Legia Warszawa complete Quarter-Finals field with impressive road win

MUNICH (Germany) - Legia Warszawa clinched the last remaining place in the FIBA Europe Cup Quarter-Finals as they knocked out Parma-Parimatch in a decisive encounter in Perm, Russia on Tuesday.

The Polish side join Avtodor Saratov, Bahcesehir College, CSM CSU Oradea, HAKRO Merlins Crailsheim, Sporting CP, Unahotels Reggio Emilia and ZZ Leiden in the last-eight phase.

Legia held off a fightback from Parma - who had finished fourth in last season's competition - as Robert Johnson led the way with a 30-point haul in their 78-67 triumph.

The visitors used an 11-0 run to take control in the first quarter, leading by eight points at half-time before Parma mounted their revival. They put together a 17-4 spell to take the lead inside the final quarter only for Legia to respond with a clinical display down the stretch.

Meanwhile, Reggio Emilia had wrapped up their Quarter-Finals spot last Friday with a 79-70 victory over Crailsheim as Andrea Cinciarini contributed 11 points, 9 rebounds and 13 assists in a near triple-double effort.

Avtodor Saratov defeated Bakken Bears 102-79 to clinch top spot in Group L on Monday, while Oradea and Sporting meet on Friday to decide first place in Group K in the final game of the Second Round.
