GAME REPORT


BC Triumph Win All-Russian Showdown In Samara

BC Triumph Lyubertsy tore CSK-VVS to shreds in Samara on Tuesday for their third win in as many EuroChallenge Top 16 games.

Stanislav Eremine's team, which had a thrilling comeback win last week at home to Dexia Mons-Hainaut, rolled to an 81-65 victory at CSK-VVS.

Triumph made 21 of their 33 shots inside the arc, and a very impressive 10 of 22 beyond it.

Ernest Bremer's 23 points led visitors while Marque Perry finished with a game-high 26 in defeat.

CSK-VVS, who are now 0-3 in the Top 16, went in front briefly at the beginning of the game but a Sergey Toporov three-ball then put the visitors in front to stay.

After Alexander Miloserdov buried a jumper, Toporov added another basket for a 10-4 lead.

CSK-VVS tried to stay in touch but gradually fell away and a Bremer three-ball allowed Triumph to go in front 33-17.

The hosts got no closer than nine points the rest of the way.

COACH QUOTES


Quotes CSK-VVS vs. BC Triumph

BC Triumph coach, Stanislav Eremin:
"We were a bit lucky that two key players of Samara couldn't play. But for today we also had problems with the team roster. Samara are is known for their tough character but their play is unstable. In the first quarter we played good defense and put a gap [between us]. We didn't handle Perry but in total the game was easier for us than I thought."

BC Triumph Player, Sergey Toporov:
"The team won today and that's the main thing. In the offense we didn't handle Marque Perry but it is better for one opponent to score 26 points [against us] but the team still win by 20 points than the opposite."

CSK VVS-Samara Head Coach, Valeriy Tikhonenko:
"The main reason of the defeat  is the absence of two of our key players, the injured Sullivan and the food poisoned Demeshkin; no doubt they could have helped us. We recently played Triumph in the Russian League and looked very good, I think, and could have won [that]. Today I had to break the set and let Vladimir Filippov play on four. This is a bit unusual for us."

CSK VVS-Samara player, Gennady Zelenskiy:
"The reason of the defeat I think was our many turnovers from which they scored so many easy points. Besides we didn't handle Bremer who not only scored a lot but he also gave out many assists."
