Berzins, Efejuku Lead Ventspils Rout


Arturs Berzins and Oritseweyinmi Efejuku teamed up to power a 104-69 BK Ventspils rout of the Norrkoping Dolphins in EuroChallenge Group K.

Berzins poured in 27 points, adding nine rebounds, while Efejuku had 26 and eight assists in the lop-sided win.

The Dolphins had jumped out to a 7-2 run at the start, but it was all Ventspils thereafter, and they pulled away, using an 18-0 run that spanned the first two quarters to go up 41-19 with 7:53 until half-time.

The Dolphins never even got within 20 points during the second half as Ventspils continued to pour it on.

The visitors were doing their best to keep it respectable, and clawed away at the lead, with Oladapo Ayuba's jump-shot making it 86-62 with 4:49 to go.

But Ventspils finished on a 14-5 run to spread it on thick.

Rashad Anderson added 17 points for the victors.

Ayuba led the Dolphins with 17 points, while Andrew Mitchell had 13 and Joakim Kjellborn added 10.

Ventpils improve to 3-2 but still trail BCM Gravelines Dunkerque in the standings, while the Dolphins drop to 1-4.
