Ajou Deng
Ajou Ajou Deng (210-C-79, college: Fairfield) nailed 19 points for the Guildford Heat which downfall continued yesterday as they suffered the 8th straight defeat in the ULEB Cup season. This time Guildford were unable to cope with ALBA Berlin at the Guildford Spectrum. ALBA meanwhile posted an important victory as they improved to 4-4 record and climbed to the third spot in Group A ladder.
The Heat were impressive at the start as they scored 11 unanswered points to get the game going at 19:8. However ALBA responded pretty quickly organizing a 21:0 rally of their own to step in front. Guildford needed trebles from James Jones and Ajou Ajou Deng to get back on track. But Booby Brown replied with a three-pointer to put ALBA up by 4 points at the interval. The teams were tied for a couple of times in the third stanza before Julius Jenkins fueled a 7:0 run from ALBA to secure a 59:53 lead at final intermission. The hosts cut the gap to just a single point with under 5 minutes left in the game but it was never enough. Bobby Brown came up with 5 straight points for ALBA to put them away for good. Goran Nikolic nailed 15 points for ALBA. Patrick Femerling produced 14 points and 13 boards, while Julius Jenkins and Bobby Brown ended with 12 points apiece for the winners. Daniel Gilbert scored 18 points in defeat. Guildford will remain at home for the next game against Siauliai in ULEB Cup. ALBA travels back home to take on Turk Telekom on January 15.
