A victory that sends a message to the rest of the European teams. Barça defeated Olimpiacos by 72 to 81, thus sealing their third victory in a row in the Top 16. The men managed by Xavi Pascual won the match thanks in part to a great performance from Juan Carlos Navarro, who scored 21 points. Barça’s defence, which was led by Sada, also looked very solid.
