Holden, CSKA finish fourth

Bucknell's grad J.R. Holden and his CSKA Moscow team finished a record breaking season in disappointing fashion Sunday, blowing a 22-point lead in the third place game of the Euroleague Final Four and losing 94-91 in double overtime to Panathinaikos.

Up 48-26 in the third quarter, CSKA squandered the entire lead and actually almost lost in regulation before Holden made a steal near midcourt and fed Theodorous Papaloukas for a dunk that tied it at 78-78 at the end of regulation.

Holden finished with 10 points, four assists and five steals for CSKA. But he was just 1-of-6 from 3-point range and had 4 turnovers.

The loss came two days after a surprising semifinals loss to Tau Ceramica, 85-78. Holden lead CSKA with 20 points in the loss.

The two losses came after CSKA had lost just once in 47 previous games this season.
