GAME REPORT


Swiss Don't Miss Against Cyprus

Switzerland picked up their second win in Division B Group A with a 64-46 victory over winless Cyprus in Nicosia.

The Swiss squeezed past Ireland 59-57 in their opening match but found life a lot easier against the Cypriots, winning every quarter en route to an 18-point win. 

After edging the opening period 14-12, Emmanuel Schmitt's side took total control of the game with a dominant second-quarter display, building a 33-20 at half-time.

Cyprus had no answer to that and they were left to lick their wounds after suffering a second successive defeat.

Roman Imgruth, Vladimir Buscaglia and Oliver Vogt scored the bulk of Switzerland's points, collecting 42 between them.

Point guard Imgruth led all scorers with 15 points - all of them from three-point range where he was five of eight - while Buscaglia poured in 14 points, and Vogt added 13 points as well as a game-high eight rebounds.

Umgruth was the main contributor to an impressive long-range shooting display by the Swiss, who as a team successfully downed 47.8% of their 23 three-point efforts.

In contrast, Cyprus made just 20% of their 15 three-pointers and had just two players score in double-figures, Panagiotis Trisokkas and Panagiotis Serdaris, who finished with 13 and 11 points respectively.
