Roanne Overpower Keravnos


A balanced attack, with six players scoring in double figures, saw Roanne Basket sink Keravnos 96-74 and stay perfect in Group H of the EuroChallenge.

Ralph Mims had 16 points, Uchenna Nsonwu and Nicholas Lewis added 14 each, while Mouloukou Diabate had 12 and David Noel and Pape-Philippe Amagou 10 each in a complete team performance that saw Roanne make 38 of 67 (56.7%) of their shots from the field.

However, they did not have it all their own way, and Keravnos enjoyed a 35-23 lead after Aleksandar Damjanovic's jump-shot midway through the second quarter.

But back-to-back three-pointers from Diabate and Etienne Brower sparked a 16-0 run that saw Roanne come roaring back and take the lead.

Keravnos were rocked and watched the game slip through their fingers in the third quarter as Roanne pulled further clear.

Lonnie Cooper led the visitors with 17 points, while Damjanovic had 14, Bryant Smith 12 and JoJo Garcia and Panagiotis Trisokkas 10 each.
