Our team had another high-scoring game, putting up more than 100 points on the scoreboard in the third consecutive game and taking the win home from Riga.

VEF Riga vs. CSKA: 83-102 (+19)


VEF Riga: Perez (13 + 4 as + 2 st + 3 to), Mejeris (2 + 4 rb + 5 pf), Gromovs (3 + 4 rb + 2 as + 2 bs), Janicenoks (9 + 2 as), Berzins (7 + 5 rb + 2 st) start; Brown (15 + 4 as + 5 to), Zotovs (0), Ate (3), Cavars (2 + 4 as + 4 pf), Misters (11 + 3 rb + 4 pf), Carter (18 + 5 rb + 4 st + 5 pf)

CSKA: De Colo (14 + 5 rb + 6 as), Vorontsevich (3 + 4 pf), Clyburn (10 + 6 rb + 4 as), Kurbanov (18 + 6 rb + 4 to), Hines (8 + 9 rb) start; Fridzon (11 + 3 rb), Westermann (11 + 3 as + 2 bs + 3 to), Antonov (5), Higgins (17 + 4 as + 2 st), Khryapa (DNP), Hunter (5 + 6 rb + 3 as), Makiev (DNP)



Dimitris Itoudis, CSKA head coach:
Its obvious we had two different halves. We allowed too much to the opponents’ offense in the first half, we let them score 24 points on open looks, offensive rebounds and fast breaks. At halftime we talked about letting them score around 35 points, and we fulfilled the task. We took the game very seriously and had a lot of respect for our opponent. Theyve done a lot of work this season and are battling for a spot in the playoffs. We probably could have played better, if we hadnt committed some unforced turnovers and missed 13 free throws. But we won by almost 20 points and scored more than 100, and looked to reward the fans with high-scoring basketball.
