27 November 2012
Sir Jason Clark (Okapi Aalstar)
The main force on offense for Okapi Aalstar: Jason Clark

Jason Clark had 25 points to lead Okapi Aalstar to a key win over Mons-Hainaut as the scrap for a last 16 berth continued in Group E of the EuroChallenge.

With both teams starting the night at 2-1 this was an opportunity to make a major move, and Clark ensured it was his team who would take it with some efficient shooting, making seven of 10 from the paint and eight of nine from the line.

After a battling first quarter, Okapi began to ease clear in the second quarter and a 12-0 run turned a tied game into a 48-36 lead on Derek Raivio's free throws shortly before half-time.

Clark hit the first points of the second half and Ryan Thompson followed it with a three-pointer as they went 53-39 clear, setting the tone for a third period that took the game away from Mons-Hainaut.

Back-to-back shots from Raivio late in the period made it 68-51 and the lead hit 20, 75-55, on Larry Anderson's jump-shot early in the fourth, with no way back for the visitors.

Thompson added 19 points for Okapi while Raivio and Christopher Young had 13 each, and Thomas Dreesen added 11.

Joshua Bostic led Mons-Hainaut with 20 points while Jonathan Wallace had 19 and Monwell Randle 17.
