GAME REPORT


Carolo Cling On For Victory

4. Amel Bouderra (Carolo Basket)
Amel Bouderra and Carolo Basket were victorious in Hungary

Carolo Basket held off a late rally from Aluinvent Miskolc to triumph 69-59 on the road in EuroCup Women Group E's only game on Wednesday.

Carolo came into the contest full of confidence having beaten Lombos Cascais last time out to register their first success in this year's competition and quickly set about extending their hosts' wait for a first win.

The French club jumped out to a 21-8 start, behind the sharp shooting of Jovana Rad and maintained the upper hand as their advantage grew to 62-44 early in the final period.

The Hungarian side were far from done, however, and outscored Carolo 15-7 in the final seven minutes as they mounted a late challenge.

Réka Bálint did all she could to propel her team forward, but ultimately the hosts had left themselves too much to do and Carolo hung on.

Rad led all scorers with 18 points to go with six rebounds as team-mate Amel Bouderra contributed 15.

Bálint's team-high tally of 13 was matched by Naignouma Coulibaly, who also reeled in 12 rebounds, but Miskolc remain bottom as Carolo climb to second.

COACH QUOTES


Quotes: Aluinvent DVTK Miskolc vs. Flammes Carolo Basket

Jovana Rad, Carolo Basket
"It was a hard game against a strong team but we were able to win and this the most important thing for us. Today we executed what we discussed previously in the locker room."

 

Romuald Yerneaux, Carolo Basket Head Coach
"At the begining we found our rhythm, our offence and defence was good, so we could collect a huge advantage. At the second half we had some trouble with our offence against zone but our defence remained stable."

 

Tímea Czank, Aluinvent DVTK
"Unfortunately we slept in the first quarter similarly to last week's game. We only ran after Carolo and when we got closer to them there was somebody among them who made an important shot."

 

Miguel Lopez, Aluinvent DVTK Head Coach
"First of all I must congratulate Carolo Basket. They were better than us this evening. Before the game both teams knew that this one would decide which team can step forward from the group phase. Although all of our players were struggling and I keep my support towards them, at the first half we didn't find the key to play against this type of team."
