Artland Dragons pulled into a tie atop Group H with its first road victory - a convincing 61-79 win at Pau-Orthez. Adam Chubb scored 16 points and Terrance Thomas had his best game of the tournament with 13 points and 4 rebounds as Artland improved to 4-2 in Group H. Dirk Madrich chipped in 10 points for Dragons, which also had Earl Rowland and Darious Hall add 9 points. With its fourth straight loss, Pau drops to 1-5 and now needs loads of help to reach the elimination round. Ludovic Vaty was the only Orthez player to hit double figures with 13 points while Shaun Fein and Antywane Robinson each had 8 points. Pau next plays at Benetton Tamoil while Artland hosts Lukoil Academic. The Dragons already led 18-33 after 10 minutes and boosted their margin to 32-52 midway through the third quarter. Pau managed to get within 44-55, but the Dragons jept a double-digit lead all the way until the final buzzer.

Chubb started the scoring for the visitors with a three-point play. Fein scored back-to-back baskets, the second a three-pointer for a 5-3 lead, and Robinson's long-ball made it 10-7. But Artland's Lamont McIntosh knocked down consecutive triples to start a 4-14 run to close the first quarter with Dragons up 14-21. Hall's basket kicked off a 4-12 surge to begin the second for a 18-33 Artland advantage. Thierry Rupert scored five points in trimming the deficit to 25-35. But Matt Freije answered with a long-ball and Artland would not let Pau closer in leading 30-44 at the break. David Young hit the first basket of the third period for Pau only to see Thomas knock down back-to-back baskets and Chubb's three-point play made it 32-52. Young and Fein each hit three-pointers in a 10-1 Pau run which cut the gap to 44-55. Artland however would not let Orthez get back into the game and Jan Rohdewald's late three-pointer gave the visitors a 49-64 advantage going into the fourth. Rowland scored the first basket for Artland to start the final period and Madrich's three-ball opened a 20-point gap again at 49-69. Madrid's next basket made it 50-76 with four minutes to play and Artland did not let Pau closer than 18 points the rest of the way.

"We tried to play with determination and intensity but we could not compete with the good team of Artland. We missed too many arguments in the paint to resist and to impose our basket."
FLEMING, CHRIS
Artland Dragons
"The victory in Pau will be very important in a tough group. I am very satisfied with the basket we produced tonight. We always tried to find the best solution and the opened position to score."
