Krasnye Krylia Keravnos Strovolou 79-74
The best feasible result for the team from Strovolos took place in Russia (Krasnie Krylia's home court in Samara) since the home team won at the end with the poor +5 the Cyprus site.
The Russian power house got some serious trouble from the Americans of Keravnos Strovolou but finally due to the great performance of Chester Simmons and Nikita Balashov in the scoring part and Aaron Miles in the organizational part gave the victory to the home team.
Chester Simmons has scored 24 points for Krasnye Krylia who claimed a 79-74 win over their Cypriot guests, Keravnos, in their opening EuroChallenge Group B fixture on Wednesday evening.
Simmons starred for the home side, pulling his team out of ruts at decisive moments.
Trailing by six points late in the opening half, Simmons hit a three-pointer, before adding the first five points of the second half to hand the home team the momentum.
When Simmons again hit from outside early in the final quarter, the lead for the Russians was out to 14 points (68-54), but thereafter they went cold from the floor, allowing Keravnos to fight back to be within four points, 74-70, on a Julian Julian Vaughn (205-C/F-88, college: Georgetown) and-one play, with the clock showing 3:19 remaining in the contest.
Julian Vaughn shared top scoring honors for the guests with 16 points alongside Antonio Crocker. He also picked up 12 boards whilst Crocker had eight.
However, with Simmons making one from the charity stripe before following it up with a jump-shot soon after, the buffer was back out to seven points and the home team would not be threatened again
On six-for-eight shooting from the field, youngster Nikita Balashov provided the main scoring support for Simmons, ending the game with 15 points and six rebounds. Aaron Miles had 11 assists and six points.
Keravnos head coach Panagiotis Yiannaras stated the following: "First of all, congratulations to Krasnye Krylia. Each time we try to win, we prepared well for this game, watched videos to see the strongest points of Krylia. We played bad in the third period, two players got three fouls, another one was badly injured, and also Damjanovic could not come because of visa problems. We missed some open shots at the end of the game - and we lost it."

KRKA Michelin Etha Engomis 100-73
In the Group A game, 2011 EuroChallenge champions KRKA made easy work of their season opener in Novo Mesto defeating Cypriot side Michelin Etha Engomis with 27 points difference and a final score being 100-73.
Edo Muric led all scorers with 20 points and Domen Lorbek had 19 for the Slovenians, while for the Cyprus site top scorer was the British international point guard Ogooluwa Adegboye who ended the game with 16 points.
Four players scored in double figures as the 2011 EuroChallenge winners KRKA Novo Mesto won their Group A opener 100-73 in an easy night out since the Cyprus champions of Michelin ETHA are far behind in quality and techniques.
Edo Muric led the way with 20 points and eight rebounds; Domen Lorbek had 19 points; Jakov Vladovic collected 18 points, seven rebounds and six assists; whilst Jure Lucic had 13 points and seven rebounds for the Slovenian hosts.
Ogooluwa Adegboye paced the guests from Cyprus with 16 points while Akida Mc Lain added 12 points and six rebounds in the loss.
KRKA opened an early 10-2 lead and it grew to 10 points (14-4) before ETHA trimmed the gap to 15-11. But the hosts were ahead 24-13 after one quarter.
The Slovenia side was clearly in control and did not let ETHA into the game with Lorbek draining a three for a 15-point cushion and later back-to-back baskets to make it 42-28. Taron Downey ended the first half with two consecutive long balls to cut the deficit to 46-37 at the break.
Novo Mesto used an 18-6 run in the third quarter to open a 64-45 lead to regain the dominance. The advantage was 71-53 after three quarters.
The guests would only get to within 17 points in the fourth quarter while the lead grew to 27 points.
Taron Downey scored 11 points and 5 assists, while Akida McLain added 12 points and 6 rebounds as no other player from the Cyprus site reached the double digits
The Cyprus clubs Head Coach Kyriakos Adamou stated that "Participation in this competition is very important for us. We have a young team this season, for most of the players this is their first appearance on such a level. We don't have a lot of time to practice. Although we're not happy with the score, because difference was very big, this game was important for us. We'll try to be better in the future."


Pizza Express Apollon Sluc Nancy 65-81
SLUC Nancy used a 14-0 run over nearly six minutes in the fourth quarter to pick up a strong 81-65 road victory over Pizza Express Apollon in Group G play of the EuroChallenge.
Bingo Merriex paced the French guests with 17 points and 8 rebounds while John Linehan scored 13 points and Mouloukou Diabate scored 11 points and 6 assists. Apollon led by 13 points in the second quarter but could not hold on despite 25 points and 8 rebounds from Brandon Brown.
Brown scored 10 points as the Cypriot hosts jumped ahead 15-6. The home side still led 19-15 after one quarter.
Apollon appeared in control of the game with a 9-0 run to start the second period for a 28-15 lead. But Merriex scored seven points and Linehan and Marcellus Sommerville each nailed three-pointers in a 20-9 Nancy run and the Apollon lead was only 37-35 at halftime.
The hosts had regained a 44-37 advantage but a 12-2 Nancy run gave the guests the lead 49-46. And Linehan nailed another triple before Abdel Sylla's dunk just before the third quarter buzzer for a 57-52 Nancy cushion.
Apollon were within 60-58 with 8:36 remaining but the French defense shut down the hosts until the 2:39 mark and Nancy decided the game with a 14-0 - thanks to five points from Nicholas Pope.
Brandon Brown was the top scorer of the game with 24 points and dashed down 8 rebounds but these were not enough for the Cyprus site. Marvin Jefferson followed from a long distance with 11 points while no other player from Apollon scored double digits.
Apollon Head Coach Akis Konstantinou stated the following: "The game was decided in the last quarter due to the fact that our players got quite tired. During the last six minutes we lost our concentration and made a lot of mistakes. As a result an opponent of Nancy's level took the advantage and went ahead to win the game."
