Perkins scores 11 in Game 1 loss (Basketball)
Anchorage’s Doron Perkins got his first taste of the Euroleague Top 16 playoffs Thursday and it left a bitter taste in his mouth.
Perkins and Israeli power Maccabi Electra lost 76-72 to Italian champion Montepaschi in Game 1 of Group F play.
The 6-foot-2 guard, of Bartlett High fame, pumped in 11 points on 4-of-10 shooting. He added three rebounds and a team-high four assists.
Perkins averaged 8.5 points per game in Euroleague play, so the postseason is bringing out his best.
