Alex Marcotullio added 20 points, 4 rebounds, 3 assists and 3 steals in 23 minutes, going 6/7 from long range, Adam Thoseby had 17 points, whilst Will Saunders had 9 points and 7 rebounds without missing a field goal.
Tim Lewis was pleased with the victory:
“Tonight’s game was comfortable, Romania aren’t a bad team, but we did an extremely good job. It was a great effort all round, we shared the ball well and we stuck to our play, so I’m very pleased with it. We took care of things defensively, and our offence worked on the back of that.”
