Tariq Kirksay's double-double and Sergei Chikalkin's 21 points paced Unics Kazan to a comfortable 79-108 victory at EiffelTowers Den Bosch in Group I. Kirksay totaled 26 points and 12 rebounds to go along with 4 assists, 4 steals and 1 blocked shot in helping Kazan improve to 2-3 in the group. Virgil Stanescu added 19 points and Victor Keyru chipped in 16 for the guests, who also received 8 points, 3 rebounds, 6 assists and 2 steals from Jerry McCullough. Kazan pulled away right away in the first quarter with a 3-19 run to open a 19-point lead. EiffelTowers tried to come back but dropped to 2-3 despite 14 points each from Greg Stevenson and Darrell Tucker. Den Bosch hosts next week PGE Turów Zgorzelec while Unics remains on the road against Zadar.

McCullough hit the first basket of the game for the guests. And EiffelTowers got on the board with Marcel Aarts' three-point play for a 3-4 game early. Jayson Wells' basket kept the score at 5-8, but Unics did not waste any time pulling away. Chikalkin scored 5 points including a three-pointer while Kirksay and Stanescu each tallied 4 points in a 3-19 spurt for a 8-27 lead. Robert Owens stopped the floodgates with a three-pointer for EiffelTowers, but Kirksay's three-ball made it 11-30 after one period. Tucker's two foul shots and Kees Akerboom's four-point play cut the deficit to 17-30. But the advantage was back up to 19-40 as Dusko Savanovic scored two baskets in a 2-10 run. Den Bosch refused to die that easily and four foul shots by Travis Young on a technical foul against Savanovic helped bring the margin back to 29-40. Three straight baskets by Victor Keyru and the lead was again 29-46. Kazan was ahead 34-46 at the break. Tirksay started the third with two foul shots and scored six points as Unics began the second half on a 4-13 surge to grab a 38-59 advantage. Keyru's three-pointer pushed the lead up to 44-71 and Kazan led comfortably 50-74 going into the fourth period. Kirksay again opened the scoring in the fourth. Wells hit one three-pointer and Dean Oliver knocked down two long balls to pull EiffelTowers to within 65-83 with six minutes left. But Chikalkin and Marko Tusek drained three-balls and Stanescu converted a three-point play in using a 2-13 surge to pull away once and for good.

"We miss three important players, it's destratrous. We had no answers, everything they tried worked, everything we did went wrong. We missed a bunch of easy shots and you can't do that in a game like this."
SIREIKA, ANTANAS
Unics Kazan
"Today we asked our players for some strength to play different from these last weeks games. Then we were missing team spirit and today we are very happy."
