GAME REPORT


Göttingen Top Proteas In Scoring Fest

BG Göttingen topped Proteas EKA AEL 97-90 in a EuroChallenge Last 16 shootout.

Jason Boone had 20 points and collected 11 rebounds to lead six Göttingen players who scored in double figures, while Proteas had four of their own as the shots kept falling at both ends.

Proteas made 22 of 35 (62.8%) from two-point range and an even more impressive nine of 15 (60%) from beyond the arc, but paid the price for sloppy handling as their 30 turnovers - compared to 13 for Göttingen - gave the visitors too many shooting chances.

Ben Jacobson had 18 points for the winners, while Taylor Rochestie add 16 and Chris Oliver, Robert Kulawick and Christopher McNaughton added 10 each.

Giannis Giannoulis led Proteas with 23 points, while Iilan Evtimov had 16, Quincy Taylor 13 and Jeremiah Davis 10.
