The FIBA Europe Cup champions, Khimki Moscow Region, went down to the Croatian club Cedevita Olimpija 77-72 in the last 16 of the Eurocup competition on Wednesday.

The home side led by as many as 16 points in the first half but Khimki fought back and closed the gap to just two points early in the fourth quarter. However, they could not complete the comeback and bowed out of the tournament.

American guard Lamar Patterson led all scorers with 22 points for Cedevita, with Janis Strelnieks adding 18 points. For Khimki, Tyler Honeycutt led the way with 20 points while Aaron Jackson scored 17.
