BC Alita stay at the bottom of Group A after a 53-62 defeat at home against STB Le Havre. It wasn't a game with many offensive highlights. In the first half both teams simply played badly.
The match consisted of so many missed shots and turnovers, that Alita and Le Havre scored in one half, what other teams scored in one period. The French side led 18-21 after two quarters.
In the second half things finally looked like Basketball. The home team suddenly started to hit and even took the lead. After the 3rd quarter BC Alita had build a 3 point advantage (40-37).
But the final period was all French Connection. Le Havre simply stopped making mistakes and so they turned the game. BC Alita just scored 13 points in the 4th quarter and now has lost 8 out of nine games in the FEL.
MVP of the game: Gary Alexander (Le Havre) with 19 points and 9 rebounds
