The Take

In a classic Eurocup matchup, ALBA Berlin (4-3) hosts Le Mans Sarthe Basket (2-5) knowing a win would send it to the Last 32. Earlier in the season ALBA had a four-game winning streak during which it beat Le Mans on the road 84-88, but the German side has dropped its last two games. Le Mans looks to build on its recent performances, especially on the defensive end, where they allow only 67.7 points in the last three games. Grissin Bon Reggio Emilia (4-3) welcomes MHP RIESEN Ludwigsburg (5-2). Both teams can qualify to the Last 32 after this game. Reggio Emilia needs a win and a loss by Le Mans, while Ludwigsburg goes through with either a win or a Le Mans defeat. Enel Basket Brindisi (1-6) hopes to avoid elimination at home against the already-qualified Herbalife Gran Canaria Las Palmas (5-2). Brindisi needs to win out, and get a lot of help from other results to have any chance at the next round. Gran Canaria, last year runner-up, won their Round 3 game 103-76 and looks for a sweep as it aims to finish first in the group.

Quotes Head Coaches

GONZALEZ, ISRAEL
Herbalife Gran Canaria Las Palmas
"We have to focus on our mistakes and learn from Valencia's game and recover as soon as possible for this game versus Enel Basket Brindisi. They have it very difficult to qualify, but they play in their court and for sure they will want to give their best in front of their fans. We have to recover our sensations, to try to play with our energy and especially do our things good. We have to adjust to their individual skills, but mainly we have to do our basketball. With Aito's absence, everyone must take a step forward and the veteran players will have a leader role in this."

Players

OLIVER, ALBERT
Herbalife Gran Canaria Las Palmas
"We have to improve from our game in Valencia in the Spanish League and change our image. Every team in Eurocup plays hard, we expect that Brindisi will play better in their court. This game is essential for their qualification. We want to be first, better than fourth. We have to do our things better and keep growing as a team."

Gran Canaria easies past Brindisi into the first place

Previously qualified Herbalife Gran Canaria Las Palmas cruised to a comfortable 71-88 road win over Enel Basket Brindisi. Gran Canaria improved to 6-2, and jumped into the sole possession of the first place in Group B with a 6-2 record, in the process eliminating 1-7 Brindisi from Last 32 contention. Sasu Salin netted 21 points on 5-for-8 three point shooting. Alen Omic amassed 17 points plus 11 rebounds, Eulis Baez collected 14 points, 7 rebounds, 6 assists and 3 steals, while Kevin Pangod chipped in with 10 points in victory. Alex Harris had 20 points, 6 rebounds and 5 steals for Brindisi. Djordje Gagic scored 12, and Nemanja Milosevic 10 points for the hosts.

Salin and Pangos each scored a pair of baskets, and with contributions from Brad Newley, Baez and Omic, Gran Canaria opened 6-16 lead. Gagic, David Cournooh and Milosevic kept the visitors from pulling away even more, but a triple from Xavi Rabaseda helped make it 12-25 after 10 minutes. Baskets from Omic and Sitapha Savane opened 14-30, before Harris and Matteo De Gennaro hit back-to-back from long range for Brindisi, 22-33. But Salin’s three triples and a fastbreak basket from Newley helped made it 28-45, before Adrian Banks and Domenico Marzaioli made the score 33-46 at halftime.

Baez hit from downtown for Gran Canaria to start the third, but Gagic, Banks and a three-point play from Harris got Brindisi going. Cournooh briefly cut it to 42-51, but Omic scored twice inside before Salin joined in on the fun from the outside, 44-62. Savane sparked another 0-6 run that made it 46-68 with under 3 minutes left to play in the third. Harris hit for three in the third and scored a fastbreak basket early in the fourth, helping Brindisi cut it to 57-68. However, what followed was another run by Gran Canaria, sparked by Baez, continued by Rabaseda and Salin, and eventually capped by a three-pointer from Pangos, 59-88. After a 2-20 run from Gran Canaria, the hosts scored the final 13 points of the game, to cut the final deficit to 16 points.

Head Coaches

BUCCHI, PIERO
Enel Basket Brindisi
"In this game, we balanced all the minutes between the players that we had due to injuries to three players and someone else with a physical problem. This was a chance for Milosevic to gain confidence and play without pressure."
GONZALEZ, ISRAEL
Herbalife Gran Canaria Las Palmas
"I want to thank my players since tonight they were overwhelmed by the absence of our head coach. We played good defense and we played with a good intensity. We began really well with good defense and fast breaks. We had an early advantage and with it we gained confidence. Then we had good and bad moments, but always with high rhythm and intensity."

Players

HARRIS, ALEX
Enel Basket Brindisi
"This was a hard game against a strong team. Right now I just wonder what we could have done in this round of the Eurocup if we weren't so unlucky with all the injuries we had, but we have to move on from this loss and think already about the next game. I really appreciate the fact that at the end of the game, our fans paid tribute to us with a standing ovation."
SALIN, SASU
Herbalife Gran Canaria Las Palmas
"The situation before the game was not easy. We were missing our coach and a couple of players and we have to send one man during the trip back home. I think we showed a good effort tonight, we played hard even though we had bad moments in the game. After all, we played a very solid game. We will try to go as far as we can in this competition."
