Tyler Cain was too dominate as Varese beat Cantu on the road.

By Eurohoops team/ info@eurohoops.net

After knocking down Olimpia Milano last week Varese delivered another victory. This week they prevailed over Red October Cantu on the road 89-85.

In a high-paced game, it was the visitors who were the better team. Varese was in the charge right from the start as they pulled out big guns in the first half.

They hit 8 out of 13 three-point shots in the first 20 minutes of action. They were up by 56-51 after the first part of the game and they hold onto that lead until the end.

Tyler Cain was dominating the boards tonight as he recorded an amazing double-double. He had 13 points and 18 rebounds which was enough for 32 in PIR.

Jaime Smith had 18 points for Cantu, but that didn’t cut it.

With this win, Varese improved to a 7-11 record while Cantu falls a 9-9.

On Sunday Armani completely demolished Capo d’Orlando.
