GAME REPORT

27.11.2012
SLUC Nancy Ease To Big Win
13. Bingo Merriex (SLUC Nancy)
15 points against Apollon for SLUC Nancy: Bingo Merriex

A huge crowd of 5,000 roared on SLUC Nancy to an 87-69 win that keeps them in the hunt in Group G of the EuroChallenge.

The hosts used a huge first-half performance to take complete control of the game and won it at a canter.

Although Apollon scored the opening five points of the game, that would be their only lead of the contest, Nancy coming to life with an 11-2 run capped by Shawn King's dunk, the first of two in quick succession from the big center.

That early deficit was a distant memory by the time they ended the first quarter up 25-15, and it only got worse for the visitors with back-to-back threes from Kenny Grant making it 34-15 two minutes into the second period.

When Grant split a pair of free throws to end the first half, the lead was 50-27.

Nancy could afford to ease off thereafter as Apollon made minor inroads to the lead, with an 8-0 spurt cutting it to 52-40 on Brandon Brown's free throws before threes from Bingo Merriex and Nicholas Pope carried Nancy clear once more.

Grant led Nancy with 16 points while Merriex had 15, Marcellus Sommerville 12 and Souleymane Diabate 11.

Gerald Robinson had 18 points for Apollon with Brown collecting 17, Marvin Jefferson and Grigoris Pantouris 10 each.

COACH QUOTES

27.11.2012
Quotes SLUC Nancy vs. Pizza Express Apollon

Apollon player Grigoris Pantouris
"We need to play more as a team, we have changed many players in the line-up. Nancy is a good club in Europe, and we did what we could. Congratulations to Nancy."

Limassol head coach Chris Chougaz
"The first half was very hard for us, we weren't ready. We also had many problems with injuries before the game. One less big guy and everything is different. And it's not easy to play the Cypriot Championship and the EuroChallenge at the same time. In the second half we had more the spirit of fighters."

Nancy player Kenny Grant
"
We played a total match, as from the first minutes, we managed to control Brown, we did a good job. It's important to win at home. We had few turnovers. We imposed our rhythm, and it helped us to score."

Nancy head coach Jean Luc Monschau
"As a whole we played a good match, we did what we had to do. It was a favourable day because Gravelines won in Minsk. The game was pleasant, the next match day will be decisive for qualification. Unfortunately we lost Shawn King and we don't know how long he will be unavailable.

COACH QUOTES

27.11.2012
Quotes SLUC Nancy vs. Pizza Express Apollon

Apollon player Grigoris Pantouris
"We need to play more as a team, we have changed many players in the line-up. Nancy is a good club in Europe, and we did what we could. Congratulations to Nancy."

Limassol head coach Chris Chougaz
"The first half was very hard for us, we weren't ready. We also had many problems with injuries before the game. One less big guy and everything is different. And it's not easy to play the Cypriot Championship and the EuroChallenge at the same time. In the second half we had more the spirit of fighters."

Nancy player Kenny Grant
"
We played a total match, as from the first minutes, we managed to control Brown, we did a good job. It's important to win at home. We had few turnovers. We imposed our rhythm, and it helped us to score."

Nancy head coach Jean Luc Monschau
"As a whole we played a good match, we did what we had to do. It was a favourable day because Gravelines won in Minsk. The game was pleasant, the next match day will be decisive for qualification. Unfortunately we lost Shawn King and we don't know how long he will be unavailable.
