Cholet Ride Strong Start To Another Road Success


Cholet beat Belgacom Liege on Tuesday for their second successive road victory in the EuroChallenge Top 16.

Kevin Braswell's three-pointer gave the French outfit an early 5-4 lead and they kept their noses in front the rest of the way.

Cholet overcame a 27-point night from Christopher Hill, who hit seven three-pointers.

Rebounding wizard Randal Falker continued his fine play on the boards for Cholet. He pulled down 18 rebounds last week against Bonn and at Liege, he had 12 to go with his eight points.

Cholet won the battle of the boards 42-25.

Erman Kunter's men went in front by 11 points early in the third quarter but weren't able to press home the advantage and instead, Tom Johnson's Belgacom fought back to trail 51-49 after one of Hill's threes.

Vincent Grier began the fourth with a jump shot for Cholet and teammate Rodrigue Beaubois followed with a three-pointer for a 56-49 lead.

Belgacom got no closer than five points the rest of the way.
