GAME REPORT


Chalon Deliver Early Knockout Of Bonn

Elan Chalon followed up their Semaine des As triumph with an 88-66 drubbing of Telekom Baskets Bonn in the EuroChallenge Last 16 on Tuesday evening.

The German club went into the game with an opportunity to seal its place in the Quarter-Finals but wasn't up to the task in France.

Chalon blew Bonn out early, claiming a 27-9 lead by the end of the opening frame and taking a 43-25 advantage to half-time.

Blake Schilb, the MVP of the Semaine des As, had seven points in the opening frame for the hosts with France international Steed Tchicamboud and Malcolm Delaney contributing five apiece.

Chalon, who were led by Delaney's 18 points, were firmly in control for the rest of the game.

Both sides are now 3-2 in Group J ahead of Szolnoki Olaj and Okapi Aalstar (both 2-3).

The Quarter-Final spots from this group will not be decided until next week.

COACH QUOTES


Quotes Elan Chalon vs. Telekom Baskets

Telekom Baskets Head Coach Michael Koch
"There were two aspects, Chalon was tired of their win in the Semaine des As and stayed in the same intensity. What they did tonight is because they have a lot of talent, congratulations to Chalon and Greg."

Elan Chalon Head Coach Greg Beugnot
"It is not the same team we played in Bonn, I didn't recognize it. We stayed on our energy of winning the Semaine des As but we have an important game next Friday in the league and next week in Belgium, but I am happy because my team stayed within he objective we had at the beginning."

Telekom Baskets player Talor Battle
"Chalon played hard today, they shot a lot and put inside, we stayed all the time in the back and Chalon put so much intensity in the game."

Elan Chalon player Ilian Evtimov
"It is a mental game, we need to stay focus after our win in Semaine des As, we played hard, and not thinking we are tired. We played 4 games in 5 days. We didn't let them play their game, we put our intensity."
