Myerscough wins second-straight EYBL Stage with victory over Minsk


VALMIERA, Latvia — Mikey Irvine scored a team-high 13 points off the bench and Myerscough won its 12th-straight EYBL game, defeating BC Tsmoki-Minsk 68-43 to secure a second consecutive stage victory.

All 10 of Lewis McGlasson’s points came in a row — a sequence that saw the guard convert two 3-pointers, extend Myerscough’s advantage to 14-2 and force Minsk into a timeout with 4:46 left in the opening quarter.

Myerscough (14-1) held Minsk scoreless for a three-minute stretch as it built a 22-2 lead and never looked back. Sco, who led from start to finish, opened a gap as large as 26 points against a team it entered 0-2 against.

Amari Williams added 10 points, eight rebounds and five assists in just under 16 minutes, and all 11 Myerscough players recorded at least three points.

Jan Marynin had a game-high 15 points for Minsk (8-6), which shot just 29 percent, including 4-of-21 from 3-point range. Myerscough has only allowed teams to shoot 31.1 percent from deep.

Myerscough etched its name back into the SuperFinal by virtue of its win on Saturday afternoon over BS DSN.
