Spartak Moscow can now sleep more soundly. The only other undefeated team in Euroleague, Krakow, lost on the road in Italy to Beretta 92-88. With Krakow 8-1 and Perfumerias and Beretta right behind at 7-2, Krakow needs a win in Croatia against 1-8 Gospic next week to finish in first place in Group B.
Tied at 68-68 entering the fourth quarter, a jumper by Beretta's Marissa Coleman put the home team up for good with 4:23 to play. Krakow could have tied it at 86-86 with 43 seconds left, but Audret Sauret-Gillespie's jumper fell short.
