Ural Cruise Past Olympias

Ural Great reached the EuroCup preliminary round in style as they saw off Greek side Olympias Patras 77-60.

Brindley Wright top-scored with 18 points and grabbed six rebounds as Russian outfit Ural, who had won the first leg in Greece 80-66, polished off Olympias in comprehensive fashion.

With a 14-point deficit to make up going into the game, any realistic hopes Olympias had of a comeback were dashed after only five minute as Ural went 15-5 ahead to take their overall lead to 24 points.

At half-time Ural were 39-27 in front, but at the beginning of the third quarter a three-point play by Tomas Nagys reduced the score to 39-30.

However, that would prove to be the closest Olympias got to Ural as the Russians took control and finished the third quarter 63-44 in front.

Olympias tried in vain to find a way back into the game, but two free throws from Alexey Surovstev made it 77-58 before Vasileios Soulis' jump-shot saw the game finish 77-60.

Once again Ural were strong with their rebounds, grabbing 37 compared to Olympias' 27, while the Greeks also struggled with free throws making only 55.5% compared to Ural's 78.9%.
