THE TAKE

Akasvayu Girona looks to shake off a surprising loss in the ULEB Cup Last 32 first leg but has the home fans behind it as a motivated Elan Chalon comes to town. Head coach Pedro Martinez's Girona trailed for most of the game and ended up losing 93-85 at Chalon. Akasvayu out-rebounded Elan 32-20 and committed just 12 turnovers. But Chalon shot a blistering 56% from the field and turned the ball over just 9 times. Martinez's team struggled with its offense without departed main weapon Jackson Vroman. Center Marc Gasol led the way with 18 points, 10 rebounds and 4 assists while power forward Ivan Radenovic had his best of the competition with 17 points. And playmaker Arriel McDonald and small forward Erik Daniels each added 16. But it was not enough as the Spanish club shot just 46% from the field. Martinez's team will have to improve on that and the defense will have to work harder on pressuring Chalon's perimeter players, who knocked down 14-of-25 (56%) from long range. Elan Chalon head coach Gregor Beugnot has to be optimistic about how his club played at home, especially playmaker Darrel Mitchell, who collected 17 points and 12 assists. Small forward Bryan Bracey knocked down 4 three-pointers in scoring 23 points and Beugnot got plenty of bench support with guard Xavier Corosine scoring 16, center Moussa Badiane 12 and power forward John Ford 10 in a winning effort. Beugnot may be concerned that his team shot all its bullets in the home leg. The French side must keep its cool when Girona is making runs and that will be Mitchell's job - making his performance as the number one key for Chalon with a Last 16 berth against either Buducnost or Hemofarm waiting.

Head Coaches

MARTINEZ, PEDRO
Akasvayu Girona
"I believe that we played a good game, defending very well. They are a team with very good three-point shooters, but we made good defense to stop them. It’s been a great match, it enables us to go to the next round with very good sensations. Both in attack and defense we made a good job, they couldn't follow the rhythm we were playing. They didn't have Mitchell with them, so this fact helped us a lot."
BEUGNOT, GREGOR
Elan Chalon
"A very difficult match, without Mitchell it was very complicated. They tried to compensate with aggressiveness and trying to score three-pointers all the time, but we weren't so lucky as when we played at home. Akasvayu Girona played a good game and I wish them the best results in the ULEB Cup."

"It's been a tough game and they played good defense. We played without Mitchell and this really affected us. It’s been a great experience to play in the ULEB Cup."
