The Take

Newcomer Trabzonspor Medical Park hosts Aris Thessaloniki in a contest of two clubs with large and passionate fan bases. Not only is this the first meeting between them, but Trabzonspor has never played a Greek club, while Aris has not played in Turkey in seven years. Former champion and perennial Eurocup contender Unics Kazan opens its season at home against the debutante Steau CSM Eximbank Bucharest. The hosts are appearing in the Eurocup for the ninth time in the past 10 years and have played a competition-best 133 games in that period, 23 more than the second best team. In a battle of two classic Eurocup teams, perennial Montenegrin champion Buducnost VOLI Podgorica welcomes Banvit Bandirma. These two teams have combined to play 166 Eurocup games between them, and for each this is sixth consecutive season in the competition. They have played each other six times in that span, with Banvit holding a 4-2 edge after sweeping their Last 32 series last season.

Quotes Head Coaches

JOVOVIC, IGOR
Buducnost VOLI Podgorica
"The main task is to convince ourselves that we can play with teams like Banvit. They are very good, with a lot of international players. But at home we have to try making a surprise. We looked at their warm-up games, they beat CSKA, and we saw exceptional individual qualities. There are many new players and maybe some of their current not well-trained could be our advantage. We're in good rhythm and now we have to show our mettle."

DRAGICEVIC, TADIJA
Buducnost VOLI Podgorica
"Banvit is one of the favorites in the group, so we expect a very tough game, especially because of the pace at the start of the season, every second day for the game. We do not have much time to get ready, but I think we're playing better and better, especially in defense."

Buducnost handles Banvit in season opener

Buducnost VOLI Podgorica made a statement in its first Eurocup game of the season, downing visiting Banvit Bandirma 83-70 on Wednesday. Buducnost joined Trabzonspor Medical Park and Unics Kazan with 1-0 record in Group D after the opening round. Tadija Dragicevic scored 20 points to pace the hosts who also had Suad Sehovic finish with 16 points, 5 rebounds and 4 steals. Bojan Subotic had 11 points, while Omar Cook had 8 points and 12 rebounds in victory. Dominique Johnson led Banvit with 15 points, 5 rebounds and 4 steals, Courtney Fortson scored 11, while Gasper Vidmar collected 10 points plus 8 boards for the visitors who grabbed 18 offensive rebounds. But it was Buducnost that grabbed the lead for good in the first quarter, and went on to build a double-digit lead before halftime. After the break Banvit cut it to 63-57, but that is as close as they got.

A three-point play, followed by back-to-back triples from Adrien Moerman and Johnson gave Banvit an early 5-11 advantage. But Buducnost replied through Sead Sehovic and Robert Rikic, before a triple from Suad Sehovic helped tie the game at 14-14. A fastbreak layup from Sead Sehovic gave Buducnost the lead, and with baskets from Dragicevic and Ognjen Carapic, the hosts built 24-18 lead at the end of the first quarter. Keith Simmons and Vidmar opened the second quarter with baskets for Banvit, but Aleks Maric inside and Dragicevic from the outside made it 31-22 Buducnost. Moerman and Joseph Devoe traded threes, as Buducnost held on defensively and took 40-29 lead into halftime.

Banvit had a strong start to the third quarter, with a put-back from Vidmar and a fastbreak bucket from Johnson that cut it to 40-35. But Suad Sehovic got the hosts going, hitting a basket then assisting Cook for a three-pointer and 45-37. Cook returned a favor with an assist for Suad Sehovic’s fastbreak layup, then fed Subotic for a three-point play and 52-41. A.J. Slaughter hit a three, but consecutive baskets by Suad Sehovic extended the margin to 58-45. Banvit cut it to 59-50 to end the third, and A.J. Slaughter scored five points in the fourth to make it 63-57. But Sead Sehovic scored on a fast break, Dragicevic hit a basket of his own, before Subotic made 3 of 3 from the foul line and followed it with a three-pointer to push the margin to 73-59 with under 4 minutes left. Nurset Yildrim scored twice for the visitors, but Dragicevic nailed another three, then had a three-point play for 81-65, icing the game.

Buducnost VOLI Podgorica
"Huge congratulations to the players and everyone at the club for the very significant victory, primarily for basketball in Podgorica. All could see the individual quality Banvit has, but we left the last atom of strength in the field. We played with the heart, very good defense the entire match. We brought them into a situation where they had a very bad shot that they seek through their systems. This is our best game of the season, and Banvit is the best team of all with whom we played. "
ERNAK, SELÇUK
Banvit Bandirma
"Buducnost VOLI is much better prepared team than us. Games in the ABA league show they are in good shape. If you want to control the game, you must impose a rhythm. On offense we could not realize continuity and that brought nervousness in defense."
