Brandon Gay - Antwerp GiantsAfter a physical opening minute of play, Triumph caught its rhythm first as Vyaltsev scored in three consecutive possessions to gibe the hosts a 7-0 lead. Gay finally scored Antwerp's first points after nearly three minutes, but the hosts remained in total control as five different players scored during a 12-0 run to finish the period up 30-12. Toya and Sergeant saw Antwerp cut the gap to 32-21 early in the second period, however Triumph never wavered. The hosts' lead reached the 20-point mark on Chatman's triple late in the period. The lead grew to 23 before Lee Wouters made it 55-34 at halftime. Antwerp got as close as 60-44 in the third, but the game was totally one-sided by then and Triumph quickly restored a big lead, that stood at 75-56 after 30 minutes. Fedor Dmitriev gave Triumph its biggest lead, 83-58, midway through the fourth quarter on the way to a convincing win.

Head Coaches

EREMIN, STANISLAV
Triumph Lyubertsy
"We settled the outcome already at the beginning of the match due to a good, aggressive attack. I am happy with the fact that Mire Chatman, after some not-too-successful matches, played a good game. I am not so happy that we missed so many shots, even in easy situations, nor by our low free throw percentage."
VAN CAMP, SVEN
Antwerp Giants
"We played today against a very tough rival, and certainly, we did not play our best. We could not find our game rhythm for a long time. But I am glad at least that we played them relatively even in the last three quarters."

Triumph Lyubertsy
"I think we played a good game. Most important was winning it, because it was important to win this one. We were surprised a bit by their pressing game, which they started in the second quarter, and it gave us some difficulties. We were able to overcome them, and Triumph still took a deserved victory."
