Three-time reigning qualifier champion U18 Zalgiris Kaunas set up a showdown with U18 CSKA Moscow for a spot in the final of the EUROLEAGUE BASKETBALL ADIDAS NEXT GENERATION TOURNAMENT Kaunas by beating U18 Canarias Basketball Academy Las Palmas 76-53. Zalgiris improved to 2-0 in Group B as Erikas Venskus collected 17 points and 8 rebounds. Zalgiris, which also got 11 points from Ignas Sargiunas, has never lost a qualifier game at Zalgirio Arena with 18 straight wins dating back to 2011-12 season. Zalgiris will face off against CSKA on Friday in a battle of 2-0 teams with the winner reaching Saturday’s final. CBA dropped to 0-2 despite Danilo Brnovic picking up 11 points. CBA plays its final Group B game on Friday against U18 VEF Riga. The winner will play for fifth place.

Sargiunas picked up 5 early points in helping Zalgiris open a 10-5 lead. Venskus took over for a couple of minutes with 7 points for a 19-12 cushion. The gap was 21-16 after 10 minutes. Nothing could go wrong for Venskus in the first half with two more baskets early in the second quarter and Sargiunas nailed two three-pointers as Zalgiris upped the advantage to 38-20. CBA worked the deficit down to 40-25 but Marius Valinskas came off the bench for 5 straight points and the host team was up 45-25 at the break. The third quarter saw Volodymyr Markovetskyy score 4 points for Zalgiris while Wang Xiaoyi picked up 5 points for CBA, which could not cut the deficit closer than 18 points. And Zalgiris led 60-35 after 30 minutes. The advantage was 25 points - 65-40 - on another score from Valinskas. Jose Perez came off the CBA bench for 5 points and the gap was 65-47. But the Zalgiris bench remained being productive and kept CBA from getting any closer.
