And a Pluta three-point play pushed the lead to 22-11 before Allen made it 22-13 after one period. Dunn opened the scoring in the second and Bartlomiej Woloszyn's free throw made it 25-13. Four points by Archibong and Ilian Evtimov's three-point play trimmed the margin to 25-20. But Pluta answered with a long ball for a 28-20 lead. Archibong cut it back to 32-27 but Wiktor Grudzinski nailed a three-ball for a 35-27 advantage, which Archibong made 35-30 at the break. Allen started the scoring in the second half but baskets by Daniels and Henderson pushed the gap back up to 39-32. And a Pluta three-pointer started an 8-0 run for a 51-38 bulge. Frankfurt got the lead down to 9 points but Pluta hit another bomb and the gap was 61-44 after a Daniels basket. Anwil led 61-48 going into the fourth. Allen and Stefano Garris hit for baskets to start the fourth and trim the deficit to 61-52. But Henderson converted a three-point play and Daniels scored three straight baskets and the lead was back up to 70-52. It reached 20 points for the first time with Pluta's triple for 73-53 with six minutes left. Wloclawek built its advantage as much as 27 points - 85-58 - before finally calling off the dogs.

Head Coaches

PIPAN, ALES
Anwil Wloclawek
"It may look as it was an easy game for us, but it wasn't. We showed good defense, especially in the second half. Thanks to that, we were able to score some easy baskets in the breakaway."
DIDIN, MURAT
Skyliners Frankfurt
"It's the first time in a few months when we played in almost a full roster. Only one player was absent, but we had an almost perfect siutation on the team. In the second half Anwil showed great tempo game. We tried to defend, but we had problems with their offense. We wanted to win, but our shooting percetnage was poor. I would like to congratulate them."
