Valencia Basket advanced to the 7DAYS EuroCup Semifinals for the ninth time in club history thanks to great efficiency, which led it to a 98-85 home victory over Boulogne Metropolitans 92.
Telling numbers: Valencia's efficiency was the key
Valencia finished the game with 24 assists and just 11 turnovers. Martin Hermannsson was the difference-maker, finishing the game with 11 assists and no turnovers. That set a new club record and was close to the all-time mark - Nick Calathes of Lokomotiv Kuban Krasnodar had 14 assists without any turnovers in a game against Trefl Sopot on December 12, 2012. Metropolitans committed just 7 turnovers - its fewest in a game all season, but could only dish 15 assists, which tied for its second-lowest mark in the present campaign.
