Saku Suurhall hosted a proper derby tonight in VTB United league where BC Kalev/Cramo defeated Loimaa Bisons in overtime 85 : 79.

New guys at Kalev were on a roll tonight Oleksi Pecherov had 21 points and 9 rebounds while Keith Benson had 20 points and 13 rebounds in his debut for us. Rein Veideman added 13 points and Scott Machado collected another double-double with 12 points and 11 assists. For the visitors Travis Nelson scored 21 points.

After the game coach Varrak was seemingly pleased with the win and complimented Bisons by saying they played great basketball and it wasn’t an easy victory, he added: “They’ve played great their last few games and showed today that they’re not pushovers. The roles for the new guys are still kind of mixed, but we needed to put the ball down low today and it worked. On the bad side, I’m not pleased with our defense, we have a week now to fix our mistakes.

Greg Gibson, coach of Bisons also said that it was a good and interesting game, he added: “My congratulations to Kalev for a good game and I also want to give credit to my guys for putting up a fight. We started awfully but managed to come back.”
