Banvit Back To Winning Ways


Banvit banished the memory of their defeat to Azovmash last time out with a 91-60 mauling of Atomeromu SE on Wednesday night.

Clearly determined to get their EuroCup campaign back on track following the loss to Azovmash, Banvit produced a clinical performance to see off a Atomeromu side who have now lost both their Group C matches.

Banvit set the tone for the match by draining a hat-trick of three-pointers inside the opening two minutes, two coming from Miroslav Radosevic and the other from Mehmet Ersin Gorkem.

That helped the Turkish hosts - who never trailed - into an early 9-3 lead and they extended that to 28-11 by the end of the opening period.

Atomeromu were never able to recover from that as Banvit continued to stamp their authority on the game in the second period, extending their lead to 19 points at 44-25 by the midway point of the match.

After that it was just a case of how big Banvit's winning margin would be in the end.

The final period was as similarly one-sided as the first, with Banvit outscoring their hapless opponents 25-11 en route to a convincing victory.

American guard Marque Perry led all scorers with 20 points for Banvit, while he also grabbed six rebounds and handed out four assists.

Radosevic, whose early successes set Banvit on the way to victory, missed just one of his five three-point attempts on the night to finish with a 14-point haul.

Overall, Banvit made 57% of their 21 three-point shots, compared to a dismal 19% by Atomeromu, who downed just five of their 26 tries.

The visitors' leading scorer was Zoltan Horvath with 14 points, while Marcellus Sommerville was the only other player from the Hungarians to reach double-figures with 12 points.
