Dijon prevails in overtime win on the road

Newcomer JDA Dijon needed extra minutes to fight off Artland Dragons Quakenbrueck on the road, pulling out 76-79 overtime decision on Wednesday. Win improved Dijon to 4-1 in the second place of Group B, while the Dragons dropped its record to 1-4. During the regulation, neither team led by more than 6 points, and that’s the margin Dijon had with 30 seconds to go. But the Dragons put together a 7-1 run to force the overtime. However, Dijon regained the lead in the extra session with baskets from Erwing Walker and Andre Harris, and preserved the lead. Walker scored 18 of his 21 points in the fourth quarter and overtime, to lead in victory. Steven Gray netted 15 points, Harris finished with 14, and Kris Joseph had 13 for Dijon. Lawrence Hill amassed 16 points plus 12 rebounds for the hosts, Bastian Doreth netted 11, while David Holston had 10 points and 10 assists for Artland Dragons.

Antoine Mendy for the visitors, and Holston for the Dragons traded three-pointers early on. Andreas Seiferth made his presence felt inside, with couple of baskets and an offensive rebound, but so did Joseph for Dijon as soon as he came off the bench. Joseph tied the game at 10-10, before Ferdinand Prenom scored 4 points, and Walker opened his account going 3-for-3 from the free throw line for 14-17 after the first quarter. A put-back from Zach Moss, and a pair of triples from Gray helped Dijon to 22-28 lead. Brandon Thomas hit twice from downtown for Artland Dragons, and Hill made a fastbreak dunk, but Gray hit his third triple and Ferdinand Prenom beat the buzzer with a layup for 30-35 halftime lead.

Hill had a three-pointer and a put-back for the hosts, and a second-chance basket from Anthony King tied it at 39-39. But Harris kept Dijon in front, before Joseph strung together 7 points, including a fastbreak layup and a three-pointer that helped the visitors to 44-51 after 30 minutes. Walker nailed a triple, his first field goal of the game, extending the margin to 10 points, but the hosts held Dijon to a single basket during a span of 6 minutes, while Hill scored 7 points and Doreth knocked down a shot from long range to help tie things at 56-56. Walker hit another three-pointer for the visitors, and Gray’s pair of foul shots made it 58-64 with 30 seconds to go in the fourth quarter. It was enough time, however, for King to score a quick two, and Holston a fastbreak three for 63-64. Holston’s two free throws with 4 seconds left in regulation sent the game into overtime, 65-65.

In the extra session, Harris hit couple of jumpers, and Walker had a basket-plus-free throw for 67-72. King scored a pair of layups for the hosts, but Walker nailed a triple to help extend it to 71-79 with 26 seconds to go. In the remaining time, Guido Grunheid had a dunk and a three-pointer, but Dijon prevailed.

Head Coaches

McCOY, TYRON
Artland Dragons Quakenbrueck
"This is a tough game for us to lose. The guys fought hard and did everything you can ask for as a coach. Of course, Dijon is a high quality team; they are second in our group. We missed a lot of open shots that we usually make. Against this very good defense, we executed well and if we start making these shots, we build confidence and make more shots. This is the third Eurocup game that was pretty close and we just have to find a way to win these close games."
BORG, JEAN-LOUIS
JDA Dijon
"It was an important win for us. There was good intensity on both sides. Because of the aggressiveness of Artland, we had to be very tough. In the second half we corrected our poor rebounding from the first half. But we still have a lot of things to work on."

HILL, LAWRENCE
Artland Dragons Quakenbrueck
"It was a good battle and a good game from us, especially on defense until overtime. We missed a lot of open shots, but we still stayed in the game. We fought hard and improved our rebounding where we had problems all season. Hopefully we can take this momentum into the second part of this Eurocup season"
MOSS, ZACH
JDA Dijon
"This was a very important game for us. We had a long week, so it was important for us to stay in the game. It was a game with good intensity. We made some little mistakes at the end, so that we had to go into overtime. But we won the game and in the end that is all that counts."
