Basketball: Asvel beats Gravelines in overtime

Villeurbanne had to go through overtime to overcome Gravelines (86-83) and regain its second place in the standings at Paris Basketball, Sunday during the 26th day of the French championship.

This is the second time in two Elite outings that Asvel has been pushed into overtime after its setback against Chalon-sur-Saône (88-87) two weeks ago.

It took a shot behind the arc full of nerve from Paris Lee (21 pts) in the last second for Pierric Poupet's men to win. Manhandled by the BCM in the fight for its survival, Tony Parker's club had to sign an 8-0 to get back together at the start of the last quarter (63-63).

Then Mike Stockton (18 pts), son of ex-NBA star John Stockton, almost allowed the Northerners to snatch a second overtime by bringing his team back (83-83) thanks to a lay-up enhanced by a free throw, converted.

In addition to Lee, particularly precise at three points (4/6), American interior Mike Scott stood out with his points record (23) since joining Villeurbanne.
