The Take

In a high-profile showdown, Aris Thessaloniki (4-3) hosts Unics Kazan (5-2). The first clash between two sides this season went into overtime, and Aris prevailed on the road 73-74. Aris is 3-0 at home this season, but Unics arrives knowing it can clinch a Last 32 berth with a victory. Banvit Banidrma (3-4) looks to get back to the winning ways at home against Steaua CSM Eximbank Bucharest (2-5). It’s a must-win game for both teams. A victory would boost the Last 32 chances for Banvit, the competition's best offensive rebounding team at 15.4 per game, while the same result for Steaua would keep its hopes to advace alive. Buducnost VOLI Podgorica (3-4) aims to stay unbeaten at home when Trabzonspor Medical Park (4-3) pays a visit. Buducnost is 3-0 in Podgorica this season, and has won each of those games by a double-digit margin. It will be important for the Montenegrin champs to continue that streak against Trabzonspor, which won their Round 3 game 75-71. Trabzonspor has yet to win on the road in Eurocup, but if it does so in Podgorica, and Banvit beats Steaua, it would qualify for the Last 32.

Slaughter struck from downtown and Carmichael added a fast break slam that gave Banvit a 27-23 lead. Carmichael dunked again and a put-back layup by Johnson boosted the hosts' lead to 31-25. A triple by Yildirim made Steaua stop the game at 34-25. Rasic hit another three-pointer and a fast break layup by Lee gave the guests hope at 34-29.

Nicoara stepped up with a put-back basket soon after the break and Lee scored again to keep Steaua within 45-37. Yildirim buried his third triple and soon added another basket to keep Banvit out of trouble, 50-37. A three-pointer by Fortson made the guests call timeout at 53-37. Rasic tried to change things for a basket, Moerman answered with a tip-in and a put-back layup by Nicoara brought the guests a bit closer, 55-41. Rasic and Bill Amis made free throws and a fast break layup by Mihail Paul got Steaua within single digits, 55-47. Carmichael scored in the paint, Vidmar split free throws and three-pointers by Marinovic and Johnson fixed the score at 61-50 after 30 minutes. Johnson insisted from downtown early in the fourth quarter and soon added a jumper which made it a 16-point game, 66-50. Lee banked in a running hook and added a layup but a wide open triple by Fortson restored a 69-54 Banvit margin with 7 minutes left. A red hot Johnson buried yet another triple and a huge dunk by Moerman sealed the outcome, 74-54, midway through the fourth quarter. Steaua struggled to score when it mattered most while Fortson and Moerman made sure all Banvit fans celebrated an important home win.

"We played with a good defensive mentality and kept our opponent to 60 points. If we keep continue this defensive mentality, we will have a lot of wins. Next week will be a do-or-die week for our group. Our preparation will be on for it. "
SAPERA, HRISTU
Steaua CSM EximBank Bucharest
"We expected a tough game here. We able to succeed this in first three quarters, but in the last quarter the individual capability of Banvit made the difference. Today Banvit played better and they deserved the win. But the most important reason for our defeat was the percentage on three-pointers."
