SLOW START IN GAME 1 OF SEMI-FINALS AGAINST ORADEA BUT EXCITING W

Though the match-up with the current LNBM champion Oradea was highly anticipated and prepared for, U-BT Cluj Napoca stumbled into the game being down by as much as 10 after the first three quarters under dominating play by the opponents. Both coaches definitely played a game of chess, which would be, in the end, won by Coach Silvasan of U Cluj.

Moldoveanu, Rasic and Barro sparked a furious comeback within the opening minutes of the fourth quarter to nullify Oradea’s previous advantage while the rest of the team pulled together for a 77 – 69 lead with 4 minutes of play left. Cluj went on to win the game 86 – 73 but will certainly have a lot of tape to watch if they want to strengthen their approach and go up 2 – 0.

Vlad Moldoveanu was pivotal to the success, leading the squad in scoring (tied with Aleksandar Rasic) with 16 points including 2 of 2 from beyond the arc, 6 rebounds and 2 assists. U-BT will now look to use this momentum going into game 2 which will also take place in “Horia Demian” Sports Hall in Cluj, on the 4th of May.
