Carl English - Gran Canaria Grupo DunasMassie scored in the paint gave a 6-10 slim advantage to Gran Canaria to start the match. Then, in a perfect run-and-gun style, Wilson and Jeff Varem fueled Asvel to finish the first quarter ahead 32-22. Despite Guerra and Jim Moran trying to push the visitors back with mid-range shooting, Asvel maintained consistent margins to stay ahead by 48-35 with easy points from Uchenna Nsomwu. Guerra remained on fire, however, to cut the cushion with consecutive buckets at halftime to 53-45. English helped Gran Canaria to stay alive and get within 66-57 at the midway point of the third quarter, before Troutman from the foul line and Wilson from downtown gave Asvel another double-figure cushion, 77-67, after 30 minutes. A free throw by Guerra reduced the difference to 83-78 with 5 minutes left in the match, but C onley extended the margin again to 87-78. After the last attempts by English and Sergio Perez to keep Gran Canaria in striking distance at 91-86 with a minute to go, Wilson sealed the win for Asvel.

Head Coaches

BARATET, YVES
Asvel Basket
"Games like tonight's are about details. The team needed to adapt to their zone defense. We found the resources and also shot our free throws at 89% success. We are still far from qualification for the next round. We stilll have five matches to play. Wroclaw moved to first this evening and four teams are within a point. Nothing is settled."

"We faced a very good team from Gran Canaria. We played a complete game. They closed the score at the end thanks to their shooters. And we had periods without a real leader on the floor. The absence of Aymeric is felt in our passing game against the zone. It is necessary to keep a cool head and to shoot well outside."
