Mike Muscala had another big game but it wasn't enough to prevent Rio Natura Monbus from falling to 1-4 on the season with a 70-63 loss to FIATC Joventut. Muscala did a little bit of everything playing 36 minutes while finishing with 17 points and 16 rebounds. Muscala hit 6-of-11 field goal attempts and was a perfect 5-for-5 from the free throw line.
The performance raises his season averages to 15.6 points and 9.6 rebounds on the season. He is shooting 45 percent from the field and an astonishing 94 percent from the free throw line (32-34). Rio Natura Monbus will be back in action on November 16 against Valencia.
First round draft pick Lucas Nogueira has played in just one Liga Endesa game as he continues to recover from a hamstring injury. Estudiantes takes on Gran Canaria on Sunday.
