Azovmash in Control in Ukraine

15 May 2004

Azovmash moved a step closer to the Ukraine Superliga title after their 82-72 Game 2 win over BC Kyiv gave them a 2-0 lead in the best-of-seven series.

The match followed a similar pattern to the first game, which Azovmash won 89-72 on Wednesday.

Both teams started off at breakneck speed but it was Azovmash who managed to get the upper hand, shutting down Kiev star duo Sean Colson and Sergei Chikalkin to take a nine-point lead at the end of the first period.

The game slowed considerably in the second period and Kiev managed to reduce the deficit to just four points going into the break.

But Colson, who collected just 10 points in the match, was struggling to get his game going and as a result Kiev slipped further behind in the third period and they rarely looked like getting back into the contest.

Azovmash forward Viacheslav Ievstratenko led all scorers with 23 points while American guard Lorinza Harrington weighed in with 20 points.

For Kyiv, Andriy Lebedev scored 17 points and Chikalkin collected 16.
