Imperial Remains Unbeaten

In the only international game Thursday featuring a Storm player, K.V. Imperial AEL went to Spain to defeat Gran Canaria 69-63 in a defensive struggle. Gran Canaria was held to 35.3 percent shooting. Imperial got balanced scoring with four players scoring double-figures, including Storm forward Shyra Ely, who had 12 points and 13 rebounds in 33 minutes.

At 2-0, Gran Canaria is all alone atop Group F and in good shape to advance. The top two teams advance from each group in the EuroCup format along with the eight best third-place teams for a 32-team elimination round. Last year Imperial went 2-4 to finish third in its group.
