GAME REPORT


Fantastic Five For The Red Wings

12. Andre Smith (Krasnye Krylia)
Andre Smith was the top scorer for Krasnye Krylia

Krasnye Krylia made light work of continuing their perfect start in EuroChallenge Group B after they racked up a fifth straight success with a comfortable 97-72 success against CSU Asesoft Poliesti.

The hosts were rampant from tip to buzzer, their superiority highlighted by the fact that no fewer than seven players reached double digits.

Andre Smith led the way, making seven of nine from the floor, and top scoring with 16 points as the Russians showcased their strength in depth.

There was little doubt about the result after a red-hot start to the game by the home team, who raced into a commanding 24-10 first quarter lead.

Whilst the visitors competed much better during the second period, Krasnye Krylia put their foot back on the accelerator after the interval, outscoring their opponents 26-15 during the third quarter.

That effectively decided the contest ten minutes ahead of schedule, and especially with Aaron Miles pulling the strings to great effect, dishing up seven assists for the winning team.

Robert Nyakundi stood out for the losing team with a creditable 16-point haul.

COACH QUOTES


Quotes Krasnye Krylia vs. CSU Asesoft Ploiesti

Krasnye Krylia head coach Sergei Bazarevich:
"It was clear that our team was stronger. But I had some worries that our players might relax a little during the game. I think that intrigue was taken off at the very beginning of the game. Even though we are progressing from the group, we will consider what tasks to solve in the next game against Kataja."

Krasnye Krylia player Yuri Vasilyev:
"After a home game loss against UNICS in the VTB League, we wanted to apologize to our fans with this game. This year we had games in which we have been losing a big advantage in the score. But we prepared ourselves well for the game with Ploiesti. And now we will prepare for the next match."

Ploiesti head coach Vladimir Arnautovic:
"I would like to forget this game as soon as possible. This match could not affect the situation in the EuroChallenge neither to our team, nor to Krasnye Krylia. But still I expected a better game in defense of my players. We have been turning the ball over and let our opponent get easy points."

Ploiesti player Virgil Stanescu:
"It is hard to say anything after such an unfortunate game, although we knew that it is a strong opponent, and Krasnye Krylia took it seriously and reached their goal. But we also came to Samara to play hard, did not consider it just a voyage."
