Milos Teodosic scored 13 out of his season-high 24 points in the fourth period, including the game-winner with less than a second remaining, and dished out seven assists as Virtus Bologna beat AS Monaco 77 – 75 at home for Round 5 of the EuroCup regular season.
After Alessandro Pajola sent the inbounds pass to Teodosic, the Serbian guard pulled off a tough turnaround jumper while winning the foul to cap a comeback from 11 points down (53 – 64). He intentionally missed the free throw as the final horn sounded with Bologna getting the win that improved its Group A record to 4-1. Monaco dropped to 3-2.
