Playing through a debilitating back injury, veteran CSKA Moscow guard Trajan Langdon of Anchorage dropped the pain on Russian opponent Krasnie Krilya in a decisive playoff game.

Backed by his 13 points in just 17 minutes of work, CSKA Moscow won 101-73 to take the series and advance to the Russian League semifinals.

Langdon, of East High fame, was a perfect 3 for 3 from 3-point range.

The 6-foot-3 starter averaged 10.3 points in the series, up slightly from the regular season.

In the final four, CSKA Moscow will face Lokomotiv, a team it beat two of three this season.
