THE TAKE

A potentially decisive Group D game will take place in Bandirma, Turkey, on Wednesday, when Banvit and Valencia face one another. The two clubs share first place in the table with 3-1 records. Valencia will advance to the next round just by winning, while Banvit could go ahead if Wurzburg loses in Mariupol. In the opening match, played in Valencia, the host got an 88-78 win, thanks to 23 points nailed by Pau Ribas from the bench. Ribas and Rodrigo San Miguel will battle with Kalin Lucas, the decision maker for Banvit. Lucas’s assists will be aimed for scoring ace Sammy Mejia, who will be involved in a spectacular matchup with Valencia’s Rafa Martinez. Under the boards, Chuck Davis, Vladimir Stimac and Kenjan Bajramovic off the bench combined for 56 points and 31 rebounds for Banvit last time around. Considering Serhiy Lischuk’s injury, it won't be easy for Valencia big men Justin Doellman, Bojan Dubljevic and newcomer Jeffrey Lauvergne to fight with them.

Quotes Head Coaches

Banvit BK Bandirma
"Azovmash was a great win for us on the road that keeps our chances to finish the group first. However, three teams still fight for the first 2 spots in the group. Each game is more important than ever in the group now. We will try to get the best out of the home court advantage against Valencia this week and take a big step to qualify to the Last 16."
PERASOVIC, VELIMIR
Valencia Basket
"I think that, at this point, nobody doubts about the quality of Banvit. So far they have only lost two games this season, one against us and one against Anadolu Efes in the Turkish League, where they rank second. They are hard to beat in their gym. To me, the most important thing now is to get to the Last 16 and our first chance is through beating Banvit."

"We are playing better basketball these last weeks but it still will be a very tough game this week against Valencia. It is a good advantage that we play at home. Our fans will witness very tough and good games."
DUBLJEVIC, BOJAN
Valencia Basket
"We have a tough game ahead of us because Banvit really is a great team. They showed that in Valencia and they play even better at home. Their gym is really difficult but this is a crucial game for us in order to earn passage to the Eurocup Last 16. Defense will be key for us to win in Turkey. We have three injured players and it affects our preparation of the games, but I think that we are doing well so far."
Justin Doellman - Valencia Basket - EC12 (photo s.Oliver Baskets)Valencia Basket became the Group D champion by topping Banvit BK Bandirma in Turkey on Wednesday. Valencia improved to 4-1 and won Group D due to its tie-break advantage against both Banvit and s.Oliver Baskets Wuerzburg, who tie for second place each with a 3-2 record. Banvit and Wuerzburg face each other in Germany next week in a winner-take-all showdown for second place. Valencia broke Banvit's eight-game home winning streak in the competition, handing the hosts its first Eurocup home loss since 2010. Justin Doellman paced the winners with 27 points on 9-of-10 two-point shots and 3-of-3 three-pointers. Thomas Kelati added 18, all in the first half, and Rafa Martinez has 12 for Valencia. Kalin Lucas led Banvit with 16 points. Vladimir Stimac added 14 while Sammy Mejia had 13 for the hosts. Kelati sank 6 three-pointers before halftime to give Valencia a 34-42 lead at the break. Banvit rallied after the break and managed to get a 65-61 lead early in the fourth quarter but an unstoppable Doellman led a 0-19 run that allowed Valencia to seal the outcome minutes before the final buzzer.

Stimac got Banvit going with a layup that Kelati bettered with a triple for a 2-3 Valencia lead. Stimac insisted with a put-back basket but a dunk by Flo Pietrus and free throws by Bojan Dubljevic kept Valencia ahead, 4-7. Martinez and Keith Simmons traded layups and Lucas brought Banvit within 8-9. Kelati downed his second three-pointer but an unstoppable Stimac quickly tied the game at 12-12. Doellman shined with a put-back layup and a red hot Kelati struck twice from downtown for a 12-20 Valencia edge, after an 0-8 run. Mejia followed a put-back layup with free throws but Doelmann shined with a turnaround jumper. A foul shot by Kenan Barjamovic and a buzzer-beating basket by Mejia kept Banvit within 19-22 after 10 minutes. Doellman struck from downtown early in the second quarter but consecutive layups by Mejia and Barjamovic made it a two-point game, 23-25. Doellman scored again, Barjamovic and Kelati traded three-pointers and a dunk by Simmons brought Banvit as close as 28-30. Joffrey Lauvergne split free throws and shocked the crowd with a put-back slam in a 0-7 run that Chris Quinn capped with a floating layup, good for a 28-37 Valencia lead. Simmons and Martinez exchanged baskets and a put-back layup by Stimac kept the hosts within 32-39. Kelati - who else? - sank his sixth triple and a close basket by Stimac fixed the halftime score at 34-42.

Mejia struck from downtown immediately after the break and a jumper by Erkan Veyseloglu got the crowd involved at 39-42. Dubljevic stepped up with a layup and followed that with free throws to keep Valencia out of trouble, 39-46. Lucas nailed a jumper and another close basket by Stimac forced the guests to call timeout at 43-46. Valencia kept struggling to score and Lucas singlehandedly put Banvit back ahead, 47-46. Dubljevic scored again but an unstoppable Lucas took over with back-to-back baskets in a 6-0 Banvit run that Mejia capped with a jumper. Mejia hit another shot and Barjamovic struck from downtown but Doellman managed to bring Valencia within 58-55. Chuck Davis shined with a three-point play but free throws by Martinez kept Valencia as close as 61-57 after 30 minutes. Davis dunked it early in the fourth quarter but back-to-back baskets by Pietrus and Doellman brought Valencia within 63-61. Safak Edge hit a jumper but Doellman shined with an alleyoop dunk and followed Rodrigo San Miguel's three-pointer with his own shot from downtown for a 65-69 lead with 6 minutes to go. Martinez nailed a jumper and Doellman scored again, as Banvit struggled to find the way to the basket right when it mattered most. Doellman banked in a shot and a layup by Martinez sealed the outcome, 65-78, allowed Valencia to celebrate a big, pivotal win.

"We started the game badly. However, we found the rhythm in the third quarter. But we got tired against one of the best teams in Spain. We will try to win last game in Germany."
PERASOVIC, VELIMIR
Valencia Basket
"I think that it really was a Euroleague-level game against a very talented team, with first-class players. We struggled in the third quarter, but the team responded well, first with a great performance from Kelati in the first half and then with Doellman at the end of the game. Their extraordinary effort helped us to win in a very difficult court."

KELATI, THOMAS
Valencia Basket
"We knew that it was going to be very tough game. Banvit did not lose at home in a long time. I started the game very good and Justin carried on in the second half. Anybody can score on any given night. That’s the strength of the team. I am just happy to qualify to the Last 16. "
