Looks like a decent result for Lions, although I don't know how good the opposition actually are, however given they play in the top league in Poland, I presume they're quite strong compared to BBL teams. Scoring was very guard/small forward led which may have just been how the coach set up this particular game but it would be good to see the big men have more influence on the scoring in the next game.
Lions beat Asseco Gdynia this evening 92-61. Not sure of Gdynia's quality but a win certainly provides momentum.

They finished 13 out of 17 teams in the top polish league last season so not a great polish team but still an impressive winning margin with it being lions 2nd game together, rocks presumably at full strength on the 22nd will be the best gauge
Another good win & excellent preparation for Lions. With only 2 returning players the fact the coach has got them playing d hard enough to keep a team to under 60 is promising. Unfortunate that there's no full stats but the scoring has a far better split which is encouraging. Perhaps someone with knowledge of European basketball can advise how good the Polish league is.
Lions won their latest game 86-90 yesterday. They were trailing for the majority of the game but clearly dug deep in the 4th to grab the win. Easily the most competitive game so far & a real test for Lions & quite promising that they dug in deep, despite having played just 24 hours earlier. Rebounding was an issue if stats are to be believed & without a proper big man that could be an issue in the season proper. Good to see that different players have been having an influence on the scoring in each game.
Lions play again this morning in the last of their tour dates. Given this is the 3rd game in 3 days it'll be really tough to keep the winning momentum going.
Lions lose their final tour game 91-82. 3 games, 3 days always a mountain to climb, particularly without Robinson. 5 days until Rocks when we'll get a better idea of what the team are capable of. Easily Lions most professional pre-season, hope it's a sign of things to come.
2NFR: Hogg could do a lot worse, Sharks on a bit of a roll right now ... could be the top team next season (depends if Attiba stays or not)
