BYU HOOP TEAM DROPS TO 0-3 ON EUROPEAN TOUR

SHARE BYU HOOP TEAM DROPS TO 0-3 ON EUROPEAN TOUR

BYU took the defending European Cup champion to overtime Wednesday night, but Smelt Olimpija won, 83-80.

Never mind that Olimpija did not have its starting 7-0 center from the Russian World Games team or that its American who played at Wichita State was hurt. The other players, sponsored by a construction and engineering firm, are either members of the Slovenian National or Junior National teams.BYU, now 0-3 in Europe this week. Mark Durrant, one of five Cougars in double figures, led BYU with 13 points.
