TLU coast past Barsy for first win

TALLINN - In what was surely not the most exciting game, Tallinna Kalev/TLU had absolutely no trouble handling visting Barsy, as they comfortably coasted through the game and took a 73-42 victory


The Estonians had no interest in allowing this game to drag on, and instantaneously took the reigns, running off to a double-digit advantage just one quarter into the game.

The margin just grew from then on and reached 19 before the second half. If that was not enough of a statement from the hosts, they made sure to lay things to bed in the final quarter, allowing a mere five points, while scoring 18 themselves. The final score perfectly reflected the dominance TLU demonstrated in the outing.

Bamba Fall and Kaido Saks both had great games, recording 17 points apiece, while Dorde Dzeletovic and Kristo Saage also entered double-digit scoring. The two had 13 and 12 points respectively. As Mario Paiste added 7 points, Reimo Tamm and Janis Vahter were the only two players to record points off the bench, as they combined for another seven.

Dmitrii Ezhov had a team-high 14 points for Barsy, as Konstantin Glazyrin had 13.
