Euroleague: despite 20 points from Mouhammadou Jaiteh, Virtus Bologna loses to Panathinaikos

Nine years after his 13 points scored with Nanterre against kyiv, in December 2013, Mouhammadou Jaiteh has dusted off his Euroleague statistics book. The international pivot split 20 points on Wednesday night with Virtus Bologna on the floor of Panathinaikos. A performance that was not enough for the Italian club, beaten in overtime (85-88, ap), on an award-winning shot from Derrick Williams 15 seconds from the buzzer.

Jaiteh added to his record with 10 rebounds to finish in a double-double. Isaïa Cordinier had a more difficult evening (0 points, 0 out of 2 shooting) but still signed a nice assist for Jaiteh. Virtus (4 wins – 4 losses) is now 10th. In the third match of the evening, with the defeat of Asvel against Bayern Munich (74-75), Baskonia dominated Zalgiris Kaunas (93-73) with 19 points from American pivot Matthew Costello.
