After an overtime loss on the road, Perfumerias (2-1) returned home to recover against Real Club Celta Vigo (2-1). A strong third quarter and a fantastic game from Sancho Lyttle assured an 84-61 win for Perfumerias.
The box score is here. As with the Ros Casares games, there are no write-ups yet and no pictures. Maybe we'll have those, maybe we won't. Perfumerias won every single quarter of the game, with Perfumerias leading by 10 at the half and 22 after three quarters.
A look at the Four Factors of the game:
Field goal percentage: Perfumerias 44 percent, Vigo 35 percent. Both teams shot a lot of 3-pointers, but they hit any of them. Perfumerias went 3-for-21 and Vigo went 3-for-17.
Turnovers: Perfumerias 13, Vigo 21. Vigo might have quite literally given the game away.
Offensive rebound percentage: Perfumerias 39 percent, Vigo 33 percent. Oddly enough, Sancho Lyttle only had one offensive rebound.
