Thursday 18th May 2017

Despite the absence of Tofi (inury) and De Thaey having to exit the game early due to injury Proximus Spirou was unable to come away with a victory at the Forum as les Carolos fell 78-68 in the first game of its quarterfinal series versus Crelan Okapi Aalstar.

The visitors kept within striking distance until the end of the first quarter (20-15) before being completely overmatched in the second period (49-31 at the break).

Led by Belgian Player of the Year Troisfontaines (21 pts) Aalstar kept a comfortable lead throughout the second half versus a Proximus Spirou team that was outplayed in defense and on the boards. 

Next up is a must-win game for Proximus Spirou on Friday at the Spiroudôme.​
