Friday, May 26, at 8:30 pm, Roca Team, Monaco’s basketball team, will play Lyon-Villeurbanne at home for the third and final match of the quarterfinals playoffs.
The Roca boys were surprised at home by ASVEL (69-72) on Monday. On Wednesday night, the “red and whites” managed to find the resources to put the series back to a tie (1-1), winning (71-66), proving to be still very much in the game with high hopes for Friday’s match at Stade Louis II.
Wednesday’s top scorers were Dee Bost, with 16 points. Jamal Shuler, 14, and Zach Wright, 11.
In the other playoff action, after losing at home in game 1, the Strasburgers also reversed the trend by winning at Pau 83 to 68. They will face Monaco in the semifinals if successful in Match 3.
Team Roca are hoping to fill the stands with supporters on Friday night at the Salle Gaston Médecin. Tickets can be purchased online at Digitek and at the ticket booth. The match will be broadcast live tomorrow evening on SFR Sport 2.
