Partizan uses 0-22 run to go past Asesoft

Partizan NIS Belgrade finished its Eurocup debut season in style by downing CSU Asesoft Ploiesti 65-85 on the road in Group E on Wednesday. Partizan finished fifth in Group E with a 3-7 record, one win behind Asesoft, which was fourth at 5-5 and had already qualified to the Last 32 before this game. Milan Macvan led the winners with 23 points on 8-of-9 two-point shooting, 8 rebounds and 6 assists in less than 26 minutes. Luka Bogdanovic added 15 points while Mihajlo Andric had 11 for Partizan. Dee Brown led Asesoft with 14 points and 9 assists. Gerald Lee had 12 points for the hosts. Macvan and Bogdanovic shined early to give Partizan a 10-23 margin. Asesoft got within 16-23 after 10 minutes but Partizan extended its margin to 32-43 at halftime. Brown brought Asesoft within 37-45 soon after the break but a rain of three-pointers allowed Partizan to go on a game-breaking 0-22 run which already sealed the outcome, 42-73, at the end of the third quarter.

Lee and Brown gave Asesoft an early 4-2 lead. It didn't last long, as Milenko Tepic and Andric struck from downtown in a 2-11 run which Macvan capped with a layup-plus-foul, good for a 6-13 Partizan edge. Macvan kept pacing the guests and got help from Bogdanovic and Boris Dallo to make it a double-digit game, 10-23. Christopher Cooper and Jarvis Hayes brought Asesoft within 16-23 after 10 minutes. Marius Runkauskas hit a three-pointer and a layup by Hayes got the hosts as close as 21-25. Dragan Milosavljevic and Macvan stepped up for Partizan and free throws by Dallo restored a 25-33 margin. A dunk by Vanja Marinkovic soon gave the guests a double-digit margin, 27-37. Dallo and an outstanding Bogdanovic boosted the guests' lead to 32-43 at halftime. Brown followed a layup with a three-pointer to give Asesoft hope, 37-45, soon after the break. It didn't last long, however, as Macvan and Bogdanovic answered from downtown, sparking a game-breaking 0-22 run in which Marinkovic and Andric also hit one from beyond the arc to make it a 30-point game, 37-67. A red hot Andric followed a triple with a put-back basket to give the guests a 42-73 margin after 30 minutes. Asesoft kept trying early in the fourth quarter but Partizan kept a safe margin all the way until the final buzzer.

"I don't mind so much the defeat, but rather the attitude of my players who have already believed in vacation. Finishing the regular season with a defeat, surely there will be some people who will say that we didn't deserve to go further, the way we played tonight. The boys have worked hard in the last four months and I congratulate them on this, but this last game against Partizan leaves me a bitter taste. I wish not to be simple passengers in the Top 32."

"We came to Ploiesti without four major players, Pavlovic, Milutinov, Muric and Gagic, but that hasn't prevented us from playing a great game. I sincerely wanted this because our team faces a difficult year, rebuilding, and this victory means a lot for my young players’ morale. I would like to congratulate Asesoft for its European campaign so far and wish them good luck in the second phase of the Eurocup."

"We didn't have the right attitude this evening and therefore the result is one that doesn't give us credit. We pulled hard to get here, we tried to win every game and we are happy that we will meet other strong teams in just three weeks. Until then, we will try to enjoy a few days with friends and family.
