GAME REPORT


BC Kyiv 102 vs. Fersped Rabotnicki 73

BC Kyiv managed a 102-73 win at home over BC Fersped Rabotnicki this evening, and with it they continue to lead Group A of the FIBA Europe League.

BC Kyiv started out reserved in the first quarter and allowed the visitors to stay close, however a time out by Renato Pasquali served as a wake-up call for the home side. During the final seconds of the quarter Marcelo Nicola blocked what seemed to be a definite dunk by Srgan Stankovik and initiated a fast break, which led to a buzzer beating three by Lamarr Greer.

Fersped Rabotnicki started out the second quarter playing zone defense with the hopes of slowing the home team. However BC Kyiv had answers for everything that Fersped threw their way, and established a comfortable 21-point lead by halftime.

Throughout the third quarter Goran Samardziev shot lights-out from behind the arc, and as a result BC Kyiv was unable to increase their lead further. However Rabotnicki still saw themselves behind by 19 at the end of the third period.

In the final quarter, Renato Pasquali allowed his young prospects Oleksiy Pecherov and Victor Herasymchuk to get into the action. The 19 year-old Pecherov impressed everybody with his 14-point, four-rebound performance in only 15 minutes of play.

Ioannis Giannoulis posted a game high 16 points for BC Kyiv and Stankovik’s 14 topped Rabotnicki’s individual scoring stats.

COACH QUOTES


Quotes BC Kyiv vs. Fersped Rabotnicki

Renato Paquali, Head Coach of BC Kyiv:

“It’s very easy to comment on tonight’s game – we built up a sizeable lead in the beginning and managed not to repeat the mistake UNICS committed in Skopje, relaxing and allowing the opponents to catch up after being down by 20.”

Oleksiy Pecherov, BC Kyiv Forward:

“I’ve been waiting for this moment for a long time and would like to thank the coach for giving me the opportunity to play tonight.”
