Elan Chalon Edge Cedevita To Go Top


Elan Chalon edged Cedevita Zagreb 80-77 to climb into the top two spots in Group D of the EuroChallenge.

Taj Allen Gray had 24 points and eight rebounds for the French team, which can claim the group's top spot if it wins next week at home to Proteas EKA AEL in a battle of teams with 3-2 records.

Zagreb and Dexia are 2-3 and still have an outside chance to qualify to the Last 16.

One of the biggest plays in Tuesday's contest came with seven seconds remaining.

Blake Schilb made the first of two free-throws to give Elan Chalon a 78-76 lead but missed the second.

Cedevita failed to box out Gray, who grabbed the offensive rebound and drew a foul.

He made one of two for a three-point lead.

Elan Chalon fouled Jermaine Anderson and the Canada point guard missed the first free-throw but made the second.

Cedevita fouled to stop the clock and Schilb made one more free-throw for the one-point triumph.
