Violets Shut Down Gravelines In Germany

01.12.2009

MEG Göttingen clinched victory in their first-ever home game in European club basketball with an 81-51 blowout triumph over BCM Gravelines Dunkerque in the EuroChallenge.

Chris Oliver had 17 points and nine rebounds for the German club, which won its opener last week at Lokomotiv Kuban.

John Patrick's side led from start to finish.

The Violets stormed out to a 16-7 advantage late in the first quarter and extended that to 41-25 by half-time.

The visitors from France trailed by double digits the rest of the way.

Gravelines point guard Ben Woodside had worried Göttingen before the game but was held to just three points.

He missed all six of his shots from the floor.

The French club made just two of 24 shots from long range compared to six of 19 for the winners.

The home side, roared on by a partisan crowd of 2,205, out-rebounded the visitors 52-29.
