Van Rossom and Ovcina carried the hosst back to within 1 only to see Markoishvili finish the first period with 5 points to make it 19-25 after 10 minutes. The pace tailed off early in the second period, with both teams misfiring time after time. At the midway point of the second period, each team had only scored 3 points. Finally some shots started to fall as Vladimir Krstic and Chris McCray traded threes. McCray then trimmed the gap to 30-31 after drawing a foul while attempting a three and making all 3 free throws. Veselin Petrovic then stood up with a bomb and Chuck Davis added a basket inside to end the half on an 11-0 charge that put Oostende up 35-31.

Elvir Ovcina - Telindus OostendeOostende’s run grew by 3 more points as Ovcina drilled a triple to open the second half.

Jeter came back with 5 points of his own before Jerry Green capped the period with the home team on top 51-42. Kyiv retained its sudden momentum as Maravic scored inside and Markoishvili from downtown to get within 4. Then a Stack three and a Maravic three-point play, met only by a Van Rossom basket, allowed Kyiv to get to 55-53. After a Petrovic free throw, it was Maravic’s turn to hit from downtown, tying the score at 56-56. Ovcina countered with a triple of his own before Markoishvili kept it tight with a basket for the visitors.

Head Coaches

DRUCKER, SHARON
Telindus Oostende
"We started the game bad. From the second quarter we played better on defence and started to run to open a gap. The fourth quarter however we took some bad options. At the end of the game what you want to achieve is good goal differential. We played good defense tonight, limiting them to 65 points. On offense however we could have done a lot better."
MAHORIC, TOMO
BC Kyiv
"This was a dangerous game for us as we were in a bad position and very close to lose with a big margin. However my guys stepped up and showed character. I am very happy to make this result. But the job is only half done and we will have to face another tough game next week."

"Of course we are disappointed. I feel bad about our offense though both teams had a good defensive game and a bad offensive game. In the fourt quarter they had their momentum."

FAISON, MARCUS

"I feel good we got the win. It was very important to us. This was a different game because of the importance of the game difference. This is one step towards qualification but there is still a difficult game to come next week."
