Kloof propels Porto past Szolnok, Parma-Parimatch pick up important road win

MUNICH (Germany) - There was FIBA Europe Cup joy on Thursday for Parma-Parimatch and FC Porto as they were both victorious to conclude Gameday 4 action.

Parma-Parimatch joined Benfica at the top of Group C with a 3-1 record as they eased to an 83-62 success away at Opava, ending any hopes of the team from Czech Republic making it through to the Second Round.

Jeremiah Hill starred with 19 points and 7 assists along with 3 steals with Artem Zabelin and Nikolai Zhmako also in double figures with 12 and 11 points, respectively, in their roles off the bench.


The visitors made a strong start to establish an early double-digit advantage at 21-11 after 10 minutes and they continued to add to their lead on their way to claiming a first success on the road this season.

Later, Porto used a strong third quarter as a platform for their 76-68 home success over Szolnok to move into second spot in Group H. Charlon Kloof played a starring role with 27 points, 7 rebounds and 7 assists in the win, with Rashard Odomes adding 22 points.

The two teams had identical records going into the contest and were level at 40-40 at the half-time break before Porto broke clear in the third quarter. The visitors see their own qualification hopes dented, though three teams remain in a battle to join Legia Warszawa in advancing.

The Regular Season continues next week as Gameday 5 begins on Tuesday with two games including Porto being back in action.
