GAME REPORT


Harris Leads Dijon To Victory

21. Andre Harris (JDA Dijon)
Andre Harris paced Dijon with 17 points

Andre Harris scored 17 points as Dijon cruised to an 83-64 victory over Shoeters Den Bosch in Group A of the EuroChallenge.

The hosts took control with a 14-0 run in the second quarter and were rarely troubled thereafter as they improved to 2-1 in the group while handing the Dutch visitors their first defeat.

Den Bosch sharp-shooter David Gonzalvez shrugged off an injury to lead his team with 17 points but it was not enough to keep up with Dijon's multi-faceted attack.

Mykal Riley added 16 for the French side while Terrance Campbell had 15 and Ferdinand Prenom 13.

Dijon enjoyed a slight edge after a close first quarter before Den Bosch replied with back-to-back baskets from Gonzalvez and an Ali Farokhmanesh three-pointer to put them on top 26-25.

But Dijon responded to that with 14 straight points, highlighted by threes from Riley and Campbell, to lead by 13 on a pair of free throws from Sambou Traore.

That was effectively that, with Den Bosch only once getting the deficit back within single figures - a fleeting moment at 48-39 early in the second half - as Dijon kept things under near complete control.
