ASVEL finish group play with win over Virtus

U18 LDLC ASVEL Villeurbanne collected its first victory at the Euroleague Basketball Adidas Next Generation Tournament Qualifier Valencia by knocking off U18 Virtus Bologna 52-58. The game had no impact on the standings of Group B as Virtus had already locked up first place and a spot in Sunday’s final with its 2-0 mark coming into the game while ASVEL was already secure in the last spot in the group. Matthew Strazel led the way for ASVEL with 21 points while Cedrick Sam Mbaka and Hugo Desseignet both scored 11 points and Flavien Buanga had 10 points. Virtus was paced by Gora Camara with 11 points, 13 rebounds and 10 fouls drawn.

The game was tight early on with Buanga and Sam Mbaka combining for all 10 points for a 8-10 ASVEL lead. Gabriele Procida’s three-pointer had Virtus up 15-13 before Sam Mbaka and Buanga scored again and had the French side up 15-19 after 10 minutes. Desseignet’s free throws increased the gap to 6 points and he added a three-point play later as the cushion grew to 21-28. Manuele Solaroli hit two baskets at the other end and Virtus trailed just 30-33 at the break. Neither team could pull away in the third quarter with 3 points being the biggest lead at 36-39 for ASVEL. A Matteo Nicoli three-pointer evened the game and it was 41-41 after 30 minutes. Virtus was up 47-45 when Strazel completed a three-point play and Desseignet had a three-ball to go up 47-51. And Strazel decided the game with a three-pointer to make it 52-57 with 1:20 minutes left.
