Oostende Beat Tartu But Fail To Progress


Base Oostende beat Tartu Rock 92-82 in the last EuroChallenge Group G game on Tuesday.

Both sides finished 2-4 and missed out on advancing to the Top 16  with group rivals Virtus Bologna (5-1)  and CSK-VVS Samara (3-3) instead reaching the next phase of the competition.

American guard Dontaye Draper of Oostende led all scorers with 27 points and he also dished out five assists.

Draper was seven of seven from inside the arc and also had an impact on the game with his defense, coming up with three steals.

The Belgians went into the break leading 47-39 but the visitors cut the deficit to 65-63 heading into the final quarter.

The hosts went on a 16-3 run over the next five minutes to lead 81-66 and never looked back.

Georgian international George Tsintsadze, an All-Star last season and member of the Tartu side that reached the EuroCup Final Four, had a team-high 20 points in defeat.

Tartu Rock outrebounded Base Oostende 36-28 but the hosts were superior shooting the ball on the night.

Oostende finished 35 of 60 (58.3%) from the floor while their opponents were a mere 27 of 67(40.2%).
