GAME REPORT


Banvit Pull Away From Okapi

Banvit BC clinched first place in Group F of the EuroChallenge with a 99-84 drubbing of winless Okapi Aalstar.

Baris Özcan led the way with 24 points and Keith Simmons contributed 22 as Banvit rolled to their fifth win in the competition.

Should FMP also finish 5-1, Banvit would finish first by virtue of a better goal differential in their two meetings.

The game was tied late in the second quarter when four straight Simmons free-throws and a three-point play by Baris Ermis gave Banvit a 45-38 advantage.

Okapi kept the game close with Damon Huffman's lay-up reducing the arrears to 53-52 with 6:15 remaining in the third quarter.

Simmons connected from behind the arc and followed with a jumper before Özcan nailed a three-ball for a 64-52 Banvit lead.

They led by double digits the rest of the way.

Brian Greene finished with 26 points for Okapi (0-6), who were 13 of 24 from long range but turned the ball over 17 times in the game.
