EclipseJet MyGuide Down Dexia To Go Second


EclipseJet MyGuide Amsterdam moved into second place in Group L of the EuroChallenge Top 16 with an impressive 87-75 home triumph over Dexia Mons-Hainaut.

The Dutch side is now 2-1 while Dexia, who endured a late collapse last week at BC Triumph, are 1-2.

The Amsterdammers took the lead for good late in the third quarter when Clint Harrison and Tamien Trent hit back-to-back three-pointers for a 56-50 advantage.

After Dexia trimmed the deficit to 58-54 by the end of the frame, Harrison began the final quarter with another three as the Dutch team went in front by seven.

Harrison ended up making four of six shots from behind the arc and led the winners with 22 points.

Teddy Gipson contributed 20, Orien Greene 16 and Peter van Paassen 12 with eight rebounds.

Caleb Green finished with 19 points for Dexia.
