Telestet Maroussi Athens 86 ECM Nymburk 70

11 November 2003

After three straight losses Maroussi Telestet got its second victory in the FIBA Europe League tonight, at home over Czech outfit Nymburk and kept their hopes of qualifying to the next round alive.

The absence of 206 cm forward Andre Hutson did not seem to effect Maroussi, as they dominated on the boards (34 rebounds to 22 for Nymburk). Strong rebounding gave the home side plenty of fast break opportunities and they were able to convert 11/13.

US guard Roderick Blakney was the key distributor for Maroussi and his 8 assists got his team flowing, and helped 5 players to score in double figures.

For all of Maroussi’s strong play, Nymburk had cut the led to 4-points at the end of the 3rd quarter, 56:52.

A 10-0 run from the Greeks quickly put an end to the challenge and Maroussi held on for a comfortable win.

Blakney had his best game so far in the FEL, netting 19 points (6/8) shooting to go with his 8 assists.

Ashante Johnson was Nymburk’s to points scorer with 14.
