Dexia Leave It Late To Beat Antwerp



Dexia Mons-Hainaut pulled away late in the fourth quarter to beat the Antwerp Giants 65-58 in their EuroChallenge Group K clash.

The scores were tied 53-53 with 4:27 to go, but a pair of free throws from Peter van Paassen started a 6-0 Dexia run that had them comfortably out in front with less than two minutes to go.

Timothy Black went to the line to cut the gap to four but after a Ronald Lewis turnover, Darnell Wilson could only split his free throws to make it 59-56 with 92 seconds left.

Quincy Taylor then gave Dexia breathing space with a jump-shot and, after Graham Brown came up empty with two free throws and Roel Moors missed a three for the Giants, Taylor added two more from the line.

Jean Mwema scored a jump-shot for Antwerp with 11 ticks left, but Taylor had the final say with two more free throws.

Taylor led Dexia with 16 points while Van Paassen had 10.

Black scored 19 for Antwerp, while Wilson had 12 and Salah Mejri collected 11 rebounds.
