Dexia Lower Boom On Ural Great To Finish Top of B

29 January 2008

Dexia Mons-Hainaut hammered Ural Great 81-60 and beat them to first place in Group B in the process on Tuesday.

Great Britain national team point guard Michael Lenzly had 15 points to lead a balanced attack for the Belgian side.

Both outfits finished with 4-2 records, and Dexia claimed first place by winning their head-to-head tie-breaker with Ural Great with a +19 goal differential.

The pressure was off both teams as they entered the last round with Quarter Final Round places assured following last week's play.

Dexia, clearly, wanted to finish in first place and it was obvious early in the second quarter they were going to do just that when consecutive Roger Huggins jumper shots put them into a 30-13 lead.

The team from Perm did immediately shave seven points off that deficit to make it 30-22, but Dexia got the wind in their sails again and when Lenzly buried a three-pointer, they went too half-time on top, 42-26.

Ural Great had a strong start to the second half with a 10-0 run, capped by a Ralph Biggs lay-up.

But in a game of runs, it was Dexia's turn to go on another surge and James Potter's three-ball capped an 8-0 run for a 50-36 advantage.

In the fourth quarter, the advantage ballooned to 25 for Dexia and they cruised to victory.
