Eric McCollum led all scorers with 30 points on 5/8 two-point shots, 4/5 3-point shots, 8/9 free throws, 4 rebounds, 6 assists, 4 turnovers, 36 PIR).

Alan Williams was also big for Branko Maksimovic's team. The American center was having a great campaign last year, but tore his ACL and has never produced consistent numbers ever since. In this game, however, he shined again scoring 17 points on 6/11 from the field, whilst grabbing a season-record 14 rebounds for a PIR of 29 (also a season-best).

Codi Miller-McIntyre poured in 20 points for the hosts, but on a poor 8/25 from the field. Andorra finished on 45% two-point shooting and 27% from deep.

The game was balanced only in its first two minutes (3-3). After that, Loko simplified the situation, hitting shots from the perimeter and running on fast-breaks. The visitors counted on a partial score of 5-21 to establish an early double-digit lead which they comfortably preserved until the end.

McCollum started the game on fire, going for 14 points in the first quarter. Andorra were able to close the gap at the beginning of the third quarter (50-53) but then went scoreless for three minutes, allowing Williams and McCollum to wreak havoc.

The contest's final stretch turned into a pure formality, especially after the Russian side made a 0-7 run that catapulted the margin to 18 points (61-79).

MoraBanc Andorra: Codi Miller-McIntyre 20 (8/25 FG, 4 REB, 8 AST), Amine Noua 12 (5/8 FG, 0/2 FT,), Clevin Hannah 9 (5 AST), Oriol Pauli 6 (5 REB), Moussa Diagne 4 (10 REB).

Lokomotiv Kuban Krasnodar: Eric McCollum 30 (5/8 2-POINT SHOTS, 4/5 3-POINT SHOTS, 8/9 FT, 4 REB, 6 AST, 4 TO, 36 PIR), Alan Williams 17 (6/11 FG, 14 REB, 3 AST, 2 ST, 29 PIR), Darius Thompson 17 (7/11 FG, 2/2 FT), Zakhar Vedishchev 8 (4 REB).
