The Take

In a major clash at the top of the group on Tuesday, MHP RIESEN Ludwigsburg (4-2) hosts Herbalife Gran Canaria Las Palmas (5-1), which can qualify to the Last 32 with a win. Ludwigsburg is on a three-game winning streak, but history is not in its favor prior to this game. The two teams have previously played three games and Gran Canaria has cruised by double digits each time, including its 95-75 home win five weeks ago. Gran Canaria is one of four teams averaging more than 10 three-point shots per game (10.2). On Wednesday, Le Mans Sarthe Basket (1-5) hosts Enel Basket Brindisi (1-5) in a must win game for both teams. While Le Mans is trying to snap its four-game slide, Brindisi is coming off its first-ever Eurocup win last week. Also on Wednesday, Grissin Bon Reggio Emilia (3-3) looks to protect its home floor against ALBA Berlin (4-2). Reggio Emilia is undefeated in two home games, where it is shooting well from long range, ranking third among all home teams with 11.5 triples made. ALBA won their Round 2 match, and another win against the same opponent would all but secure its place in the next round.

Quotes Head Coaches

PATRICK, JOHN
MHP RIESEN Ludwigsburg
"We are going to face the first placed team in the group. We lost in Gran Canaria. The question now is what we learn from that experience. We have no pressure considering the injury issues we have and the fact that Gran Canaria is a favorite to win the competition. They also play very strong in the Spanish team. They are the best shooting team we have seen this year."

Players

BOONE, JASON
MHP RIESEN Ludwigsburg
"This game will be a good test for us. They are one of the best teams we played this season. We want to show that we can play with the best teams in Europe. We feel like we are on a streak right now but there is still room for improvement. We want to focus on playing good basketball."
BAEZ, EULIS
Herbalife Gran Canaria Las Palmas
"MHP Riesen Ludwigsburg proved at Gran Canaria how strong they are. They have a deep rotation with many substitutions and we have to be ready for the battle. Even more at their home where they are going to play stronger. We have to focus on our work to think about improving every day and not thinking on their wins or the Eurocup qualification."

MHP RIESEN Ludwigsburg edges Gran Canaria after overtime

MHP RIESEN Ludwigsburg bounced back in overtime to beat Herbalife Gran Canaria Las Palmas 92-89 on Tuesday at MHP Arena. Brad Newley’s three on the buzzer completed a late Gran Canaria comeback to tie it at 81-81 after 40 minutes, but a 7-0 run in the extra session put the hosts in position to win. The victory left the two teams even atop Group B with 5-2 records, though Gran Canaria remains ahead of Ludwigsburg on a tiebreaker thanks to its 20-point victory when they met in Round 2. Tekele Cotton paced the winners with 20 points and Mustafa Shakur added 19 points and 5 assists. Jon Brockman contributed 14 points and 11 rebounds and Rocky Trice scored 10 before fouling out. Kevin Pangos carried Gran Canaria with 31 points on 5-of-8 three-point shooting and 10 free throws without a miss plus 6 assists. Newley added 14 points and Alen Omic scored 11.

Ovidijus Galdikas scored first and Newley added a three in a strong Gran Canaria start. Brockman scored the hosts’ first 6 points to get Ludwigsburg within 1. Shawn Huff put the home team up 11-10 after four minutes. The lead changed hands a number of times with Sasu Salin putting Gran Canaria up 13-15 and Cotton returning the favor for Ludwigsburg. Chris McNaughton lifted the hosts to 21-20 after 10 minutes. Newley scored a three-point play to start the second quarter, but Trice, Cotton and McNaughton put the hosts back ahead. Newley and Pangos each brought Gran Canaria within 1, but Huff and Shakur boosted Ludwigsburg’s lead to 7. Brad Loesing’s triple made it 44-36 at halftime.

Cotton split free throws to make it a 9-point game early in the second half. Pangos sandwiched a pair of threes around one from Shakur to ignite the visitors. Cotton restored a 9-point cushion with his first triple. Gran Canaria roared back with a Pangos three, back-to-back Oriol Pauli triples and a Xavi Rabaseda layup, which capped a 0-11 charge. Brockman tied it at 55-55 through three quarters. The game was as close as could be in the fourth quarter, which featured five lead changes and six ties. It was 75-74 after a pair of Pangos free throws with two minutes to go. Alen Omic’s basket-plus-foul tied it a 77-77 with 1:31 to play. Royce O’Neale free throws put the hosts back ahead with 43 second left and Pangos missed at the other end. Shakur iced the game with a pair of free throws with 13 seconds to go that made it a two-possession game. Jason Boone rejected Salin’s shot, but fouled out on the rebound. Omic made the first free throw and intentionally missed the second. Gran Canaria got the rebound and Newley tied it with a three on the buzzer.

Free throws by Eulius Baez and Pangos kept the momentum with Gran Canaria, but Ludwigsburg was soon in control after a basket by Cotton, three-pointer from Shakur and free throws from Brockman made it 88-84. Pangos broke the 30-point barrier for his night with 2 from the line, however 2 free throws each by O’Neale and Cotton made it a 6-point difference with 18 seconds left. Pauli nailed a three in the closing seconds, but there was no second miracle for the visitors.

MHP RIESEN Ludwigsburg
"It was a very intense game and even though both teams played on Sunday, everybody fought really hard for 45 minutes. We had problems stopping Kevin Pangos and had the chance to finish the game in regulation, but in the end I’m very happy we pulled it out against one of the top teams and one of the best coaches in Europe.“
GARCIA RENESES, AITO
Herbalife Gran Canaria Las Palmas
"I’m happy with the game even though we lost. Ludwigsburg plays with a lot of hunger and intensity, which is hard to match. But we found a way to change the dynamic of the game in the third quarter, so that’s what I’m happy about.”
PAULI, ORIOL
Herbalife Gran Canaria Las Palmas
"It was a game that we can learn many things from, even more in the second half. The game had two faces, in the first one they played more intense than us and in the second one we took a step forward. We always want to win, but these kind of games are good to learn from and to improve ourselves."
