BC Beroe is closer and closer to the Second Stage in Delasport Balkan League. The Stara Zagora team hosted KK Ibar and took 74-67 victory in a hard-fought contest. It was the worst offensive performance at home for The Greens but it was enough.

Thanks to that win Beroe now has 5-3 record and only a difficult combination of results might take the team out of top 4. They can qualify without playing already on Thursday if Akademik defeats Ibar. As for the Montenegrin side, they moved to a 3-4 record but are still in with a chance to advance. The team has to play three more games and with two wins might be enough to get them to the next stage.

Beroe took the lead early and never gave it up. Ibar scored the first basket but then a 12-1 run put the hosts ahead for good. Early in the second quarter Beroe went up by 15 which was the biggest lead of the game. Ibar though responded to close the gap to just 4 at the break and in the second half it was a close affair. The visitors were trying hard to complete their comeback but they never cut the deficit to less than 4 points. The last time it happened was with 4 minutes to go but a few missed chances didn't allow them to close it further and Beroe held on for the win.

The hosts were led by Cadarian Raines who finished with 17 points and 6 rebounds. Simeon Iliev also did well with 11 and 7 as Brady Rose scored 10 points.

Nemanja Simovic was the top scorer for the visitors with 16 points, while also adding 6 rebounds, as Amin Hott had 15 and 7.
