Karasev Leads Triumph Past Edirne

22 November 2011

Sergey Karasev erupted for a season-high 21 points as Triumph Lyubertsy beat Olin Edirne in the EuroChallenge on Tuesday.

A player at the U18 All-Star Game at the EuroBasket, Karasev made seven of his eight shots from the floor to help fire the Russian team to a 70-61 win.

Triumph won for the third time in as many Group F encounters and dropped their Turkish opponents to 0-3.

Edirne, fresh off their upset of Besiktas in the BEKO Basketbol Ligi, hit 11 of their 23 shots from the arc but just 23 of 56 from the floor overall.

The visitors led by six early in the game and were knotted at 22-22 midway through the second quarter.

Karasev went to the free-throw line with 3:57 to play in the second quarter and made both attempts for his first two points of the contest.

Kyle Landry followed with a jumper to stretch the lead to four.

After 24-year-old Serbian center Vladimir Stimac replied with a basket for Edirne, Karasev went to the other end and connected from the arc.

Karasev ended up scoring nine points in the frame and Triumph went to half-time in front, 34-28.

A jumper by Landry after the restart and then back-to-back jump shots from Karasev stretched the advantage to 40-28.

The hosts went in front by 16 in the third quarter.

Edirne managed to reduce the deficit to 56-51 with 6:28 to play, but Tywain McKee followed with four straight points for Triumph as they stayed comfortably ahead.

Stimac finished with 18 points and 10 rebounds in defeat for Edirne, who will be looking to win their remaining three games in Group F to have a chance of progressing to the next phase of the competition.
