Orthez No Obstacle For Artland

22 November 2011

Artland Dragons remained unbeaten in the EuroChallenge with an 87-81 triumph over Pau Lacq Orthez.

Adam Hess led the German club with 21 points in the Group H game.

Artland hit 12 of 22 shots from long range with Hess an impressive four of six.

The victory looked as if it would be far more comprehensive than it ended up being because with 7:47 to go, Artland had an 83-62 lead.

Orthez, being urged on by their new coach Laurent Vila, held them to just four points the rest of the way and lost by just six with Jean-Frederic Morency hitting a three-pointer two seconds from the end.

Roared on by their home crowd, the Dragons opened up a 49-30 half-time advantage.

Orthez pulled to within 70-57 late in the third on a three-pointer by Florian Lesca, but David Holston replied in kind to stretch the Dragons lead back to 16.

Chinemelu Elonu led Orthez, who fell to 0-3, with 19 points.
