The Eurocoup season started badly for Boulogne-Levallois, with two defeats to start, but things are better for the Metropolitans 92! They chained a second victory in a row on Tuesday during the fourth day, against the Montenegrins of Mornar Bar: 78-65. The Parisians were only led during the first minute in this match, before gaining the upper hand over their opponents, even if the gap took a long time to become substantial. After ten minutes, Boulogne-Levallois led 15-10, then 39-33 at halftime. The gap climbed to +13 in the 23rd (46-33), then Mornar Bar signed an 18-8 in four minutes to return to -3 (54-51). But the Metropolitans did not tremble and resumed their march forward in the last quarter, which they won 19-11 by widening the gap throughout these ten minutes to secure this victory.

The duo Gray – Chikoko at the top

Rob Gtay was the great architect of this success, with 16 points and 3 rebounds, and was well helped by Vitalis Chikoko, who finished with 14 points and 8 rebounds. “It feels really good. We didn’t defend very well in the first three games and today we wanted to be better, and everyone worked hard in defense. I think that’s why we won this match “, rejoiced the Zimbabwe player. Thanks to this success, Boulogne-Levallois comes back to the height of his opponent of the day (2v-2d) at the top of group B, before going to Brescia next week.
