Enisey Turn Back Tartu To Get Off The Mark

13 January 2016
FIBA EUROPE CUP

Enisey Krasnoyarsk almost squandered a 20-point lead over Tartu University Rock but finished strong to re-build it and celebrate an ultimately comfortable 87-68 victory at home, their first after three games in Round of 32 Group R.

 

Turning Point: Tartu clawed their way back in the third quarter and reduced the gap to 63-58 at the start of the fourth, when Enisey decided it was time to halt their visitors' surge. Travis Taylor sunk a jumper to spark a blistering 18-3 burst and the hosts restored the 20-point gap, 81-61, with only 2:21 remaining to play.

 

Stats Don't Lie: Enisey won the rebounding battle on both ends (42-30) and ran in the open floor at every half chance they got, scoring 19 points on the fast-break and several more in secondary transition.

 

Game Hero: Whenever David Kennedy comes up with an all-round display good things happen for Enisey and Wednesday's clash was not an exception. The American small forward collected a double-double of 19 points and 10 boards, also adding five assists and four drawn fouls.

 

The Bottom Line: Enisey improved to 1-2 and third place in the FIBA Europe Cup Round of 32 Group R, behind Foxtown Cantu (2-1). Tartu dropped to 0-3 and remain in last place in the group, but still maintain mathematical chances to advance.
