GAME REPORT


Oostende Edge Nancy In Group H Thriller

BC Oostende scraped a 78-76 victory over previously unbeaten SLUC Nancy on Tuesday night with Marcus Faison drilling a game-winning jump shot four seconds from the end.

The success has lifted the Belgian side to 2-2 in a tight Group H, with Dexia Mons-Hainaut also 2-2 after their triumph over Entente Orleanaise (1-3).

Oostende led 64-54 with 7:30 to go in the fourth quarter but ended up winning in thrilling fashion.

Ben Ebong missed the first but made the second of two free-throws with 47 seconds to go to give Oostende a 76-74 advantage.

Nancy's Tremmell Darden went to the other end and knotted the game at 76-76 with a jumper, taking his points haul to 24 on the night.

But with time winding down, Faison scored the biggest two of his 17 points on the night for Oostende.

Matthew Lojeski poured in a team-high 20 points for the winners.

Oostende out-rebounded Nancy 39-31, with Ebong hauling in a game-high 12.

They also benefitted from the French outfit's profligacy at the charity stripe.

They hit just 11 of 20 (55%) of their free-throws.

Darden finished with a double-double for Nancy (3-1) because he also had 10 rebounds.

COACH QUOTES


Quotes BC Oostende vs SLUC Nancy

SLUC Nancy Head Coach Jean-Luc Monschau:
"First of all congratulations to Oostende for this victory. Unfortunately we cannot continue our streak of winning games. Today we were out-rebounded by a team that was more hungry to win this despite our fabulous comeback in the 4th quarter."

SLUC Nancy player Kenny Grant:
"We were outrebounded in this game. I have the feeling that we were not ready for this game. They really killed us on the boards. If we want to win on the road we need to show a different mentality."

BC Telenet Oostende Head Coach Jean-Marc Jaumin:
"What a win. I am very happy for the team, for the fans, for this club and for myself. After all this these close games we've lost the last weeks it feels extremely good to win this one. I saw a team with a strong fighting spirit. Despite the fact that we decided the rhythm of the game, we put ourselves in trouble at the end."

BC Telenet Oostende player Marcus Faison:
"We deserved this win. This team has enough talent to win more games than we did so far. We just need keep our heads up, definitely in the last quarter. Unbelievable how we let them come back in the game."
