Cedevita Zagreb finished the Ciudad de L'Hospitalet tournament in a positive way with a 65-52 win over Real Madrid to grab the fifth spot in the rankings on Friday afternoon in L'Hospitalet, Spain. Real, that played for the title last year, will settle for the sixth spot. Jakov Mustapic collected 15 points and 10 rebounds for the winners, Stipe Beslic added 14 and Antun Hrkac had 10. Guillermo Hernan-Gomez finished with 20 points for Real as the only player in double-digits. Filip Bundovic scored all his nine points in the first half, and his three pointer gave Cedevita a 36-34 lead at the break. A 16-6 run, that included a big dunk by Karlo Lebo, in the third quarter created the first double-digit gap in the game, and a weak fourth quarter which finished in a 6-7 Real win allowed Cedevita to protect its lead.
