Alba Fehervar shock Demir Insaat with comeback win in Group J

MUNICH (FIBA Europe Cup) - Alba Fehervar erased a 20-point deficit against Demir Insaat with an excellent second-half performance to register their first win in the Second Round with a 74-72 triumph over their Group J rivals on Tuesday evening.

Turning Point: After trailing big in the first half, the Szekesfehervar side reeled in their opponents closer after the break with an improved defensive effort. Kasey Hill completed the fightback with back-to-back three-pointers in the fourth quarter, giving Alba Fehervar the upper hand and the momentum that they successfully kept until the final buzzer.

Game Hero: Not only did Hill drain two of the biggest shots of the game, but also finished the game with a double-double of 13 points and 10 assists to go along 5 rebounds and 5 steals.

Stats Don't Lie: After allowing the visitors to score 46 points in the first half of play, Alba Fehervar buckled down defensively after the interval and outscored the Buyukcekmece side 41-26 in the third and fourth periods.

Bottom Line: After losing in overtime in Lithuania in their last game of 2017, Alba Fehervar started 2018 with a much better mood, as they snapped Demir Insaat's five-game winning streak in the FIBA Europe Cup.
