Zenit hands CSKA its first defeat of the season

At the second group stage, there are many more “big” games, and it’s no surprise that Zenit travels to Moscow in order to play against CSKA for the second time in 2,5 weeks.

The game was all about streaks, and in the beginning of the second half it seemed like the opponents were controlling the tempo. Though, a time-out by Pascual changed everything, and Zenit had just -1 looking into the last quarter. Thanks to a great game by Homesley, Heurtel and Frazier, Zenit handed CSKA its first defeat this VTB League season – 90:86.

Trent Frazier scored 15 pts in his first game for Zenit, Thomas Heurtel made another double-double with 12 pts and 11 assists. Sergey Karasev, Adrien Moerman and Trey Thompkins all scored 11 pts each.

Next one is against Nizhny in the road on Monday, Feb 13th.
