Strong Third Quarter Pushes Ural Great Past Bonn

07 January 2009

Ural Great Perm hit the Group B summit in the EuroChallenge and clinched a spot in the Top 16 with a 70-64 triumph at Telekom Baskets Bonn.

The Russian outfit improved to 4-1 with the victory.

Trailing 37-34 early in the third quarter, Darius Vashington scored four points in a 6-0 run that put the Ural Great in front for good.

The Perm side went on to outscore Telekom Baskets 24-10 in the third quarter and stayed in front for the remainder of the game.

Alexey Surovtsev scored 25 points for Ural Great, who overcame a woeful eight of 16 effort at the free throw line to win.

Telekom Baskets hurt their own cause at the charity stripe, making only 17 of 28 (60.7%).

Brandon Kyle Bowman finished with 18 points, six rebounds and four assists for Bonn, who fell to 2-3 but can still advance to the Top 16 with a good result at SAOS Hyeres in their final group game.

The German outfit won the first meeting between the sides back on December 10, 71-61.

SAOS Hyeres will go into the game with three wins and two defeats.
