GAME REPORT


Ural Great Pound Telekom Baskets Bonn

Ural Great Perm bounced back from last week's defeat to SAOS Hyeres with an 82-54 demolition of Telekom Baskets Bonn in the EuroChallenge on Tuesday.

Vanja Plisnic poured in 20 points and Fedor Likholitov 15 for the winners.

The Russian team dominated the boards in the blowout, out-rebounding Bonn 38-23 with Likholitov pulling down a game-high 12.

They also connected on eight of 18 shots from behind the arc while Bonn drilled just two of 13.

The game was knotted at 30-30 late in the first half when Ural Great made their move.

Alexey Surovtsev hit a jump shot and Plisnic followed with a three-pointer to give the home side a 35-30 lead at half-time.

Likholitov opened the third quarter with a jump shot and Plisnic followed with another three-ball.

Ural Great went on to deliver the knockout.

Surovtsev continued the run with a three-pointer, Likholitov added another jumper and Plisnic made a lay-up to cap the 17-0 burst that Bonn never recovered from.

The German outfit managed to reduce the deficit to 59-47 early in the fourth quarter but got no closer and ended up losing by 28.

Brandon Bowman scored 11 points to lead Bonn, who had won their first game against Keravnos.

COACH QUOTES


Ural Great vs. Telekom Baskets Quotes

Roman Dvinyaninov, coach of Ural Great Perm:

 

"We had problems in the beginning of the game allowing 10 turnovers in the first quarter. But then we managed to find our game. We attacked successfully and stopped Telekom's offense."

Michael Koch, coach of Telekom Baskets Bonn:

"I am satisfied with the way my team played the first twenty minutes of the game. But after the break we stopped playing both defensively and offensively. We lacked concentration and let Ural Great score some easy baskets. We still have chances to qualify to the next round if we win our home wins and try to get at least one victory on the road."

Vanja Plisnic, forward of Ural Great Perm:

"I played much better today than I did in the previous games. Last Friday we had a very important win in the national championship and it brought us confidence."
