday offered a last-ditch effort to keep their EuroChallenge campaign alive past next week, whilst victory for the hosts mean they are into the Last 16 with a game in hand.

The visitors dashed out to a 6-0 lead but the writing appeared on the wall soon after as Medias replied with a 17-2 run, helping them to a 10-point, 22-12 buffer by the end of the opening frame.

The buffer remained for the home team up until the final period when Kormend appeared to finally realise the urgency of the situation, reeling off the first 12 points of the quarter to be back within five, 64-59 with 5:07 to play.

Rares Mandache finally halted the scoring drought for the home team, hitting a two-point jump-shot to alleviate some pressure.

Remaining close throughout the final five minutes, Rolland Torok gave Kormend a sniff of an unlikely win, his three-pointer with 19 seconds to play cutting the gap to three, 75-72.

However, the cool-as-ice Kyle Shiloh froze the game from the charity stripe, making two-from-two to complete the game's scoring.

Shiloh was prominent throughout the game, ending with an 18-point, 11-rebound double-double.

Georgios Tsiaras provided 13 points and Radomir Marojevic 10.

Muhammad El-Amin led the visitors with 20 points.
