The Take

Kalise Gran Canaria looks to shrug off a minor upset as it returns home for its ULEB Cup Last 32 return leg after losing at KK Bosna. Head coach Salvador Maldonado's Gran Canaria shot 53% from the field and out-rebounded Bosna 29-20. But Bosna hit a blistering 55% for the game and Gran Canaria committed 20 turnovers in an 89-82 loss. Maldonado had four players score in double figures, led by forward Niklas Caner-Medley's 17 points. Power forward Kornel David had 14 off the bench and reserve guard Roberto Guerra added 13 while shooting guard Carl English tallied 16 points but was harassed into 7 turnovers. The Spanish club will have to take better care of the ball if it hopes to move onto a Last 16 showdown with Asvel or Galatasaray. And it will have to find a way to slow down Bosna. Head coach Jurij Zdovc's Bosna came into the Last 32 with the worst record of the remaining teams at 4-6. But that didn't stop the Bosnian side from winning its third straight game at home. Center Lance Williams again played a crucial role with 17 points off the bench, and playmaker Bryan Bailey collected 9 points, 9 assists and 4 steals. But shooting guard Goran Ikonic picked a great time for his best game of the competition with 22 points - 12 more than his average. Guard Suad Sehovic scored a season-best 11 points, and power forward Dzenan Rahimic equaled his season high with 16 points. If Zdovc can get that type of production again, Bosna may just finish off its surprising first leg and advance to the Last 16.

Carl English - Gran Canaria Grupo DunasKalise Gran Canaria advanced to the ULEB Cup Last 16 round by downing KK Bosna 89-69 on Tuesday night. The result erased an 89-82 loss in the first leg last week in Bosnia. In the Last 16, Gran Canaria will face Galatasaray Cafè Crown with the first match scheduled for March 11 in Istanbul. A 13-0 run in the first quarter gave the first serious lead to Gran Canaria. It grew to 30-18 late in the second period and to 38-22 by halftime. The hosts made another big run back from the lockers to get ahead 60-30 and practically close the contest. Kornel David led the way for Gran Canaria with 23 points, Carl English collected 16, Marcus Norris added 13 with 7 assists while Nik Caner-Medley finished with 11. Lance Williams had 19 points and 7 rebounds for KK Bosna and Goran Ikonic added 15.

Edin Bavcic gave an early 0-4 margin to KK Bosna, but the hosts answered immediately with a 13-0 run highlighted by three-pointers from Norris and English. The cushion grew to the double figures, 18-7, with another basket from downtown from Caner-Medley, before Williams completed a three-point play for the guests. But Roberto Guerra from the foul line fixed the first quarter scoring at 20-10. Williams opened fire in the second quarter from mid range, then Ikonic scored from beyond the arc to get to 24-15. David fueled the hosts in the paint to rise to 30-18 with three minutes left to halftime. Ikonic and David exchanged three-pointers, but the Hungarian big man of Gran Canaria remained hot to finish the first half with a mid-range jumper for the final 38-22 for the hosts.

Jim Moran raised the difference to 42-22 early in the third quarter. Dzenan Rahimic then tried to take charge for KK Bosna with a pair of scores, but a 14-3 charge with 7 points from English pushed the hosts to 56-29. A basket in the paint from Sitapha Savane made it a 30-point margin for the hosts, 60-30. The guests showed pride trying to cut the difference and Williams scored from the foul line to close to 64-42. But then David fixed the score at 69-44 after 30 minutes. Bryan Bailey, Williams and Ikonic scored three baskets in a row to reduce the difference to 73-56 at the midway point of the last quarter, but Gran Canaria remained in control to the final buzzer with English posting the last basket for the final 89-69.
