Promitheas have crashed out of the Basketball Champions League following a 79-57 thrashing at the hands of Iberostar Tenerife in the second leg of their Round of 16 tie on Wednesday night.
Rion Brown led Promitheas with 20 points and Tony Meier added 10 points as the Greek side struggled with the pressures of the road atmosphere.
Despite nursing a 12-point aggregate lead from the first leg, Promitheas failed to take advantage in the return leg as Tenerife erased the deficit from the first leg with a 27-14 run in the first quarter.
The Spanish side took control of the tie in the second half with another dominant stretch as Promitheas’ offense was held to just 9 points in a lopsided 17-9 run for Tenerife.
Trailing 44-23 at halftime, Promitheas failed to rise to the occasion in the second half as Tenerife further extended their lead on the night and on the aggregate scoreboard.
Promitheas provided little pushback in the fourth quarter but by then the tie was beyond Makis Giatras’ men as the Patras side crash out of their maiden European campaign after a respectable run to the Round of 16.
