RIGA, Latvia – Franklin Agu scored a season-best and tied for a game-high with 16 points, and Myerscough overcame BC London Elite 54-47 to win Stage II of the European Youth Basketball League with an unbeaten record on Sunday morning.

Mikey Irvine, who had 11 points, knocked down a 3-pointer with 2:01 left to give Myerscough (9-1, 5-0) a 50-41 lead. London would then get within three before Sco scored the final four points.

Kevinas Kolesnikovas hit a trio of 3-pointers en route to 16 points for London (2-8, 1-4). Matthew Disu chipped in 12.
