GAME REPORT


Enisey Step Closer to Last 16

11. Elmedin Kikanovic (BC Enisey)
Elmedin Kikanovic led scoring for BC Enisey with 19 points

BC Enisey have stepped closer to the Last 16 of EuroChallenge with a comprehensive 95-79 win over visitors Siauliai.

In an offensive-minded effort, Evgeny Kolesnikov sunk both his shots from the free-throw line with three-and-a-half minutes remaining in the opening frame, giving the Russian side a lead which they would not relinquish again.

The home team threatened to break 50 points within the opening 20 minutes, Donell Cooper's nine first-half assists helping Enisey to a 49-36 half-time buffer.

Enisey continued to watch their shots hit the mark in the second-half as their lead went out to as much as 26 points, thanks in no small part to their 54.5% shooting from the field and their ability to pounce on Siauliai's errors - 23 of their points coming off the turnover.

Big man Elmedin Kikanovic led the way for Enisey with a game-high 19 points on 7-for-12 shooting. Pavel Sergeev chipped in with 16 whilst Sava Lesic and Kolesnikov managed 12 apiece. Cooper finished with 11 assists.

Veteran shooting guard Gintaras Leonavicius finished with 15 points for the visitors.

Quotes: BC Enisey vs. BC Siauliai

Stevan Karadzic, Head Coach Enisey
"I would like to congratulate my players for a very good victory, and leave some special words for our magnificent fans, who helped us a lot today. I've tried to rotate my squad today as we have a really difficult schedule. Every player, who entered the court today, has been of great influence to our victory. I think we'll have enough time to prepare for a tough coming game in 3 days."

 

Fedor Kliuchnikov, Enisey
"We had a really good game in general. There have been some mistakes in defence, which let our opponents score some easy points. Nevertheless, we got the result and we are very happy about that."

 

Rolandas Alijevas, Siauliai
"It wasn't our day today. We were really tired as it is very difficult to play 12 hours after the long flight. Nothing we had planned worked."

 

Gediminas Petrauskas, Head Coach Siauliai
"As my player said, we were really tired because of the flight. Our heads weren't in the right place, we made silly mistakes and let our opponents score lots of easy points. Congratulations to Enisey, they were much better today."
