THE TAKE

The 2012-13 Turkish Airlines Euroleague Qualifying Rounds start with a showdown between domestic league champions, as CEZ Basketball Nymburk goes against Telenet Oostende on Tuesday at 18:00 CET. Nymburk was one win away from surviving the Qualifying Rounds last season. Oostende gets to the Qualifying Round for the first time, but another Belgian team, Spirou Basket Charleroi, qualified to the Euroleague in 2011 and 2012.

Nymburk relies on A.J. Abrams and Miljan Pavkovic to set the right game tempo. Nymburk is set to use Mike Taylor at off-guard to make the most out of his athleticism and driving skills. Experienced playmakers Dusan Djordjevic and defensive stoppers Quentin Serron and Mario Stojic will do their best to stop Pavkovic and Taylor. Oostende is really deep at both forwards with versatile players like Wes Wilkinson, Veselin Petrovic and Matt Lojeski, a great scorer with high basketball IQ. Lojeski will not have it easy against Aubrey Coleman and Wilkinson faces a tough challenge against experienced forward Christos Tapoutos. Both teams have deep, solid froncourts. Nymburk relies on Petr Benda, Pavel Houska and Drew Naymick to dominate around the baskets. It won't be an easy task, however, as two-time Euroleague champion Tomas Van den Spiegel and experienced big man Brent Wright and Dragisa Drobnjak are a rock-solid defensive lineup ready to make the difference in this exciting game that gets the 2012-13 Euroleague season started!

Players CEZ Nymburk celebrates in Desio - Qualifying Round 2012Czech champion CEZ Basketball Nymburk advanced to the second stage of the Turkish Airlines Euroleague Qualifying Rounds with a resounding 83-65 victory on the opening game of the eight-team event in Desio, Italy. Nymburk pieced together a 17-2 run that bridged the third and fourth quarters to break open what had been a close game to that point. A.J. Abrams scored 6 of his team-high 15 points during that stage to spark the winners. Nymburk also outshot Oostende from three-point range by making 12 of 26 (46.1%) and outrebounded the Belgian champs 37-32. Petr Benda scored 14, Mike Taylor 13, Miljan Pavkovic 10 and Pavel Houska added 9 points and 11 rebounds for Nymburk, which plays next on Thursday. Matt Lojeski paced Oostende with 16 points, Brent Wright tallied 14 points and 9 rebounds and Dusan Katnic also scored 14 in defeat. As a result of the loss, Oostende will play in the 2012-13 Eurocup.

AJ Abrams - CEZ Basketball Nymburk - Qualifying Round 2012Both teams scored inside on their opening possessions, but Nymburk had the hotter hand early. Lukas Palyza nailed a three, Abrams followed with a jumper and Taylor dropped a three in transition to lift the Czech champs to 10-2. Lojeski carried Oostend back within 3 only to see Abrams connect from downtown. Wright was a force inside for Oostende and Lojeski added another basket to keep it close. Mario Stojic drew Oostende within 16-15 from the line. Benda, on the offensive glass, kept Nymburk ahead, but Lojeski countered with a tough three-point play. Katnic gave Oostende its first lead, 19-20, with a pair of free throws. Abrams answered from downtown before Lojeski free throws left the score knotted at 22-22 through 10 minutes.

Nymburk took charge early in the second quarter with baskets inside by Christos Tapoutos and Drew Naymick. Taylor added a jumper to make it 28-22. Dragisa Drobnjak scored Oostende’s first points of the second quarter after nearly two and a half minutes. Oostende stayed close, but after Naymick made a hook shot and Pavkovic took a steal in for a layup, it was 34-28 midway through the quarter. Lojeski raced to pick up a loose ball and throw down a slam to bring Oostende back within 1. Vojtech Hruban kept Nymburk on top with a basket-plus-foul and Palyza extended the lead to 5 with a triple. After Katnic narrowed the gap to 2, Hruban hit back with a long jumper. However in the closing seconds, a Taylor turnover led to a Lojeski slam at the buzzer to bring Oostende within 44-43 at the break.

Dusan Katnic - Telenet Oostende - Qualifying Round 2012Lojeski remained Oostende’s main man with a basket to give his team the lead at the start of the third quarter. Taylor countered with a deep triple, only to see Wilkinson match him. The problems mounted for Nymburk when Abrams went to the bench with his fourth foul. Nevertheless, Coach Ronen Ginzburg’s men stayed strong and a Pavkovic three-pointer made it 52-48. Wright battled inside for a rebound, foul drawn and 2 free throws as the lead switched hands again. Stojic capped a 0-7 Oostende surge with a driving layup. Houska tied the game with a big three and soon after Benda put Nymburk up 59-57 from the line. Nymburk finished the quarter strong with Benda scoring twice around a Pavkovic bucket to make it 68-60, however Pavkovic also picked up his fourth foul in the closing seconds of the third quarter. Katnic made it 68-62 with 10 minutes to play.

Abrams pulled up for a jumper and then drew a foul and sank a free throw for Nymburk’s biggest lead yet, 9 points. The red-hot guard then drilled a three to make it 6 straight points for him and to extend a 12-2 team run. The pressure seemed to affect Oostende, which failed to convert on a three-chance possession. Houska added another three as the lead swelled to 15. Abrams fouled out, but Nymburk continued padding its lead as Tapoutos sank free throws. Dusan Djordjevic finally scored his team’s first points after more than five minutes, but that was not enough to spark a run. Taylor fouled out for Nymburk, which left the Czech champs without either of their starting guards, however Oostende’s offensive woes continued. A Pavkovic three with 2:22 to play made it 83-64 and essentially settled the outcome.
