BRATISLAVA, Jan. 27 (Xinhua) -- Inter Bratislava edged Iskra Svit 94-89 and took fourth place in the Slovak Basketball League.

His Lithuanian teammate Arnas Berucka was close behind with 27 points.

The home team was up by one point going into the locker rooms at half-time but Bratislava managed to build a 10-point lead in the final stretch.

Elsewhere, third-ranked BKM Lucenec had no trouble defeating Prievidza by almost 30 points, 103-75, to solidify its position in the standings.

American guard James Murray-Boyles had his best night of the season, leading Lucenec with 30 points and 6 rebounds.
