|Stellar night for Court Side players in Romania
This weekend the number one..
.. in the Romanian league, the champions from CSU Ploiesti (16-3), met at home the last seeded BC Perla Harghitei Miercurea Ciuc (1-18). Miercurea Ciuc is not an easy opponent for anyone in the league in the second part of the season as they added Wichita State star Clevin Hannah during the winter break. Ciuc was in the lead at halftime the last three tough games, against Sibiu, Cluj and now Ploiesti (52-43). The night started very well, as Yamene Coleman was very determined to put up a huge fight inside and he managed to do just that, as he finished the game with 15 points (3/8 2 pts and 9/9 FT), 15 rebounds, 3 assists, in 37 minutes of play, which led to a +25 efficiency. Clevin Hannah scored 8 points in the 39th minute of the game alone and brought his team back within 5 points. But the champions managed to keep the advantage as Catalin Burlacu was their key player, with 23 points, who eventually won by the final score of 104-94. The speedy point guard Clevin Hannah finished the game with 21 points (2/5 2 pts, 3/6 3pts and 8/9 FT), 10 assists, 3 rebounds, and 2 steals, in 38 minutes of playing time, with an efficiency of +20. For coach Botond Laszlofi of Miercurea Ciuc the game coming up at Craiova will be very important, but surely he will be able to count on Court Side players as they showed consistancy and good performances in all the games they played so far.
