GAME REPORT


Bourges Breeze Past Brno With Ease

8. Styliani Kaltsidou (Bourges Basket)
Styliani Kaltsidou led all scorers with 17 points

Bourges will head into the EuroLeague Women play-offs with real momentum after posting a powerful display from tip to buzzer in Group A to complete an 85-60 blowout of BK Imos Brno.

Their fourth win in the last five games, the French club were rampant from the outset after a swashbuckling 26-12 first quarter left the visitors trailing in their wake.

Whilst Brno tried desperately to recover the situation, they could make little impression during the second quarter and consequently were 45-31 behind as they sought some respite at the break.

Things didn't improve when they emerged for the second half as Bourges piled on the agony, teenage center Christelle Diallo making it 64-44.

An excellent night of work from the home side was then rounded off in the best possible way as Celine Dumerc finished the scoring from downtown.

Bourges' superiority was underlined by five players reaching double digits, with Styliani Kaltsidou scoring a game-high 17 points.

Emmeline Ndongue added 14 points and eight rebounds, whilst Dumerc harvested 12 points and seven assists.

Nicole Ohlde top scored for Brno with 16 points.

COACH QUOTES


Quotes: Bourges Basket - BK IMOS Brno

BK IMOS Brno head coach Jan Bobrovsky
"Bourges was better today, they have better statistic on all lines. We didn't play with sufficient intensity and concentration. I'm not happy with my players. We had better moments during the second half but it was against Bourges' bench. Congratulations to Bourges."

BK IMOS Brno player Barbora Kasparkova
"It was a difficult game for us, Bourges played better than us. [There is] nothing more to say. Congratulations to Bourges."

Bourges Basket head coach Valerie Garnier
"We had a good start and we kept the goal average [the same] throughout the game, so it's a good game. Maybe one thing - we lost too many defensive rebounds. But I'm very happy with the team. We are good on all of the statistic lines. I am especially happy we only turned over eight balls. We are happy to finish the first phase with no losses at home."

Bourges Basket player Emeline Ndongue
"We were [already] qualified, but as with each game, we play to win with the best goal average. We put the same intensity and concentration into every game. We have a very good trust in each other and it allows us to be very aggressive in defence."
