GAME REPORT


Azovmash Cruise Into Quarter-Finals

Azovmash Mariupol booked their place in the quarter-finals of the EuroCup with a comprehensive 79-57 victory away at ASK Riga.

Last week coach Rimas Girskis had accused his players of being overconfident after missing out on the chance to end the group phase undefeated with a 68-51 defeat to Dynamo Moscow.

And they looked like making the same mistake again here, going behind in the opening five minutes thanks to Steponas Babrauskas' early three pointer.

The turning point came five minutes in, when Slaven Rimac and Serhiy Lishchuk made their lay-ups to edge the hosts in front at 8-6, and they maintained that lead throughout, the score 20-12 at the end of the first quarter.

The Ukrainians then almost doubled their opponents tally in the second period and led 39-22 by half-time.

Kenan Bajramovic - who finished as the top-scorer with 17 - making a jump shot on the buzzer to take his tally to seven for the quarter.

The third period was even at 20-20, but Riga could not reduce the deficit
despite the best efforts of their top-scorer Steponas Babrauskas, who sank two three-pointers on his way to a game total of 14.

Things could have been different were it not for the indifferent shooting of Martynas Andriukaitis, who missed a potential 13 points in that quarter alone.

Azovmash out-scored their hosts 20-15 in the final period, Bajramovic making two jump shots within a minute of each other and Panagiotis Liadelis getting six points to make the win emphatic.
