Anderson Sparks Ventspils In Win Over Khimik



BK Ventspils moved back into first place in EuroChallenge Group B with a 79-70 home triumph over Khimik, behind 19 points from Rashad Anderson and 18 from Saulius Kuzminskas.

The Latvian outfit at 3-1 are a win clear of second-place Maccabi Haifa (2-1) while Khimik (1-2) are third and Deutsche Bank Skyliners (1-3) fourth.

Anderson had the hot hand when it counted.

With the game level at 76-76 and 3:31 remaining, he drilled a shot from long range to ignite a 7-0 run.

Curtis Millage, whose three-ball at the death gave Khimik a one-point win over the Skyliners last week in Ukraine, made a couple of jumpers in the last 1:32 but the hosts didn't crack under pressure.

Ventspils duo Janis Strelnieks and Maris Gulbis each made a pair of free-throws at the end for the nine-point victory.

Oleksandr Kolchenko led Khimik with 17 points while Millage had a game-high five steals to go with his 13 points.
