A breakout showing by Vafessa Fofana handed shorthanded Cholet the win, 79-70, over AEK at the La Meilleraie Tuesday.
Fofana in a larger role with several players out went for a personal-best 22 points behind 10/13 field goals. Gregor Hrovat and Michael Stockton punched in 14 points apiece.
Erman Kunter’s side made its first ten field goals for a quick lead but ultimately came back in the fourth quarter of the Basketball Champions League Regular Season Gameday 7 contest jumping to 1-3 in Group C and avoiding elimination.
The first-ever BCL win for Cholet dropped the Greek club to 3-1. Keith Langford banking a team-high 22 points was not enough for the fourth “W”. Yanick Moreira, star of the reverse tilt, posted a 19-point, 12-rebound double-double.
