THE TAKE

Chorale Roanne hopes to play spoiler in Group A as visiting Maroussi Costa Coffee attempts to advance to the Last 16. A victory would be sufficient for Maroussi to advance, though head coach Anastasios Markopoulos's side would still reach the next stage with a loss as long as ASK Riga beats Zadar in the other Group A game on Tuesday. Head coach Jean-Denys Choulet's French club wasted its last chance of staying alive for the next round by losing 86-70 at ASK Riga and dropping to 1-4 after its fourth straight loss. Roanne barely shot over 40% for the game and was out-rebounded 42-24. Guard Chris Monroe scored over 20 points for the fourth time this season. Guard Aaron Harper returned to form with 15 points. And forward Curtis Sumpter added 12 points and 9 rebounds, while forward Karim Souchu came off the bench for 10 points. But the rest of the team totaled just 12 points. In the first Roanne-Maroussi match-up in Week 2, Choulet's team lost 88-73 in Greece by committing 20 turnovers and making just 11 of 19 free throws. Monroe and company will have to call on their pride and the home fan support and hope it's enough. Maroussi meanwhile is playing for its Last 16 life. The club beat Zadar 91-75 at home last week to move to 3-2. Markopoulos saw five players score in double figures - the first time Maroussi had more than three players notch double digits in a single Eurocup game. Markopoulos's men executed well offensively shooting 60% from inside the arc and 40% from beyond it in addition to 17 assists and committing just 9 turnovers. Forward Loukas Mavrokefalides returned to his earlier form with 16 points and 6 rebounds while center Dimitrios Mavroeidis chipped in a season-high 14 points and guard Georgios Diamantopoulos continued his fine recent play with 13 points and 4 assists. If Markopoulos can get that kind of balanced production from deeper into his roster, Maroussi could be looking at a spot in the Last 16.

Quotes Head Coaches

MARKOPOULOS, ANASTASIOS
Maroussi Costa Coffee
"We go to Roanne to play a game like a Final, for our qualification and maybe the first place in the group. The game is not easy, but I trust my team since we are in good shape and I hope that we will recover after the disappointment we had from the Sunday's loss to Olympiacos in a thrilling Greek League game. We spent a lot of energy in that match and we have to reload our tank."

Players

Loukas Mavrokefalides - Maroussi Costa CoffeeMaroussi Costa Coffee advanced to the Last 16 and clinched the top spot in Group A on Tuesday with a 72-83 road win at Chorale Roanne. Maroussi dominated early, let Roanne back and then pulled away once more for the win, which improved its record to 4-2. Loukas Mavrokefalides was excellent with 22 points, 13 rebounds and 4 assists to lead Marrousi, which outrebounded Roanne 18-30. Dimitrios Mavroeidis added 16, Jarod Stevenson 14 and Kostas Kaimakoglou 11. Billy Keys also dished 8 assists for the winners. It was all Maroussi in the first half, as the visiotors stormed out to a 20-point lead before Taj Gray and Marc-Antoine Pellin carried Roanne to 31-42 at halftime. Pellin and Mohamed Kone narrowed the gap to 40-44 in the third quarter before threes by Mavrokefalides, Keys and Stevenson keyed a 0-11 run that put Maroussi back in control again and the visitors held on from there. Pellin paced Roanne with 16 points and 5 assists and Aaron Harper added 11 in defeat.

Gray and Harper hit early three-pointers as Roanne got off to a promising start, but Mavrokefalides and Mavroeidis soon cancelled them out and put Maroussi on top. A Keys triple pushed the visitors further ahead and Kostas Charalampidis added a three before Pierric Poupet three gave the hosts some footing. However Stevenson hit from downtown for Maroussi and Mavrokefalides scored inside to make it 14-23 after 10 minutes. After a pair of Poupet free throws, Stevenson hit another three to give Maroussi its first double-digit lead. Georgios Diamantopoulos added a three and Stebenson made his third as the lead soared to 16-34 and Roanne took a timeout. Pellin ended the hosts’ drought, but Maroussi continued to pour it on as a Kaimakoglou basket-plus-foul made it a 20-point game. Harper and Pellin narrowed the gap to 15 and then Gray and Pellin made free throws as Roanne continued to climb back. The duo would each add one more basket to complete a 13-4 push to make it 31-42 at halftime.

Baskets by Pellin and Kone carried the hosts within 7 early in the third quarter and gave Roanne hope. A Poupet triple followed by a Kone steal and slam made it 40-44 and caused Maroussi head coach Anastasios Markopoulos to take a timeout. A Stevenson basket and a Diamantopoulos triple gave Maroussi some breathing room and soon triples by Mavrokefalides, Keys and Stevenson keyed a 0-11 charge as the visitors went up 44-60. Mavroeidis increased the lead to 18 before Curtis Sumpter free throws ended the period at 48-64. Harper scored from the line and Samba Dia hit from downtown as Roanne showed signs of life. The visitors stayed in control thanks to a Kaimakoglou triple and a Mavrokefalides basket. A sumpet slam on the offensive glass followed by a Poupet steal and dish to Harper for a dunk made it 59-71, but Maroussi wasn't folding. Kaimakoglou and Mavrokefalides continued to answer the best efforts of Pellin and Karim Souchu as Maroussi cruied to the win and a spot in the Last 16.
