GAME REPORT


Gottingen Run Over Den Bosch

BC Gottingen showed why they finished top of the pile in Group I by showing little mercy as they hammered Eiffel Towers Den Bosch 86-67 in Holland.

It was a game with little riding on it as Eiffel Towers were already eliminated while Gottingen had already sealed top spot.

Gottingen were led by Taylor Rochestie with 19 points and eight rebounds, with Ben Jacobson also finishing with 19 points, and Chris Oliver scoring 11 points and pulling down eight boards.

The hosts - who outscored Gottingen 30-22 in the final stanza - had David Janson as their top scorer on 15 points with Tristan Blackwood and Kees Akerboom adding 12 apiece.

The Germans led from tip to buzzer, scoring the first seven points of the game as Robert Kulawick drained a trey to open the scoring with Jason Boone and Oliver each scoring lay-ups as the visitors scored the first seven points of the game.

A Blackwood three-pointer did make it a three-point game with 4:43 on the clock, but it was Gottingen who went into the first break leading 25-8 following a Jacobson jumper.

The visitors scored the first four points of the second quarter to move further ahead, and John Little's lay-up sent them into the locker room 42-21 in front.

Kulawick opened the second half scoring and Gottingen's lead never dipped below 16 in the third period before an Oliver three-pointer sent the German team into the final break with a massive 64-37 lead and ending the game as any kind of contest.

COACH QUOTES


Quotes EiffelTowers Den Bosch vs. BG Göttingen

Stefan Wessels, EiffelTowers player:
"What can you say? Their pressure was relentless and took the energy out of us. It's hard to reenact that kind of pressure in practice. We also got killed on the boards."

Don Beck, EiffelTowers coach:
"I felt good about this game. But if you want to take them on, you have to do a reasonable job offensively, in defense and in rebounding. In the first quarter we didn't do any of the above. Add to that the fact we weren't hitting our shots and it spells disaster. I also don't think we have ever been outrebounded like this since I've taken the job at EiffelTowers. But you have to compliment Göttingen for their outstanding play this season."

Ben Jacobson, Göttingen player:
"We were off to a great start and took a commanding lead. As a leader of this team, I think it was very encouraging we came out to play and competed in a game that didn't mean anything in our way through."

John Patrick, Göttingen coach:
"Tonight we proved that full court pressure can work. We got extra shots early on because of our offensive boards. It was also a great shooting performance, with us hitting our threes better than our field goals. But, credit to Den Bosch for hitting some deep threes and fighting to the end."
