Reigning continental champion U18 CFBB Paris picked up its first victory of the Euroleague Basketball ADIDAS NEXT GENERATION TOURNAMENT Kaunas by knocking off U18 CSKA Moscow 73-77 in the first game of Day 2 in Group B.

CFBB nearly wasted a 17-point lead, but after holding on, both CFBB and CSKA are 1-1 in Group B. CSKA lost despite Aleksandr Ershov pouring in 24 points to go with 8 rebounds and 3 assists for an index rating of 32 while Pavel Zakharov added 20 points in the loss.

Dossou-Yovo scored twice as CFBB used a 0-9 run to jump ahead 6-12 shortly after tipoff. Zakharov had a pair of scores at the other end to even the game at 16-16. And CFBB was up 16-18 after 10 minutes. Dossou-Yovo picked up 5 more points and Juhann Begarin nailed a three-pointer in a 4-12 start to the second quarter for a 20-30 CFBB lead.
