A relatively comfortable first half turned into some challenging situations in the second, but Casademont Zaragoza held on and topped Falco Szombathely, 85-76, Wednesday.

Dylan Ennis in his fifth straight 13+ points Basketball Champions League showing shared a team-high 14 in the Regular Season Gameday 7 affair with Robin Benzing. Rasheed Sulaimon scored 13, Tryggvi Hlinason 12, and Javier Justiz added 12 more returning to action following a long injury layoff.

Sergio Hernandez’s side improved its Group D record to 3-0 and its overall Champions League home tally to 9-1.

The Hungarian outlet despite struggling from beyond the arc reacted after a tough first 20 minutes but failed to escape defeat for the seventh time in eight away BCL tilts. A 1-2 record paints the picture so far in the 2020-21 campaign.

Evan Bruinsma registered a game-high 21 points in the losing effort. Zoltan Perl finished with 17 points going over 14 for the fifth Champions League game in a row and pulled down ten rebounds.
