First Half Showing Helps FMP Past Dragons

26 January 2010
BC FMP tore apart Artland Dragons in the first half of their EuroChallenge Last 16 clash on Tuesday before settling for an 86-80 victory.

FMP'S Nemanja Protic led a balanced scoring attack in the Group J game with 19 points while Predrag Samardziski distinguished himself with a double-double for the Serbian team.

He finished with 13 points and 11 rebounds.

Both sides went into the game on a high after prevailing in five of their six Regular Season games.

The Belgrade team stormed into a 33-13 lead by the end of the opening quarter and went in front by 22 in the second before taking a 52-34 advantage to half-time.

Artland tried to claw their way back and managed to reduce the deficit to nine on three occasions in the third quarter before heading to the fourth trailing 75-63.

FMP maintained their concentration and seemed to always be in control.

Artland never gave up and a three-pointer by Nathan Peavy in the waning seconds closed the gap to 86-80.

That's how it finished.

Alexander Seggelke ended up with 18 points and six rebounds for Artland.
