***  ULEB  CUP  2002-2003  -  GROUP D   ***

  Round 10: Jan.30, 2003

Another final was played in Lleida where Caprabo beated the tradition team of Cholet 99-84 in a high scoring game. At the half time the visitors had a pretty nice lead of 9 units which was decreased in the third quarter and in the last period came the disaster for Cholet with a 22-2 run. Excellent game of Caprabo Lleida as a team and for Cholet unvalid effort of K’zell Wesson with a great double double. The first men in assists and rebounds of the ULEB Cup won’t keep on playing as Cholet is out. Wins of Varese and Charleroi at home with nice work of veterans Francesco Vescovi and Cristiano Zanus-Fortes for the Italians and Ron Ellis and Andre Riddick for the Charlerois.

Good defense was the key factor to the Cholet win that gives the French squad some hopes of advancing. They will play the ultimate game next week in Lleida. Varese lost but got the qualify. Cholet got a pretty advantage in the second quarter and after half administrated it wisely. American trio of the locals were amazing: K’zell Wesson (best rebounder in the league), Richard Barry (number one in assists) and Tony Stanley who killed Italians from 3 point line. Varese had lot of absences. Their best guys were Shawnelle Scott and Boris Gorenc.
KK Zadar - Caprabo Lleida 81-79
KK Zadar (14-25-15-27): M. Popovic 26 p 4 as, Perincic 13, Samanic 22, Erjavec 2, Banic 6 -starting lineup- Vladovic 0, Longin 3, Dijan 0, Meeks 9.

The most equalized and contested group of this first edition of the ULEB Cup is, without a doubt, the group D. With just one gameday to play, just two wins separate the first and the last teams. Caprabo Lleida lost a great chance to secure the qualify. They could regret this mistake... It was a very struggled match. Zadar finally came back for good and defended a thin advantage in the last seconds when Berni Alvarez missed a trey attempt. The young local hero Marko Popovic solved the game with an impressive performance (26 p). Marko Samanic added 22 and Hrvoje Perincic 13. For Lleida we have to mention the great game of the American pair: AJ Bramlett (19 p) and Michael Ruffin (16 p). Zadar attained the qualify as Caprabo will play a final versus Cholet in the Catalonian city. Varese and Charleroi are also in the next round.
Astronauts Amsterdam - Spirou Charleroi 66-77
Astronauts Amsterdam (19-14-13-20): Tomeljak 13, Spinks 14 p 13 r, Van der Holst 10, McGuthrie 17, Rouwhorst 6 -starting lineup- Faydherbe 2, Bennes 4.
Spirou Charleroi (20-23-15-19): Ellis 7, Faison 6, Moors 3, Riddick 14 p 9 r, Huggins 10 -starting lineup- Drmic 0, Kuzmanovic 7, Stas 14, Potter 16 p 8 r.
Belgian party in Amsterdam. Charleroi won and sealed the qualify and at the same time let the Astronauts without hopes. Jacques Stas and Jim Potter came of the bench to lead their team to the victory. Spirou based the win in an excellent defense. Amsterdam depende too much of the scoring of the American couple and they didn’t have good percentages this time. Chris McGuthrie was the top scorer of the game with 17 points.

  Round 8: Dec.17-18, 2002
Caprabo Lleida - Astronauts Amsterdam 89-67
Caprabo Lleida (21-19-23-26): R. Grimau 4, Rogers 14, Bramlett 9, Ramos 7, A. Angulo 14 -starting lineup- Alvarez 6, Laso 4, Tamames 2, Bosch 15 pts 3 3P, Puyada 0, J. Grimau 1.
Astronauts Amsterdam (18-20-14-15): Tomeljak 3, Van del Holst 2, Spinks 8, Rouwhorst 10, Ridl 11 -starting lineup- Faydherbe 0, Bennes 4, McGuthrie 26 pts 4 3P, Cvjetkovic 0, Burneika 3.
The Astronauts turned the game into a crazy running up and down and this situation lasted till the second half. Then Lleida started to defense and play its game and McGuthrie was too alone in the offense of the Dutchmen. Manel Bosch had a great night hitting all his attempts. Johnny Rogers and AJ Bramlett dominated the boards and the loyal crowd who always fill Barris Nord celebrated a win which means almost the second round guaranteed. For Amsterdam Chris McGuthrie was a headache for the Catalans, but the only one... Koen Rouwhorst (10) did a nice job in the paint, but Joe Spinks was unfortunate.
Cholet Basket - KK Zadar 76-65
Cholet Basket (15-19-24-18): Wesson 12 pts 18 rbs, Krasic 8, Stanley 5, Malet 1, Hayes 11 -starting lineup- Jeanneau 2, Barry 9, Ferchaud 8, Bilba 6, Marquis 14.
KK Zadar (13-15-21-16): M. Popovic 16, Longin 10, Samanic 8, Banic 6, Meeks 2 -starting lineup- Vladovic 3, Perincic 7, Erjavec 13, Dijan 0, Perkovic 0.
Group D is the most equalized of the ULEB Cup and another prove for this statement was the victory from Cholet against Croatian side of Zadar. The defense and the crowd support (almost 5,000 fans) were the key factors. Spectacular night for K'zell Wesson, best rebounder of the competition, with double figures. Another guy who plays each game well is the expert guard Richard Barry commanding the tempo of the game and we should mention the young Claude Marquis who is playing a great Cup. Zadar couldn't overcome the French defense and was failing goals all the game long. Marko Popovic was the best with 16 pts. 
Spirou Charleroi - Metis Varese 79-71
Spirou Charleroi (23-24-14-18): Ellis 14, Faison 12 pts 8 rbs, Moors 7, Riddick 5, Huggins 4 -starting lineup- Kuzmanovic 4, Stas 13, Potter 20 pts 4 3P, Jorssen 0.
Metis Varese (17-25-16-13): Gorenc 19, Vescovi 10, McCormack 10, Zanus-Fortes 8, Osella 4 -starting lineup- Knezevic 6, Allegretti 5, Podkolzin 4, Digiuliomaria 5, Marin 0.
With today's win for Charleroi the standings in this group are really tight with all the teams with chances. The Belgians took benefit of his balanced attack sustained in Ron Ellis (14), Marcus Faison (12), Jacques Stas (13) and Jim Potter (20). Historical team of Varese had a poor supply of the bench and missed 4 key players as Andrea Meneghin, Rusty LaRue, Paolo Conti and Shawnelle Scott, but managed to tie the game with two minutes to play. Then appeared the magic of Potter (not Harry but Jim) to sink a trey who decided the game. Next gameday will be exciting in a group where only Varese and Lleida breath quiet.
