Rolston roars for Bullets

FIBA Champion's Cup
Birmingham Bullets 81 (25,42,55) (Rolston 27, Phillips 18, Redd/Henlan/Jackson 9)
Oliverense (POR) 77 (17,33,60) (Veldhuizen 22, Seixas 17, Muse 16)

Birmingham Bullets moved level on points with second placed Dijon of France in Group A with an 81-77 success over Oliveirense of Portugal. 

Bullets dominated the first half and led 42-33 at the interval. But some good shooting from Carlos Seixas saw Oliveirense take a five point lead into the final quarter. 

However the hosts were soon back on terms thanks to Michael Jackson, before seven unanswered points gave Birmingham a 76-71 lead they would never lose. 

Kyle Rolston top scored with 27 points, whilst Kevin Veldhuizen led the Portuguese side with 22.

In the same group, Tenerife left Switzerland with a valuable 79-69 win over Fribourg while Dijon defeated Mons 75-60
