Artland Dragons hold off Cantu late for road win

In a contest between winless teams, Artland Dragons found its first victory of the season by edging Cantu 77-78 in a thriller on the road in Group B. The visitors took a 45-63 advantage in the third quarter, but Cantu was back within 75-76 with three minutes left, however it never took the lead. Anthony King was the main contributor for the winners with 22 points, 9 rebounds and 4 assist, amassing a performance index rating of 32. Antonio Graves added 13 and Brandon Thomas 10 for Dragons. Cantu got 15 points from Damian Hollis, 14 and 8 rebounds from Ivan Buva, and 10 apiece from Cheikh Mbodj and Stefano Gentile.

After a balanced start with the score tied three times, King capped a 9-0 run for the visitors by scoring a layup for a 10-19 margin, Hollis from downtown and Eric Williams using his power in the paint carried Cantu within 18-21. Five points in arrow nailed by Andreas Seiferth pushed the guests to 18-26 before Darius Johnson-Odom from the foul line made it 22-26 by the first quarter buzzer. The Dragons went on an amazing 2-18 run highlighted by 7 points from King, but Cantu did not give up and in the final 90 seconds pushed by Cheikh Mbodj came back within single digits, 35-44 at halftime.

King remained an enigma for the local defense by bagging 9 points in the first five minutes of the third quarter to gain a 43-60 difference that David Holston extended to 45-63 from downtown. The home team tried to stay on track and Awudu Abass’s jumper with seconds left at the buzzer made it 54-67. Three free throws drilled by Gentile pushed Cantu to within 65-69 with six minutes left, while Abass from long distance made it a one-point game. Graves and Johnson-Odom exchanged jumpers for 77-78 with 32 seconds left. Horner missed a triple for the guests, but Cantu was unable to shoot for the victory.

"It was a game that was marked by runs. I think we have played very well, with a high level of leadership. Cantu has played with more energy on defense and broke our rhythm. Nevertheless, I have seen many things going in the right direction for us. And of course, we are glad to be able to get our first Eurocup win this season, especially on the road."
