GAME REPORT


Tartu Share The Ball To Defeat ETHA

Tartu University Rock were able to keep pace with BC Khimik at the top of Group L as they enjoyed a 67-55 road win over ETHA Engomi in the FIBA Europe Cup.

 

Turning Point: ETHA jumped out to a 22-7 lead in the first quarter and appeared to have the visitors on the ropes. But a stunning 22-2 run in the second period saw Tartu go from 24-9 down to 31-26 up, and they never trailed again, slowly increasing their lead throughout the second half.

 

Stats Don't Lie: Tartu did not enjoy their best shooting night but kept creating good looks and had 17 assists to just four for ETHA. They also out-rebounded their hosts 47-34, including 15 on the offensive end, to keep giving themselves another look.

 

Game Hero: The tireless Evaldas Zabas was on court for just shy of 37 minutes, and scored 18 points while collecting seven rebounds for Tartu. He also had three steals.

 

The Bottom Line: Tartu go to 2-0 to keep pace with BC Khimik, but ETHA remain winless and their match with Juventus Utena next week will be a fight to avoid being cut off completely.
