Lacey, Broekhoff keep Loko undefeated

In a rematch of the 2012-13 EuroCup final, Lokomotiv Kuban Krasnodar remained undefeated in Group C by downing RETAbet Bilbao Basket 102-86 at Basket-Hall on Wednesday. Lokomotiv improved to 4-0, while RETAbet dropped to 1-3. Trevor Lacey led the winners with 20 points and 7 assists. Ryan Broekhoff added 16 points, Joe Ragland and Brian Qvale each had 12 and Frank Elegar posted 10 points and 9 rebounds for Lokomotiv. Jonathan Tabu led RETAbet with 24 points, Alex Mumbru added 17 and Dejan Todorovic had 11 for the guests. Lokomotiv shook off a slow start, as Mardy Collins and Broekhoff led the hosts to a 26-24 lead after 10 minutes. Elegar took over early in the second quarter and an unstoppable Qvale pushed the hosts to a 55-40 halftime advantage. Lokomotiv boosted its margin to 60-40 right after the break and kept a safe lead until the final buzzer.

A three-point play by Pere Tomas and a baseline jumper by Todorovic helped RETAbet take an early 2-7 lead. Collins and Broekhoff combined for 9 points in a 13-2 run that gave Lokomotiv a 15-9 edge. Mickell Gladness and Shane Hammink stepped up for RETAbet and an outstanding Tabu kept the visitors within 20-19. Lacey and Broekhoff each struck from downtown, but a wild up-and-under layup by Mumbru brought RETAbet as close as 26-24 after 10 minutes. Broekhoff kept pacing Lokomotiv early in the second quarter. Ragland joined the three-point shootout and a couple of dunks by Elegar made it a double-digit game, 36-26. Mumbru followed a close basket with a triple and Ricardo Fischer buried one from beyond the arc, but Lokomotiv found a new go-to guy in Qvale, who had 9 points late in the first half. A buzzer-beating close basket by Lacey fixed the halftime score at 55-40.

Three-pointers by Broekhoff and Pavel Antipov made it a 20-point game, 63-43, right after the break. Axel Hervelle and Tabu tried to change things for RETAbet, but the visitors only managed to exchange baskets until back-to-back triples by Mumbru gave his team hope at 75-60. Free throws by Mumbru got RETAbet within 80-66 after 30 minutes. Consecutive three-pointers by Dmitriy Khvostov sealed the outcome, 88-68, with less than seven minutes left.

Head Coaches

Lokomotiv Kuban Krasnodar
"Good win. And I think it was a good win for fans because we played total offensive basketball today. I would say in defense some parts were not good enough. But offensively we played with a lot of confidence, with a good rhythm all game long. So it’s good to watch this kind of a game. It was good for the team that we could involve everybody in the game – some more, some less, but everybody gave a contribution. "
DURAN, CARLES
RETAbet Bilbao Basket
"First of all, congratulations to Lokomotiv. They played a good game. They started too strong in defense. We had the same level in the first and the second quarter. They had a big advantage that was difficult to recover. Now we need to improve and to win the next game that is important for us at home."

"Anybody in this team can be the top scorer. Today I was aggressive. Coach really stressed this. We tried to make them draw fouls, to get to the free throw line. That was something I tried to do. I also gave my teammates the ball, started the attack, used every opportunity you have. That’s what I did today."
