GAME REPORT

09.09.2006
Romania Get On Top Of Irish Early

Romania's successful start to their EuroBasket Division B qualifying campaign continued with a convincing 81-62 victory over Ireland.

Romania had downed Cyprus 79-64 in their opening Group A game while Ireland had lost 59-57 to Switzerland, and Saturday's match in Dublin went to form thanks to a superb team display by the visiting side.

Guard George Paul Helcioiu paced the victors with 22 points, six rebounds and six assists.

Helcioiu's three-pointer in the opening minute of the game put Romania ahead straight away and they never looked back, establishing a 24-12 lead by the end of the first period.

Ireland threatened a fightback at the start of the second quarter as two successful three-balls from Jay Larranaga and a lay-up from Donald McGrath reduced the deficit to 26-20.

But Romania kept their hosts at arm's length and ran out comfortable winners in the end.

Catalin Burlacu, a star with CSU Asesoft Ploiesti in the EuroCup last season, poured in 17 points and grabbed five rebounds for Romania, while Virgil Stanescu added 16 and eight.

Bogdan Popescu had 13 points, six boards and three assists while Brice Kabengele Kalala contributed 13 points and pulled down five rebounds.

For Ireland, Larranaga was the game's leading scorer with 24 points but only two of his team-mates managed to join him in double-figures, Christopher Bracey netting 14 and Marty Conlon 11.

Ireland's two setbacks will be a surprise to many as they almost won promotion last season before suffering a narrow aggregate defeat to Denmark.
