Tenerife edged Barcelona at home (63-57) and climbed higher in the ACB standings in their effort to maintain a top four push.

The hosts were in front by 11 at halftime (35-24) and despite the Catalans’ effort to turn things around in the second half (44-40), they stood tall and claimed a big win over the league leaders.

Tom Abromaitis led the winners in scoring with 20 points, as Colton Iverson added 10 points and eight rebounds.

Kevin Pangos had 12 points for the losing squad, which scored a season-low 57 points. Adam Hanga posted 11 points, 10 boards and six assists.

Tenerife improved to 12-7, whereas Barcelona dropped to 16-3.
