THE TAKE

FoxTown Cantu opens its Eurocup campaign in front of its faithful fans, relying on the usual suspects - scorer Pietro Aradori, center Marco Cusin and forward Maarty Leunen – to carry the load. The hosts also count on contributions from their rookies, Joe Ragland and Michael Jenkins on the perimeter, while Marcel Jones and Adrian Uter help from forward spots. Diminutive playmaker David Holston will run Artland’s offense, dishing it out to backcourt partners Antonio Graves and Brandon Thomas. Visitors’ frontcourt starts with Anthony King ruling the paint, while forward Lawrence Hill and center Ken Frease provide Artland with plenty of size inside.

Quotes Head Coaches

SACRIPANTI, STEFANO
FoxTown Cantu
"We are in a very balanced group where every team has real chances to reach the second round. So every game is crucial, especially the home games. Tomorrow we’ll play against a competitive team with a starting five completely composed of American players. We can’t permit to Artland Dragons to play his game, but we have to put on the court a big intensity on defense."
McCOY, TYRON
Artland Dragons Quakenbrueck
"It's gonna be a very tough game. Cantu played in the Euroleague last season and reached the semifinals of the Italian league. They have very good perimeter players that can score, especially Michael Jenkins, who we know from his time at Tübingen, and Joe Ragland. We will have to play very good defense and controll their guards to win this game."

Players

LEUNEN, MAARTEN
FoxTown Cantu
"I’m very excited for this new adventure in Eurocup, the first European experience with me as captain of Pallacanestro Cantù. We played Euroleague in the last two year so we know that in Europe the competition is stronger and there is a different way to play with more aggressiveness. I don’t know many things about Artland Dragons, but we are perfectly aware of their good start in German championship. For this reason is clear that Wednesday will be a tough game."
FREASE, KENNETH
Artland Dragons Quakenbrueck
"I am excited to play in a European competition for the first time in my career. I don't think it will be a lot harder than in the German League, because we have a really good competition here in Germany. We have a chance to beat any team, because we have a lot of offensive potential and if we play good defense we can compete with anybody."
Pietro Aradori - CantuFoxTown Cantu rallied from a double-digit deficit to pull out 88-86 win over Artland Dragons Quakenbrueck in Group A on Wednesday. The visitors led throughout the first half, and still held 10-point advantage in the third quarter, but Pietro Aradori led Cantu's comeback in the third, and Adrian Uter in the fourth quarter to give the hosts 77-64 lead they managed to hold on to until the final buzzer. Aradori finished with 28 points and Uter scored 25 in victory. Anthony King led Artland with 19 points, Lawrence Hill had 17, and Keneth Frease 10 in defeat.

Artland got the better start in the game, led by King opened up 8-16 lead after 10 minutes, and margin reached double-digits at the start of the second. Cantu replied with a 14-2 spurt that put them up 22-20, but the visitors made another run, with King and Hill helped them regain 26-36 advantage, and go into halftime up 32-39. After the break, the hosts started to cut the deficit after a midway-point of the third quarter, and Aradori hit a triple and a jumper to put Cantu in front 61-59 after three quarters. The hosts took control of the things at the start of the fourth quarter, putting together an 11-0 run with Adrian Uter leading the way, and building 77-64 advantage. Still, the game was not decided until the final minute, as the visitors got within 85-83 before Aradori sealed the deal from the free throw line with 14 seconds to go.

"This game was very important. They managed to be well organized in the first half while we didn't have enough energy to break their game. We increased our intensity and put more strength in the third quarter: the team had a big reaction, which has led us to a perfect cohesion. I think that Eurocup is a challenging competition that can teach us the need of being ready and focused from the first minutes of the game."
McCOY, TYRON
Artland Dragons Quakenbrueck
"First of all, I would like to congratulate Cantu and its coach, which has shown an impressive game organization and played a good second half. We managed to control the match during the first half, with a very strong defense and a productive offense. During the second half of the game, although, we let too much space to Cantu's important players, and without defense it is impossible to win. I think we are in a very tough Eurocup group, with some favorite teams, like Ostend and Cantu, which played the Euroleague last season. Even with that, our goal is to improve our game organization, in order to compete fairly with the other teams in this group."

"This game shows how important is to start in the best way, focused and intense. They were more focused in the first half and took advantage of their physical condition. We had a big reaction as a team in the second half, that led us to this important victory."
