Promitheas steals win at Slask, 76-78

In a losing effort, Slask's Jeremiah Martin had 17 points, Aleksander Dziewa posted a 14-point, 11-rebound double-double, and Conor Morgan finished with 13 points.

Slask came into this game with a 0-4 record, but it got off to a good start after Martin came out the blocks with 9 of the team's 18 first-quarter points. Promitheas finished with 14 points after the first 10 minutes, but perhaps most importantly for Slask, it kept Promitheas scorer Young scoreless. Slask managed to open up a 10-point lead over Promitheas in the opening stages of the second quarter, 24-14, but then Young began to put his fingerprints on proceedings with 9 points in four and a half minutes, which made it 30-31 with 3:33 remaining. Cowan briefly extended that advantage to 30-33, but then a 12-0 run by the hosts ensured that Slask went into the break ahead, 42-33. That lead extended out to 11 points in the third quarter, but Promitheas continued to plug away, refusing to let Slask run away with the win. Nevertheless, the third quarter ended with Slask 12 points ahead, 62-50. The hosts were able to win all three of the first quarters – 18-14, 24-19 and 20-17 – but it began to come unstuck in the final period. Promitheas continued to put points on the board, and then a Nemanja Dangubic dunk off an alley-oop from Young appeared to give the Greeks the momentum, as it was just one point behind, 66-65, with 5:25 left. It suddenly became a back-and-forth game, without Promitheas ever going ahead. That is until Cowan stepped up to the plate by making an incredibly tough three-pointer with a hand in his face to all but win the game for Promitheas. There were 1.2 seconds remaining for Slask to have an attempt at rescuing the win, but Morgan missed his shot, so Slask remains winless and Promitheas now has the joint-best record in Group B.
