UNICS has won their 11th game in a row in the FEL. Next victim was Oostende from Belgium.
The first quarter the 3000 spectators saw a very close game with little advantages for the guests. Oostende led by 2 after 10 minutes (17-19).
But within several minutes UNICS outscored the guests by 11 points for a half-time score of 45-36.
A hard fight characterized the third period. Anstey (24 points; 11 rebounds) played awesome in this quarter. Score after 30 minutes was 59-49, but Oostende didn’t give up.
It were Cizmic and Ross who could narrow the gap with two 3 pointers to 59-55 in the fourth quarter.
But UNICS is a team full of experienced players. So they brought home the game with a final score of 84-73.
MVP: Chris Anstey
Stanislav Eremin, Head Coach UNICS:
"The first game in Belgium was more easy but the Belgians played much better this time. I think it was Gardener who made the team stronger. I was satisfied about the play of Anstey and Muursepp."
Eddie Casteels, Head Coach Oostende:
"I liked the way we played tonight against such a strong team as UNICS, but unfortunately the previous games against the teams from Ukraine and Bosnia we played worse. Now our goal is to win the next games to reach the play-offs."
