Bulgaria: Troy Franklin with 20 points and 7 assists


Rather expected game in Botevgrad where 5th ranked Academic Plovdiv (8-9) was defeated by third ranked Balkan (11-6) 103-99. They made 20-of-24 charity shots (83.3 percent) during the game. Balkan shot the lights out from three nailing 19 long-distance shots on high 57.6 percentage. Their players were unselfish on offense dishing 23 assists. Our guard guard Troy Franklin (183-PG-89) added 20 points and 7 assists (made all of his seven free throws).
