GAME REPORT


Azovmash Need Overtime But Finally Beat Maroussi

Azovmash defeated Maroussi in an overtime thriller on Tuesday for their
fourth victory in Round II of the EuroCup to all but qualify for a place in the quarter-finals, and knock their Group J opponents from Greece out of the competition.

Last year's Superliga champions, Azovmash won 78-72 with point guard Khalid El-Amin pouring in 20 points.

El-Amin has been one of Azovmash's most valuable players, but he was almost the pariah in this game after his three-point attempt was off target with 24 seconds to play and the game knotted at 61-61.

Maroussi held on for a final shot, but Konstantinos Kaimakoglou missed with his potential game-winning three-ball and the game went to the extra period.

That's when Bosnia-Herzegovina international Kenan Bajramovic took over.

He scored the first four points of the overtime to put Azovmash in front for good.

Konstantinos Charalampidis made a pair of free throws to trim the deficit to 65-63, but Panagiotis Liadellis replied with a three-pointer as the Mariupol side stayed in front the rest of the way.

El-Amin led the scoring parade on five of 10 (50%) shooting from the floor, and he was a perfect eight of eight from the line.

From the arc, the 1.78m playmaker was two of four (50%).

It was from long distance where the Ukrainians really did a lot of damage, making nine of their 16 attempts (56.2%).

Renaldas Seibutis and Donya Abrams each had 17 points in defeat.
