Christof Koepsel

Rio Natura Monbus fell to 1-5 on the season after a lopsided 102-70 loss to Valencia on Saturday. Mike Muscala was solid again but Monbus had little answer for Valencia's hot shooting from three-point range.

Muscala led Monbus with 16 points and seven rebounds on 8-11 shooting. Mario Delas added 13 while Nick Minnerath finished with 10. Romain Sato led Valencia with 21 points.

Muscala is now averaging 15.7 points and 9.2 rebounds while shooting 50 percent from the field through six games.

Lucas Nogueira missed his fourth straight game with a hamstring injury on Saturday in an 82-72 loss by Estudiantes to Fuenlabrada. Nogueira has played in just one game this season due to injury.

Rio Natura Monbus will be back in action next Saturday against FCB Regal. Up next for Estudiantes is a matchup with Real Madrid on Sunday.
