Krasne Krylia Hang On To Stay Perfect


BC "Minsk-2006" pushed them all the way but Krasnye Krylia remain unbeaten in Group C of the EuroChallenge after a 76-72 win in Belarus tonight.

The hosts put a scare into the group leaders as Krylia watched an eight-point advantage disappear in the final four minutes, but they still had enough to pull out the victory.

Pavel Agapov's free-throws had put Samara in front 72-66 with 3:48 to go.

But Henry Harrison responded with a jump-shot before Dzianis Korshuk buried a three-pointer to make it 72-69.

Valdas Vasylius and Luis Flores then both missed shots for Krylia to give Minsk their chance.

Harrison went to the line and made two to cut the gap to one, 72-71, with 1:06 on the clock, and when Ralph Biggs saw another bounce out for Krylia, the winning streak looked to be under serious threat.

But Harrison missed a three-pointer and Dante Stiggers was also off mark with a jump-shot.
Flores made them pay with a pair of free throws before, and although Harrison cut one more back from the charity stripe, Flores sealed the win in the dying seconds.

Flores finished with 28 points for Krasne Krylia, while Andrey Trushkin also reached double figures with 12 and Vasylius had 11.

Harrison and Alexander Koul both scored 18 for Minsk, while Stiggers added 12.
