At the second quarter it was a solo of UG center Derrick Derrick Alston (208-C/F-72, agency: Priority Sports, college: Duquesne). He was playing very effective.
He scored 13 points at the second quarter by the shots from the center distance. During 14 minute UG had +10 advantage (35-25) Totally +23 at two games. Two 3point shots of Aleksandar Subara (183-G-79, agency: Beo Basket) let the visitors go close to UG (41-34) But using fast breaks UG brought initiative again by playing 3 guards.
Jurica Golemac (209-F-77, agency: XL Croatian BC) was playing at defence against Aleksandar Subara. He kept Aleksandar Subara close not giving him a chance for a shot. The only way for him was to use a penetration under the basket where Derrick Alston block him also.
Immediately after the big break UG made a final punch by making 3 minutes with 9-2. 6 points from 9 made Derrick Alston. After that Perm within 5 minutes were not able to score a point. 65-50.
