As part of the semi-finals of the Final Four of the Basketball Champions League, which is taking place throughout the weekend in Tenerife, Spain, the Monegasques faced the Turkish team Banvit Bandirma. 

After a hard-fought match that showed little dexterity, the Roca Boys finally lost 83-74. 

The red and whites took charge of the match in the first half, but floundered in the second, with a lack of success, especially at 3 points. 

The opposite was true of Banvit, who were able to score from beyond the three-point line  in the third quarter.

Despite a good performance from Jamal Shuler, who made his comeback with 20 points, the Monegasques were unable to reverse the trend. 

On the opposing team, the iconic Jordan Theodore led his team to the final – the best scorer in the match with 21 points, despite a lack of dexterity, but with many free throws. 

On Sunday, at 5.15 p.m., the Roca Boys will face Iberostar Tenerife or Umana Reyer Venezia for the 3rd place match.
