"BC Rivne-School of High Performance Sports defeated Cherkasy Monkeys 94-89 in the final match of the Cherkasy Super League Favbet pool.

Until the first break, the teams were evenly matched, with a 24-21 advantage in the first quarter in favor of the Monkeys.

Statistically, the first half was equal - Cherkasy Monkeys had a slightly better rebounding game (22 vs. 15) and made much more free throws (13 of 17 vs. 2 of 3 for Rivne). It was the fact that the home team hardly ever fouled that gave them the advantage.

In the third quarter, Cherkasy Monkeys controlled the situation on the court, but everything changed in the last minute of the ten-minute period, when Artem Vodolazky made three consecutive long-range shots, including a basket from downtown, and the teams went into the last break with a +2 advantage, 64:66.
