GAME REPORT


Red Wings Clipped At Triumph

Triumph Lyubertsy rolled to a 94-71 victory in the first leg of their EuroChallenge Qualifying Round tie on Tuesday night against fellow Russians Krasnye Krylia.

Behind 26-22 with 40 seconds to play in the opening quarter, Triumph took over.

They got four straight free-throws by Dmitry Kulagin to knot the game and a pair of Victor Zvarykin three-point plays at the start of the second quarter completed the 10-0 spurt.

The bleeding for the Red Wings didn't stop.

After Evgeny Kolesnikov split a pair of free-throws for the visitors, Kulagin buried a three-ball to start a 14-0 run that left the hosts on top, 46-27.

The visitors managed to reduce the arrears to 52-39 by half-time.

They then ended up blowing out a side coached by Sergey Bazarevich that Triumph boss Valdemaras Chomicius had been so complimentary of beforehand.

COACH QUOTES


Quotes Triumph Lyubertsy vs. Krasnye Krylia

BC Triumph coach Valdemaras Chomicius:
"I'm satisfied with the result, but it's only half way in the Qualifying Round for us, so I can't be absolutely happy with the win. I think that we were successful in sticking to our plans for the game, and we withstood he difficulties [of the game] and the aggressive game of our rival."

Krasnye Krylia Samara coach Sergey Bazarevich:
"There are many reasons for this result. But first of all we were tired mentally and physically, I asked my team to have patience, to try their best, but we were not able [to do this]. This is, at the beginning of the season we have to play in the Qualifying Round of two tournaments - it is like the play-offs, but only at the beginning of the season. I also believe that Triumph had more luck tonight."
