GAME REPORT


RheinEnergie Reign Supreme Against Gran Canaria

Gran Canaria are facing the difficult task of having to win a road game next week to assure themselves of a place in Round II of the EuroCup after falling at RheinEnergie Koln in Group B on Tuesday.

The German team won 78-66 for their fourth victory in five games, while the Canary Islanders slipped to 3-2 in the competition.

They have a game at Basket Groot Leuven next week.

Should they lose, and BC Zadar upset RheinEnergie, the two sides will have 3-3 records but the Croatian team will advance with a superior goal average in the direct games against Gran Canaria.

They split their two games with Gran Canaria.

RheinEnergie are definitely in the next phase.

They have Immanuel McElroy and Glenn McGowan to thank for their fourth win in five contests as they combined to score 48 points - McGowan had a game-high 26 points - in the win over Gran Canaria.

McElroy also had nine rebounds and seven assists.

It is a miracle and I am very, very glad
Sasa Obradovic
RheinEnergie coach Sasa Obradovic could hardly believe his team won by the margin they did against a team from Spain's ACB.

"It is a miracle and I am very, very glad," he said. "I didn´t expect such an easy victory against a Spanish team.

"The team started and played the whole game with a great determination."

Salva Maldonado, the Gran Canaria coach, said: "Cologne played much stronger and with more intensity.

"We couldn´t handle the pressure and I am impressed with their American players - they did a very good job today!"
