In the sixth round of Eurocup Last 32 Cedevita lost at home to Krasny Oktyabr 92:101. Cedevita finished Group I in the second place and it will face Herbalife Gran Canaria in Eurocup Eightfinals.
Nemanja Gordić led Cedevita with 17 points and four assists. Marko Arapovic totaled 14 points with 6 rebounds and Randy Culpepper scored 30 points for the winners.
Jasmin Repeša (head coach of Cedevita): “I would like to congratulate to my players for qualifying for the Eurocup Eighthfinals. We didn’t play our best basketball today and the start of the game was crucial. We managed to get ourselves back in the game with a zone defense, but after few minutes they adapted their game. Krasny Oktyabr deserved this win and you can’t expect to win when your opponent scores 100 points on your home court.”
Dirk Bauermann (head coach of Krasny Oktyabr): “It is always good to win. Especially when you play against such a good team. They have a great coach and I have nothing but the highest respect for Jasmin Repesa. He is doing a great job with this team. Our chances for passing to the next round were zero and Cedevita had already qualified for the Eurocup Eighthfinals. These kinds of games are always weird. We are happy to win. We played the right way and beat a good team.”
