GAME REPORT

09.12.2003
TSK Würzburg 73 BC Boncourt 77

This time, an early lead was not enough for TSK Würzburg to secure a home win in the qualification round of FIBA’s Europe Cup.

Alonzo Richmond, who hit all four of his three pointers in the first half and Yuanta Holland then started a 14:4-rally for the Swiss team and closed the gap to 21:20 after ten minutes.

"Even when we had the big lead I thought we were in trouble", TSK Head Coach Aaron McCarthy commented after the game: "Boncourt played with confidence, and some of my players were not focused at all." A strong performance on the defense-end helped Würzburg to still control the score at halftime, 41-33.

Quotes TSK Würzburg - BC Boncourt

Aaron McCarthy, Head Coach, TSK Würzburg:

“We had a difficult situation when we lost a close game in the German league and our key player with an injury just two days ago. It’s a psychological problem right now. But we can’t win with only three players performing. I’m very disappointed with the way Tony Kichings and Igor Perovic played tonight.”
