Basketball: Tigers have another tilt in Europe
Saturday 01 October 1994
Tigers' 82-62 home defeat in the first leg of the second- round tie against Bologna leaves no hope of recovery against the powerful Italians, who train twice a day and whose leading player, the Yugoslav Predrag Danilovic, earns dollars 2m ( pounds 1.3m) a season.
After next week's second leg, which could be even more intimidating if Bologna recall their injured 6ft 11in international centre, Gus Binelli, Tigers go into the third-round draw of the European Cup.
Tigers, 48-21 down at half- time, staged a mini second- half recovery when Danilovic spent seven minutes resting on the bench. Thames Valley's 6ft 11in Neville Austin, who never punched his weight in the first half, scored 12 second-half points and finally gave the willing but undersized American, Tony Holley, some support under Bologna's basket.
