UrFU's men's basketball defeats Moscow in second game

Earlier this week, Ural Federal University's men's basketball team defeated students from the Russian State University of Physical Culture, Sport, Youth and Tourism in Moscow.

The team won two matches with scores of 71-66 and 93-71. The wins advance the team through the semi-finals of the International Student Basketball League. The playoff regulations state that teams will play two matches, one at home and one away.

Last month, UrFU defeated the Moscow team at home, dominating the match from the start.

Alexander Skewers and Daniel Loginov were noted as the most valuable players of the game, racking up 23 points and 12 rebounds, respectively.

The UrFU basketball team will next play the UrFU Russian Legal Academy of the Ministry of Justice in March.
