BC Triumph Win All-Russian Showdown In Samara


BC Triumph Lyubertsy tore CSK-VVS to shreds in Samara on Tuesday for their third win in as many EuroChallenge Top 16 games.

Stanislav Eremine's team, which had a thrilling comeback win last week at home to Dexia Mons-Hainaut, rolled to an 81-65 victory at CSK-VVS.

Triumph made 21 of their 33 shots inside the arc, and a very impressive 10 of 22 beyond it.

Ernest Bremer's 23 points led visitors while Marque Perry finished with a game-high 26 in defeat.

CSK-VVS, who are now 0-3 in the Top 16, went in front briefly at the beginning of the game but a Sergey Toporov three-ball then put the visitors in front to stay.

After Alexander Miloserdov buried a jumper, Toporov added another basket for a 10-4 lead.

CSK-VVS tried to stay in touch but gradually fell away and a Bremer three-ball allowed Triumph to go in front 33-17.

The hosts got no closer than nine points the rest of the way.
