No Masking The Fact De Colo Boosts Cholet


Cholet Basket will have their biggest weapon available this weekened in the EuroChallenge Final Four with Nando De Colo on court again after suffering a broken nose.

The French international picked up the injury in Cholet's Game 3 decider against BC Kyiv and hit the sidelines but he returned for the LNB game against ASVEL and gave his team an emotional lift in a 69-66 win.

De Colo wore a protective mask and scored 18 points against the league leaders.

"Personally, I think the mask is not practical, but that's how it goes," he said. "For the moment, I do not yet go for the contact, I try to take open shots."

Cholet will take on BC Triumph in one EuroChallenge Semi-Final in Bologna while hosts Virtus BolognaFiere will go up against Proteas EKA AEL in the other.
