BC Triumph Roll To Decisive Win In Amsterdam

BC Triumph claimed an important victory in their first game of the EuroChallenge Top 16 by winning on the road at EclipseJet MyGuide Amsterdam on Tuesday.

Askrabic had 12 of his points in the first half, with Pavel Sergeev also scoring nine of his 16 for the winners before the interval.

Though Amsterdam briefly cut the deficit to eight points at the beginning of the second half, they failed to put the clamps on Triumph who opened up a 69-47 lead by the end of third quarter.

COACH QUOTES


Quotes EclipseJet MyGuide vs. BC Triumph

Arik Shivek, Amsterdam Head Coach:

"This was a good lesson for us. My players aren't used to this type of physical games. We lost to a good team. I was even surprised that they played EuroChallenge. I don't think they will lose any of the next five matches."

Stanislav Erimine, Triumph Head Coach:

"We came to a good team with a good shot. We beat a good team. Although some people might think that we are favorites we still need to win every match."

Teddy Gipson, Amsterdam Player:

"We missed some layups and they punished us for it. I give them credit."

Ognjen Askrabic, Triumph Player:

"We made the easy points and our three-pointers fell at the right time. We made them change there defensive plan."
