GAME REPORT


Szolnoki Olaj Blow Out Pau Orthez

11. Obie Trotter (Szolnoki Olaj)
Obie Trotter and Szolnoki Olaj enjoyed a good start in the season as the guard had 14 points and 6 assists in the win

Szolnoki Olaj used a 26-point first quarter as a launch pad for a convincing victory in their EuroChallenge Regular Season opener against Pau Lacq Orthez on Tuesday.

The Hungarian team had a 14-point lead by the end of the initial frame and ended up winning, 85-70.

Julian Mills had 17 points and Hristo Nikolov 15 for Szolnoki, who had to come from behind in their Qualifying Round tie against Tampereen Pyrintö to make it into the Regular Season.

Orthez, who were led by Slaven Rimac's 22 points, trailed by 22 in the second quarter but never gave up and clawed their way back to within eight midway through the third quarter.

The lead ballooned to 15, though, by the end of the frame and they got no closer than 11 points in the last period.

Szolnoki Olaj won the rebounding battle, 41-27.

They had 12 three-pointers to just six for the French team.
