The Principality club suffered the law of Fenerbahçe (98-94) in Turkey.
Monaco lost on the floor of Fenerbahce (98-94), after extra time, during the 20th day of Euroleague Thursday, recording a fourth consecutive defeat far from its bases in the competition.
The “Roca team”, very heavily defeated last week in Belgrade (92-68), showed a much better face in Istanbul, especially during the first period which it won 47-39. But she could not resist the Turkish awakening, led in particular by American strong winger Jonathan Motley, 17 points, Turkish-American leader Scottie Wilbekin, his team’s top scorer, 21 points, and Nick Calathes, decisive in extension.
On the Monegasque side, if Jordan Loyd, one of his best players this season, injured for three weeks, returned to the courts but remained discreet, it was above all captain Yakuba Ouattara and Alpha Diallo who assisted Mike James, best scorer in the meeting (23 points), however insufficient to overcome Fenerbahce. Still fifth in the standings before the other matches of the 20th day, still in the race to qualify for the “Final Four”, Monaco will host Milan, 17th and penultimate in the Euroleague, during the 21st day next Thursday.
