Prostejov Take Ames But Miss Target As Zagreb Win


KK Zagreb got big games again Ante Tomic and Krunoslav Simon to complete their EuroChallenge Qualifying Round 1 victory over BK Prostejov.

The duo shone in the first leg played in the Czech Republic last week and on Tuesday back in the Czech Republic, Tomic had 17 points and 19 rebounds while Simon scored a game-high 23 in a 79-73 triumph.

The result gave Zeljko Pavlicevic's side a 148-134 win on aggregate.

A determined Prostejov made Zagreb work for their victory on the night.

They pulled level on aggregate at 42-34 with 6:41 to go in the third quarter after a basket by Rahsaan Edward Ames.

Prostejov were still on top in the game at 46-39 with 3:41 to go in the third quarter when Zagreb stole the initiative with a 12-0 run.

Mario Dundovic started the scoring burst with a three-ball and Petar Babic capped it with a three as Zagreb led 53-48.

Prostejov didn't go away and went back in front in Tuesday's game at 59-57 with 6:07 to play after another three from Ames.

But they got no closer on aggregate the rest of the way.

Ames led the Czech team's scoring with 20 points while Shaun Steven Pruitt scored 14 and pulled down 12 boards.
