Hapoel Galil Elyon finished its ULEB Cup season strong with a 101-84 victory at Benetton Fribourg in Group E. Gil Mossinson's 24 points and 9 rebounds paced four players in double figures for Galil Elyon, which won its final two games to end with a 3-7 record. Aaron Nixon added 24 points and Jai Lamar Lewis chipped in 14 points and 9 rebounds while Yogev Ohayon had 12 points and 5 assists. Fribourg dropped to 3-7 despite 23 points from David Esterkamp. Damon Thorton added 16 points, 9 rebounds and 3 blocks while Harold Mrazek had 13 points, Marcus Sloan scored 11 and Tresor Quidome chipped in 10 points in a losing effort.

Esterkamp scored the scoring for Fribourg with a three-pointer and Quidome's long ball made it 6-2. Lewis's second hoop of the night gave Galil Elyon its first lead at 9-10. Two Thorton scores and two Esterkamp long-balls had Fribourg ahead 21-16. But Mossinson hit back-to-back baskets and Cliff Brown had four points as the guests went ahead 21-24. And Galil Elyon led 26-29 after Or Eytan's three-ball at the end of the first quarter. Brown's foul shot extended the lead, which grew to 30-37 after another Eytan long ball. But Thorton and Esterkamp both hit from downtown as Fribourg was within 40-42. And it was 42-47 at the break. Mossinson's basket and Aaron Nixon's triple gave the guests a 42-52 advantage. And it was still 50-58 after Brown's score. But Pascal Perrier-David and Esterkamp hit back-to-back from long range to even the game at 60-60. Mike Campbell knocked down a three-ball as Galil Elyon led 66-67 after three quarters. Avraham Ben Chimol tipped off the fourth before Eytan and Nixon hit from long range to begin opening a gap for the guests at 70-77. Mossinson scored eight straight points for Galil Elyon in building a 76-88 gap. Sloan brought the deficit back to 80-88, but Galil Elyon allowed just one basket in the final two minutes while Nixon and Ohayon combined for 9 points in that period to finish off the game.

Head Coaches

LEYROLLES, DAMIEN
Benetton Fribourg
"We didn't play tonight. The team of Galil was very offensive and they did a good game. The quality of our game was bad and we had no defense. I'm very disappointed. We have to be more consistent and more offensive. We have to dominate the game and we should defend harder."
FRANCO, DANNY
Hapoel Galil Elyon
"It was a good game. I congratulate Benetton Fribourg Olympic. The team showed some improvement. We missed our qualification in the game against Antwerp Giants. We improved too late but we have a good potential."

Players

ESTERKAMP, DAVID
Benetton Fribourg
"They played well, improved a lot and did a good job. Their offense was very efficient and they had a high percentage of success. In the Swiss championship we can play well 25 minutes but in the ULEB cup it isn't enough. We are not able to finish games."
NIXON, AARON
Hapoel Galil Elyon
"A game with a lot of ups and downs. We played together and improved in the game."
