2002 Korac Cup winner SLUC Nancy maintained their unbeaten record in the FIBA Europe League with an 80-73 victory over Dynamo Moscow in the Nancy Palais Des Sports.
Nancy jumped out to an early lead thanks to their inside game led by Maxime Zianveni.
That combined with a solid shooting display (53% from the field), capped by Fred Vinson hitting 4 of 4 3-pointers and a cooler touch from the visitors (31%), gave Nancy a 43-33 halftime lead.
Indeed Nancy would go on to control the rest of the game without too many problems. Fred Vinson scored contributed a total of 19 points while Vincent Masingue also hit for 19 to go along with 7 rebounds.
A nervy last few minutes saw the home team commit a slew of turnovers which allowed Moscow to cut the 15-point lead to 7. However, there were only 22 seconds left on the game clock and Moscow’s hopes of victory effectively over.
Julius Jefferson was the top man for Dynamo with 17 points, 6 rebounds and 4 assists. Bosnian point guard Damir Mrsic added 15 points.
