GAME REPORT


Göttingen Crush Lokomotiv

Five players scored in double figures as MEG Gottingen cruised to a 92-71 win over winless Lokomotiv Kuban in Group A of the EuroChallenge.

Dwayne Anderson had 21 points and 10 rebounds, while Jason Boone also had a double-double with 13 points and 15 rebounds.

Christopher McNaughton and Taylor Rochestie added 14 apiece and Robert Kulawick had 12 points.
Göttingen wasted little time in stamping their authority on the game, with a dunk from McNaughton putting them up 23-8 after less than seven minutes.

Lokomotiv did at least manage to get the deficit back into single figures when Gerald Green hit a jump-shot early in the second quarter to make it 30-21, but they were never given much hope of getting back into the game.

Nebojsa Joksimovic and Jakov Vladovic led Lokomotiv with 15 points each, while Green finished with 11.

COACH QUOTES


Quotes MEG Göttingen vs. Lokomotiv Kuban

Sasho Filipovski, head coach BC Lokomotiv Kuban:
Congratulations to Göttingen. Bravo for a very good game. Göttingen plays very quick and very aggressive. They play also with heart and they are very tough. On our side it's difficult to win if you get 92 points and lose the rebounds. We gave up 22 offensive rebounds tonight. We missed some easy outside shots, but you can't win a game from the outside anyway. Basically, rebounds and defense are the keys to win a game.

Gerald Green, player BC Lokomotiv Kuban:
Congratulations to the German team. They played really good. They played defense, we didn't. You can't win a game if you give up 52 rebounds. You can't win a game at any level with that. We have to work hard in practice and focus on what we did wrong in this game. We have listen to what coach says. He is a great coach.

John Patrick, head coach MEG Göttingen:
I am very proud of the team. They played really hard. It was difficult for the team from Krasnodar to travel across Russia and Central Europe and come here to play a game. We were lucky they did not make some of their outside shots. It is not normal for Capin to miss all of his outside shots. We, on the other hand, had some hot hands in Robert Kulawick and Taylor Rochestie. Our rebounding was the key to success.
