Ukraine: Annenkov Gets Hot as Odessa Win

04 May 2004

MBC Odessa breathed life back into their fading play-off hopes with a 98-88 victory in the third match of their Superliga semi-final against BC Kiev.

Kiev looked to have the series under complete control after winning the opening two matches.

They led Game Three by five at the end of the first quarter but MBC, sensing it was their last throw of the dice, hit back.

They reduced Kiev's lead to two points at the interval before taking control in the third period where, inspired by the hot long-range shooting of Yevhen Annenkov, they outscored the visitors 33-24.

Annenkov finished with 26 points while his team-mates Oleh Kozoriz (22 points), Hennadiy Kuznetsov (18) and Yaroslav Zubritsky (16) all contributed to the victory.

The other semi-final will also go to a fourth game after BC Khimik beat BC Azovmash 109-93 on the back of a tremendous performance from Nerius Varnelis.

He scored 29 points - more than twice as many as any of the Azovmash players - as Khimik picked up their first win of the semi-final series following back-to-back defeats.
