GAME REPORT

28.03.2004
Dynamo Moscow Region 53 Tuborg Pilsener 94

Tuborg Pilsener put the bitterness of their semi-final loss in the FIBA Europe Cup Men behind them with an emphatic victory over Russian side Dynamo Moscow to finish the competition in 3rd place.

5 Tuborg players scored in double figures in what proved to be an offensive onslaught that the Russians simply could not handle.

Tuborg point guard Hakan Köseoglu set the tone early on as he pushed his team forward at every opportunity. If Tuborg could not score on the break, they fed the ball inside to Asim Pars, who scored 15 points in the first half.

The home team led 26:14 at the end of the first quarter and the remaining 30 minutes turned into an offensive exhibition from Tuborg. Their fast break raged on unopposed in the second quarter as they literally scored at will against the hapless Dynamo defense.

Dynamo mustered just 4 points in the first 7 minutes of the 2nd quarter, but 4 consecutive points from Andrius Vysniauskas in the final minute gave them a hint of respectability. Halftime score 46:22.

Köseoglu was given a breather in the second half and with his absence came a change in Tuborg’s style of play. Baris Özcan took the offensive reigns and the Turks suddenly got red-hot from behind the 3-point arc. They finished the 3rd quarter with three consecutive long range bombs and went into the final 10 minutes ahead, by 41 points, 69:38.

The game was already over by the start of the last period, but Tuborg did not let up. 5 of their first 6 possessions were punctuated with either another 3-pointer or a 3-point play, and Dynamo were well and truly beaten.

Alex Jensen was a key player for Tuborg throughout, recording 15 points, 14 rebounds and 5 assists. Özcan hit 3/5 three-pointers for 17 points and Glenn Whisby and Asim Pars both had 18.

Konstantin Eremenko scored 16 points for Dnyamo but the team as a whole shot just 32% from the field.

COACH QUOTES

28.03.2004
Quotes Dynamo Moscow Region - Tuborg Pilsener

Evgeni Kovalenko, Head Coach, Dynamo Moscow Region:

"Well we had a lot of problems with injured players. 3 players were out and Andrey Sheyko got injured in yesterday’s game. I had to use some young players which was difficult. We shot very badly today and I don’t remember the last time we shot this badly.

The level of the Final Four is very high and you need to have all your players, so with  3 injuries it is difficult. But our team is young and has only been together for 8 months. I think it was a success for us to get here among the best teams in Europe."

Mete Babaolu, Head Coach, Tuborg Pilsener:

"We wanted to win the Cup but our competitors yesterday were too strong. But I think we showed that we have a team that is capable of competing at this level and we are able to organise a big event."
