GAME REPORT


Kyiv Hit Century In Big Win

14. Michael Davis (BC Kyiv)
Kyiv's Michael Davis finished the game with 18 points and 12 boards

BC Kyiv hit triple figures as they demolished Kormend 102-64 to end their EuroChallenge Group D campaign on a high note.

Both teams had already seen their hopes of progressing dashed, but Kyiv did not let that stop them enjoying the final group game as six players scored in double figures.

Kormend had won the reverse fixture 103-99 - but this time it was almost one-way traffic in the second half.

After a fairly even start that saw the teams trading blows until the mid-point of the second quarter, Kyiv revealed they had several extra gears and left the visitors trailing in their wake.

Vladyslav Podolyan's three capped a 12-3 run that made it 37-27 with 5:25 to go in the second quarter and by the time Lee Humphrey sank a three-pointer just before half-time the advantage was 54-35.

The lead grew to 30 when Vyacheslav Bobrov's jump-shot made it 78-48 with 2:54 left in the third period and although the result was long since known, Kyiv kept pushing to the end, reaching triple figures when Pavlo Krutous sank a three with 34 seconds left.

Ruslan Otverchenko led the way with 19 points while Humphrey and Michael Davis had 18 each.
Podolyan and Bobrov had 13 points each with Vladyslav Kondratyev adding 10.

Muhammad El-Amin led Kormend's weak resistance with 21 points while Zarko Rakocevic added 17.

COACH QUOTES


Quotes BC Kyiv vs. Inkognito Fashion Körmend BC

Körmend Head Coach Tamas Hencsey
"Congratulations on the victory to Kyiv. I think we had a good first quarter and our opponents were leading only by one point after it. But in the second quarter Kyiv made a lot of easy three-point shots, our zone defence did not work. We had 24 rebounds, Kyiv collected 42 rebounds. I told my team that we have to play 100% today and even though it was our last game in the EuroChallenge it may help us in the national championship, but something has gone wrong today. It is difficult to say what the reason was for that."

Körmend Player Muhammad El-Amin
"We played well in the first quarter but the second quarter was different. We were not aggressive enough and let Kyiv make easy shots."

Kyiv Head Coach Vitaliy Cherniy
"Congratulations to my team for this victory, each player did his job very well, each element, each moment was worked out. We made a lot of open shots and this is the result of everyday work so for us it is not a miracle. Congratulations to our fans as well. If we had a couple more games in the EuroChallenge Kyiv could qualify to the next round."

Kyiv Player Vladyslav Podolyan
"It was a good game, we tried our best, made a lot of successful shots and you see the result. I really enjoyed the game today."
