Bader Fires Szolnoki Olaj Past Keravnos
A near perfect shooting performance by forward Marton Bader helped Szolnoki Olaj cruise into the EuroChallenge regular season and follow up their demolition of Keravnos in game one with a 67-56 road win in Cyprus.
The Hungarian club already had one foot in the door when they took to the floor in Nicosia after routing their opponents 75-52 in the first leg and they again put the defensive squeeze on their opponents.
Most impressive of all however was the offensive display of Bader. Only one missed free-throw stopped him from having a flawless night.
He finished with 25 points in just 26 minutes making seven of seven from the floor and 11 of 12 from the line.
Defensively it was Ivory Clark who kept his team in control with some super work on the glass. He finished with 11 defensive rebounds to his name to ensure second chance points were rare for the home team. They again lacked any serious firepower and could only muster 9 final quarter points.
It wasn't all plain sailing for the visitors and Head Coach Peter Por might be slightly less than impressed with the 22 turnovers his team spilled during the game.
Nevertheless, they romped home by a massive 34 points on aggregate.
