Kyiv, Pustozvonov Pile On The Agony For Keravnos


Maksym Pustozvonov continued his fine start to the EuroChallenge for BC Kyiv on Tuesday by scoring 20 points in an 80-72 home triumph over Keravnos.

The 22-year-old small forward is now averaging 19.3 points per game and shooting a scintillating 76.5% inside the arc, which ranks second in the competition.

He is also a scalding hot 69.2 % from three-point range, having made nine of 13.

In the Group H clash with Keravnos, his three-ball midway through the second quarter put Kyiv on top, 28-26, and they stayed in front the rest of the way.

That shot, one of his two three-pointers on the night, started a 9-0 run.

Kyiv weren't able to press home the advantage, however, and led just 54-51 early in the fourth quarter when Viacheslav Kravtsov dunked, Artem Shvets buried a three-ball and Kravtsov dunked again before hitting a jumper for a 63-51 lead with 5:29 to go.

They stayed in control the rest of the way.

Denys Lukashov finished with 14 points, seven assists and seven rebounds for Kyiv.

Keravnos, who fell to 0-3, got 14 points from Lonnie Cooper.
