The Take

Among three games on Wednesday, Unics Kazan (4-2) hosts Banvit Bandirma (3-3) in a high-profile clash to open the group's action. Unics holds a 5-0 record in head-to-head meetings with Banvit, all this decade, including a 79-85 decision in Bandirma earlier this season. Since that Round 2 game, however, Banvit has won three of four, and in the last three weeks has scored 86.7 points on average. In addition, Banvit is leading the competition by pulling down 16.2 offensive rebounds per game. Buducnost VOLI Podgorica (2-4) welcomes group co-leader Aris Thessaloniki (4-2) to the Montenegran capital for its first official visit there. Buducnost has committed Eurocup-high 100 turnovers through six games, and will need to cut down on that average of 16.7 against Aris, which makes only 11.5 turnovers per contest and holds opponents to a league-low 24.5% three-point shooting. In a battle of newcomers, Trabzonspor Medical Park (3-3) hosts Steaua CSM Eximbank Bucharest (2-4). Trabzonspor has won all three of its home games so far, while Steaua is still waiting for a first road victory, but defeated Trabzonspor 76-71 in their first meeting back in Round 2.

Quotes Head Coaches

PASHUTIN, EVGENY
Unics Kazan
"Banvit is a serious team. They shoot well out of the arc. We shall keep an eye on Courtney Fortson, A.J.Slaughter and Dominique Johnson, everyone is strong and aggressive, and attacks with a good shooting percentage. There is also a good center with Gasper Vidmar and French forward Adrien Moerman. We remember how Banvit recovered in the fourth quarter when we played them in Bandirma. That means if you ease pressure in defense, they will not hesitate to punish you. We lost rebounds in Turkey in the fourth quarter, which gave them a good chance to return in the game. To be competitive at home, we shall show our best defensive play and neutralize their leaders: Fortson, Slaughter and Johnson. We shall work hard at the arc, pay attention at pick and rolls, and control the rebounds. If we play like we did in Turkey for the first 3 quarters, everything should be OK."

"I played Banvit for the first time this year, and this road win took us a lot of pain, even though we led by 15 at times during the match. I think that all teams in our group are very strong and competitive. Therefore each win doubles its meaning and may be decisive for each team. Banvit has a good roster. They have strong snipers, a good center and a number of competitive small players. It will not be an easy task for us to play them, even though we are at home. Our opponents will be motivated highly and will fight till the very end. I confess, I am expecting an interesting game."

Unics Kazan takes sweep from Banvit

Unics Kazan took a big step towards the next round by beating Banvit Bandirma 78-69. The former Eurocup champions swept the series with Banvit and remain atop Group D with a 5-2 record, while Banvit dropped to 3-4, but is in good position to get a berth into the Last 32. Vadim Panin and Quino Colom fueled a 12-0 run for Kazan early in the second quarter to forge a 29-15 advantage and the hosts never looked back. Colom amassed 23 points plus 5 rebounds, 5 assists and 8 fouls drawn, Artsiom Parakhouski added 11 points with 9 boards and Vadim Panin scored 10 in victory. Dominique Johnson scored 16 on 4-of-6 shooting from downtown for Banvit, Courtney Fortson added 14 points with 7 rebounds and 7 assists while Gasper Vidmar posted 13 points and 11 boards.

Parakhouski scored from the top of the key for an 11-6 margin for the home team. Tolga Gecim hit a three for the visitors, then back-to-back jumper by Marko Banic and Panin gave a 17-11 cushion to Unics. Banic again and Jackie Carmichael exchanged two-pointers to make it 19-15 at the end of the first quarter. Panin and Colom exploded by scoring 12 unanswered points for the first double digit margin for the hosts, 29-15. AJ Slaughter pushed Banvit to 29-21 by scoring off the dribble, but Parakhouski regained a more comfortable difference with his soft touch, 33-21. Despite Slaughter and Vidmar trying to keep the visitors on track, a deep three by Colom made it 40-25 at halftime.

Valeriy Likhodey hit from downtown to extend the difference to 47-29. Banvit answered with 7 consecutive points and climbed within 47-36 before after another triple by Likhodey and a three-point-play by Fortson got Banvit within 50-43. Keith Langford boosted his side, but it was Anton Ponkrashov from downtown that made it 63-48. Gecim fixed the score at 63-50 after three quarters. Fortson and Johnson tried to lead Banvit back at 70-63 with less than three minutes left, but Panin and Fortson exchanged triples while Colom crowned his great game from the foul line to seal an Unics victory.

"Banvit had its rhythm and played well on the glass, therefore they managed to stay within 8 to 10 points of us. We were not that fresh because we had a tough game against Khimki on Sunday. We missed a number of open shots, but made up for this with the help of tough defense."
ERNAK, SELÇUK
Banvit Bandirma
"I congratulate Unics for the win. Today we were not so good offensively and made too many unforced mistakes. It is not that easy to play a team like Unics on the road having so many unforced mistakes. We could expect such a good game from Colom. He played well in Turkey and scored a lot of points. After that he had some relatively bad games, but this player has quality and is very talented, so it was not a surprise for us that he can be very dangerous."
