By Eurohoops Team/

Buducnost VOLI in control down the stretch defeated ratiopharm Ulm, 77-73, Tuesday. The away win clinched a spot in the 7DAYS EuroCup Top 16.

Melvin Ejim fired in 20 points and eight rebounds. Nikola Ivanovic added 19 more points in the Regular Season Round 9 away game. Justin Cobbs logged in 11 points and five assists.

Just a couple of days after extending the perfect start to the ABA League season with a win on the road over Crvena Zvezda mts, the visitors fell into an early 12-point hole but recovered to improve to 5-3 in Group B. Long-range shooting, 11/20 for the night, was key.

Dylan Osetkowski went for 17 points, five rebounds, and four assists, but was not enough for the “W”. His side fell to 3-6 but remains in the hunt for a Top 16 berth.
