Zadar's season ended on the second day of the Final 8 tournament in Torino. Poor start saw them go down by 13 points
by the end of the first quarter, then 32 : 47 at the start of the second half. They managed to mount a come-back and
tie things at 53 : 53 at the end of the third period.................
A very poor start by Zadar was a deciding factor in tonight's game. They fell back by 16 in the first quarter and let
Benetton run off to 33 : 14 early in the second period. The brief comeback attempt fell short at around 13 point deficit,
then it was quickly back to +18 for the hosts.
With tonight's victory at home over Turk Telekom, Zadar ensured a trip to the Final 8 tournament in Torino, regardless
of what happens in the last game against Benetton.
Zadar was again 2 points better in a game against Unics and now all they need is a victory at home against
Turk Telekom, and they will travel to the Final 8 tournament in Torino.
