Another game another W for U Banca Transilvania Cluj Napoca as they meet KB Peja in the 4th round of the FIBA Europe Cup group stage.
Freshly hyped after the huge win against CSM Steaua Eximbank in the Romanian LNBM league, U-BT stayed hungry and obliterated opponents KB Peja in their own gym with a 99 to 76 rout. There was no doubt as to whom the winner would be even after the first quarter, but the team from Kosovo did make a run in the fourth quarter to try and limit the scoring winning the Q 26 – 24.
Vlad claims yet another MVP worthy appearance as he finished up with 25 points on a ridiculous 90% FG and equally outstanding 5 of 5 from beyond the arc. He added 7 rebounds and two assists, for an impressive rating of 32 in the efficiency department. This is definitely a great year so far for the young Romanian forward and he may very well end up breaking some records if he keeps it up all the way through.
Vlad and U-BT Cluj Napoca will now be looking towards the match where they host Gaziantep on the 16th of November.
