GAME REPORT


Gravelines Come Good Late

9. Benjamin Woodside (BCM Gravelines Dunkerque)
Benjamin Woodside kept his best for last as he scored 10 points in the last quarter to seal the victory over BK Ventspils

Ben Woodside took center stage again for BCM Gravelines in a 74-70 EuroChallenge victory over BK Ventspils.

The team's leading scorer, Woodside had 10 of his game-high 27 points in the fourth quarter as the French team improved to 3-0 in the EuroChallenge.

Gravelines trailed 64-62 with 5:24 left following a Saulius Kuzminskas put-back.

Mouhamed Sene pulled Gravelines level with a hook shot and then after two misses at the free-throw line by Rashad Anderson, point guard Woodside buried a jumper to make it 66-64.

A lay-up by Oritseweyinmi Efejuku reduced the arrears to 68-66 with 1:18 to go, but Woodside hit another jumper and then sank two free-throws with 25 seconds left for a 72-66 Gravelines lead.

The French held on for victory to drop Ventspils to 1-2.

Woodside was a perfect eight of eight from the free-throw line after making all nine of his attempts in last week's 67-64 triumph at Sport Lisboa e Benfica.

He also had five assists, seven rebounds and three steals.

Sene continued to impress, finishing with 15 points, 10 boards, a steal and a block.

Anderson ended up with 25 points in defeat.

COACH QUOTES


Quotes BCM gravelines Dunkerque vs BK Ventspils

Ventspils BK Head coach Algirts Brazis:
"We were up by 14 points but in its arena, the French team never gives up. They came back and they run well in the money time. I would like to congratulate Gravelines to their game."


Ventspils Player Lauris Blaus:
"We came here to win the game and we lost. We can be a great team if we respect our rules. But our problem is sometimes we don't respect our plan.We were prepared to this game and we let Ben Woodside score too much in this game."


Dunkerque Player Ben Woodside:
"You have to give credit to Ventspils team. Anderson is really a good player, he hit difficult shots tonight. To win this game, we had to get our defense back, what we did in the last quarter."

Dunkerque Head Coach Christian Monschau:
"It was a tough game as we were down by 14 points. I thought it was going to be hard to come back but we did it. Ventspils never let it down."
