The visitors though managed to close out the first quarter on a 14-2 run to go up by 14 and secured a good advantage. In the second at one point the visitors made a 9-1 run and took their lead to 23 after which they controlled the game. Ibar did play very well in the third quarter managing to cut the deficit to 10 points in one moment but the visitors didn′t let their advantage slip away and cruised on to take the victory.
