Bergen suffered a second European defeat in a row in the FIBA Europe Cup and with Portuguese champions Sporting CP from Lisbon. The Henegouwers are in group F and also with Antwerp Giants and the Greek Ionikos.
Bergen suffered on the second day of the FIBA Europe Cup in group F and after a 32-39 bonus halfway through a 75-65 defeat at the Portuguese champion CP Sporting from Lisbon. The Hainaut’s second consecutive loss. Patton (22 points) and Williams (20 points, 11 rebounds) were the producers of the remonte at Sporting CP and the lead after three quarters (57-55). In the final quarter, Bergen fell silent and the Portuguese pushed through to a win. A bad thing for the team of Vedran Bosnic towards qualifying for the second round (Last 16).
