SLUC Nancy 83 ECM Nymburk 88
Nancy's Velibor Radovic kept his team alive in the biginning of the second half
At the begining most of the actions were in the paint and both teams played hard. So many shots were missed. Then Nancy made two major changes, bringing point guard Randolph Childress and center Vincent Masingue on the field.
Now Nancy’s game of got more efficient. But the field goal percentage of Nymburk was also pretty good. At the end of the first quarter the guests from the Czech Republic led 23-19. Nymburk increased their lead by several three-point shots. But, after deciding to defend harder Nancy had more success and tied the game at half-time (39-39).
In the second half it was again Nymburk who took the lead thanks to their good shooting from the floor. The game continued to be hard, with many fouls on both sides. Seven minutes to go, the two guards Velibor Radovic and Fred Vincon helped Nancy to come back in the game (71-69).
Scored 22 points and grabbed 11 rebounds: Radek Necas (Nymburk)
But as Nymburk’s Maurice Whitfield came back into the game his team could take control of the match again. Even though Whitfield and his team-mate Jiri Zidek were fouled out in the last minute the guests managed to hold Nancy down and win the game 88-83.
