Asvel Basket made it to the ULEB Cup elimination rounds on Tuesday night thanks to a Group G home win against ASCO Slask Wroclaw by 84-72. The win improves Asvel's record to 6-3, making it imposisble for the French team to be worse than fifth at the end of the regular season. On the other hand, Slask dropped to 4-5 but still has options to fight for a second round berth. Robert Conly and Lamayne Wilson had 22 points apiece to lead Asvel Basket to the win. Uchenna Nsomwu added 13. For Slask, Torrell Martin had 23 points with 4 of 5 triples and Dawan Robinson added 15.

Asvel's defense was the big protagonist in the first quarter. The hosts shut the Slask offense completely and soon the score was 15-7 after Yohann Sangare's triple, which became 17-9 after 10 minutes. Things were different however in the second period. A 0-7 burst by Slask capped by Dawan Robinson's three-point play allowed the guests to pull within 20-18 and later Oliver Stevic tied the game at 22-22. Four straight points by Robert Conley kept Asvel going but two straight threes by Torrell Martin allowed Slask to stay at one point, 34-33 and finally Rashid Atkins scored to tie the game again, 35-35, at the break. BUt the third quarter arrived and with it, a new storm by Asvel who blasted the guests with a 12-4 run to quickly climb to a 47-39 edge. Slask reacted with a few playes, but the offensive accuracy of the hosts was unstoppable as four triple fell in key moments, the last one by Laurent Foirest to close the third period at 67-49. The last period started with 4 straight points by Atkins and Slask seemed to recover, but Asvel played to maintain the double-digit lead on the scoreboard, and succeeded as Conley and Lamayne Wilson appeared with key threes that stopped Slask's progression. Martin was still trying to put Slask back into the game in the last minute but that was all he could do as Asvel escaped with the win.
