DISAPPOINTING

Juventus Utena broke out in Group L of the FIBA Europe Cup as their first win came in the form of a 94-59 rout of ETHA Engomi on the road.

Turning Point: After ETHA struck first at the start of the game, Juventus replied with 11 straight - with Egidijus Dimsa contributing six - to power their way into the lead and they never looked back, ending the first period with a 32-12 lead.

Stats Don't Lie: While most of the stats weighed heavily in Juventus' favour, on the face of it the turnovers seemed fairly even - ETHA's 22 to Juventus' 17. But the visitors turned those into 30 points compared to only eight for ETHA.

Game Hero: Chavaughn Lewis had 19 points and seven rebounds for Juventus, but also four steals to help Juventus to a 15-6 edge in that department.

The Bottom Line: Both these teams were running out of time to make an impression after starting 0-2, but this huge win on the road would appear to make clear which of the two still has a shot at getting out of the group. It will be a long road back for ETHA from here.
