THE STAKES

In a very unpredictable game, perennial Czech League champion CEZ Nymburk takes Turkish powerhouse Banvit BK for a spot in the next round. Only the winner will have the chance to keep dreaming about a first-ever Turkish Airlines Euroleague season.

INJURIES

No major injury problems on both sides - which makes this showdown even better.

THE TAKE

Both teams hold on to a core of players that have been together for several seasons. Nymburk features Mike Lenzly, Tre Simmons, Petr Benda or Pavel Pumprla - among others - but offers a brand new frontcourt featuring Lamayn Wilson and Drew Naymick. Banvit managed to keep four of its starters to have a team ready to deliver right away, with veteran gunner Serkan Erdogan ready to pull the trigger.

Tre Simmons - CEZ NymburkCzech challenger CEZ Nymburk walked tall into the second of this weekend's Turkish Airlines Euroleague Qualifying Rounds by handily defeating Banvit BK of Turkey by 69-57 on Friday in Charleroi, Belgium. Nymburk used a 13-0 run in the first quarter to establish big leads that it never let Banvit threaten the rest of the night. Nymburk advances to play Khimki Moscow Region of Russia, an earlier winner, in Saturday's bracket semifinals. Lamayne Wilson led the winners with a big double-double of 19 points and 11 rebounds. He was seconded by Tre Simmons, with 19 and 7, respectively. Pavel Pumprla added 12 points for Nymburk. Banvit, playing from behind all night, had Chuck Davis as its sole double-digit scorer, with 15 points. Banvit is out of the qualifying rounds, but will look forward to playing the 2011-12 Eurocup this season.

Banvit kept close at the start on a Cemal Nalga bucket, making it 4-4, but could not convert on early offensive rebounds to take the lead. Instead, Nymburk’s offense kicked in big-time then, with a 13-0 blast started by Pumprla and finished by Mike Lenzly. In between, Wilson and Simmons started firing, too. The latter's layup marked a 19-5 advantage for Nymburk. However, a pretty reverse layup by Davis soon cut the difference and foul shots by Baris Ermis brought Banvit to within 7 points, 19-12, after 10 minutes.

Nymburk opened the second quarter on a Lenzly layup, but Chris Hammonds answered from downtown, pulling Banvit to within 21-15. Banvit, however, wasn’t able to keep pace with Nymburk’s offensive attack. Wilson, Simmons and Lenzly poured in points, and Michal Kremens hit a buzzer-beating three on a set play to put Nymburk well in front, 34-21, at the end of 20 minutes.

Banvit reacted after halftime with a pair of close-in baskets from Davis. Pumprla responded with a dunk and free throw combination for Nymburk. Every time that Banvit creeped within single digits, like on a layup by Kenan Bajramovic at 37-29, Nymburk had an answer, namely Wilson's three-pointer a minute later. The same sequence saw Lance Williams cut the difference and Wilson raise it up to 45-34 with a dunk. In the end, Banvit couldn't wrest any control from Nymburk, which led 53-40 after three quarters.

Nymburk was content to trade baskets in the final quarter and was hardly endangered in the process. Once again, when Banvit threatened to get within single digits, on free throws by Davis at 62-51, Petr Benda made a nifty layup and Simmons teed up a three-pointer to prevent any miracle finishes. Nymburk's work was done, but there was not celebrating allowed yet. The new necessity was to get ready in less than 24 hours to play Khimki.

Head Coaches

CEZ Nymburk
“We did very well for most of the game, especially on defense, and against a good coach and a good team. Now that there are more fouls called, it’s a bit of a problem for us because we don’t have such a deep bench, but we managed that OK today. This represents a good victory for the club, the first in the Euroleague in the history of the club, so this is another step forward for Nymburk. Now I am curious to see how my players react to playing games of this level in quick succession. We are not used to this and we had to use the main players for many minutes because we obviously wanted to win. So it will be interesting. Anyway, in basketball anything can happen. If you go to the betting shop, you will definitely not see us as favorites, but we’ll try our best.”
ENE, ORHUN
Banvit BK
“Congratulations to Nymburk, they deserve the win. We did nothing on defense and nothing on offense. We had no reaction against their one-on-one or zone defense. It’s true that it is too early to play this competition, but that’s no excuse.”

Players

WILSON, LAMAYNE
CEZ Nymburk
“We’ve seen some teams get off to slow starts. I’m going to have to be a leader here, so I wanted to put some motivation in the team. I showed motivation and I put the effort in and everybody followed my lead, so it was great. To be honest, I expected a tougher game. We know they have a good team with tough players but we ran a lot and maybe they were a bit tired at one point. Now we have to face the next game with the same mind frame and keep playing our game, keep running to push, push, push. We have to focus on ourselves and play as hard as we can.”
HAMMONDS, CLIFF
Banvit BK
“We tried to get back in it, but they never let us close. They always had control of the game and never took their foot off the pedal.”
