Bulgaria’s Lukoil Avoid Bottom Place Finish in Eurocup
Bulgaria’s basketball champions Lukoil Akademik defeated Romania’s Asesoft Ploiesti 92:77 in their last game of this season’s Eurocup.
The win means Lukoil will not finish bottom of the group, but they will also not play in the next round, after earning 4 wins in 10 games.
Despite being drawn in a fairly easy group, the Bulgarians were inconsistent in their performance over the tournament, and even changed coaches in between.
Once again, Alando Tucker was the leading scorer for Lukoil, this time with 30 points.
Wednesday’s match between Khimki Moscow and Igokea will decide if Lukoil finish in 4th or 5th position. The top 3 teams progress to the next round.
