Houthalen - Ieper 99-76

Very predictable result when fifth ranked Houthalen (14-9) outscored at home 11th ranked Ieper (8-15) 99-76 on Saturday.

Five Houthalen players scored in double figures. Houthalen's coach Ronnie McCollum felt very confident that he used entire bench which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games.
