Monaco ride Cooper, Lacombe past Zielona Gora and into Quarter-Finals

MONACO (Basketball Champions League) - AS Monaco Basket punched their ticket to the Quarter-Finals of the Basketball Champions League after rolling to a 90-60 triumph over Stelmet Zielona Gora.

DJ Cooper pulled many of the strings for a Monaco side that had only won the first leg 84-82 last week.

The 27-year-old was involved in several highlight reel plays and had 10 assists to go with his 8 points and 7 rebounds.

Paul Lacombe also got in on the act, scoring a game-high 18 for the winners.

Monaco dominated from beginning to end. They will now face the winner of the Round of 16 tie between Banvit and Nanterre.

The second leg of that showdown will be played on Wednesday in Turkey, with Banvit holding an eight-point advantage from last week's first game between the sides in France.

Monaco's home game was a big event tonight.

Albert II Prince of Monaco 🇲🇨 was in the house tonight!
