|Terrell Stoglin chipped in with 13 points for Cholet Basket|
Cholet Basket's 75-67 victory over ZZ Leiden in their EuroChallenge Group G clash on Tuesday night was cause for celebration in Cholet, as well as in Aarhus, Denmark.
The victory puts Cholet in the Last 16 whilst additionally, on account of their 68-66 win over 2013 quarter-finalists Kataja Basket earlier in the evening, coupled with Cholet's win, Bakken Bears Aarhus also advance at the expense of ZZ Leiden and Kataja Basket.
As they have in the previous two weeks, ZZ Leiden responded defiantly to having their backs pressed against the wall, keeping in the game up until the last 50 seconds.
Despite having trailed by 11 with under seven to play, Sean Cunningham responded by striking down the next four points to set off a late revival which ended with a Worthy De Jong two-pointer and Leiden only trailing by three.
But the calm-as-they-come Terrel Stoglin steadied the visitor's ship, following up a pair from the charity stripe from Lamayn Wilson by making three-from-four of his own from the same spot to put the lead back out to a more comfortable eight points.
Rudy Jomby once more shone for Cholet with 18 points and 8 boards. Wilson delivered with 16 points, John Cox filled out his stat line nicely with 11 points, 6 assists and 6 rebounds, whilst Stoglin had 13 points.
Joshua Duinker had 8 rebounds and 19 points for the home team.
