The Take

In a high-profile clash, already-qualified group leader Herbalife Gran Canaria Las Palmas (6-2) welcomes ALBA Berlin (4-4). The hosts force 17.1 turnovers per game, second-most in the competition, and need a win that would inch them closer to clinching first place. ALBA can make Last 32 if it wins and Grissin Bon Reggio Emilia (5-3) beats Le Mans Sarthe Basket (3-5) on the road. Le Mans and Round 8 MVP Tywain McKee are seeking for a third straight win to stay in Last 32 contention. During the winning streak, Le Mans has led the Eurocup in offensive rebounding with 16.7 over the last three games. Reggio Emilia is all but qualified, and needs either a win or a loss of 7 points or less to advance. Already-eliminated Enel Basket Brindisi (1-7) welcomes MHP RIESEN Ludwigsburg (5-3) as the visitors will book a place in the last 32 with a victory. Ludwigsburg also qualifies with a loss and a win by Gran Canaria.

Quotes Head Coaches

PATRICK, JOHN
MHP RIESEN Ludwigsburg
"It’s a matchball for us. We have the chance to clinch a spot among the Last 32 of Eurocup. We want to play a good game especially after the dissatisfying last games in Eurocup and in the German league. The game at Brindisi will be a character test for us. We want to take the chance of icing the Last 32 round."

Players

TRICE, ROCKY
MHP RIESEN Ludwigsburg
"It’s going to be another tough game for us. Last time we got the win against Brindisi but it really has been a tough game. They have a couple of really dangerous players. We have to play good defense and limit their shots. We have to get back to what we do best after our recent losses."

MHP RIESEN Ludwigsburg past Brindisi and into Last 32

MHP RIESEN Ludwigsburg advanced to the Last 32 by racing past Enel Basket Brindisi 60-87 on the road in Group B. Ludwigsburg picked up its fifth win in the last six games to improve to 6-3 in the group. Jason Boone led Ludwigsburg with 16 points, while Tekele Cotton and Royce O’Neale both scored 13 points and Rocky Trice chipped in 10 points and 6 steals. Brindisi dropped to 1-8 despite Nemanja Milosevic collecting 13 points and 12 rebounds, while Djordje Gagic scored 12 points and Kenneth Kadji added 11 points.

Cotton opened the scoring for Ludwigsburg and Gagic got Brindisi on the board right after that. The hosts went ahead for the first time on Adrian Banks’s three-ball for 7-4. Trice pushed Ludwigsburg back ahead at 9-10 and three Boone baskets made it 10-16. Gagic’s three-point play got the gap down to 15-18 but Alvaro Munoz-Borchers’s long ball had Ludwigsburg up 17-23. A foul shot by Milosevic left it 20-23 after 10 minutes. O’Neale’s triple increased the lead to 20-26 before Cotton and O’Neale tallied for a 22-30 cushion. Despite the guests going scoreless for 4:45 minutes, Brindisi could not pull ahead though Kadji scored five points to make it 29-30. Cotton ended the drought and Boone and Cotton combined for three free throws as the lead was back to 30-35. Trice scored his third basket of the game for the guests and O’Neale knocked down back-to-back long-balls as the Ludwigsburg cushion was up to 32-43 at intermission.

Gagic scored the first five points of the second half for Brindisi to get the hosts to within 37-45. O’Neale and Trice scored to re-establish a 10-point lead and the advantage was 41-54 after two Boone free throws and a score from Mustafa Shakur. Ludwigsburg went scoreless for two minutes and Brindisi got a three-pointer from Alex Harris and a score from Durand Scott to cut the deficit to 47-54. Chris McNaughton answered with four straight points and another score after a Brad Loesing basket as Ludwigsburg raced ahead 47-62. Two Scott free throws made it 49-62 after 30 minutes. Adam Waleskowski opened the fourth for Ludwigsburg to re-establish a 15-point lead. Kadji answered with a three-ball and made it 54-66, but the hosts went scoreless over the next 2:44 minutes and Cotton had a basket and assist as the lead grew to 54-72 with seven minutes to play. Domenico Marzaioli snapped the scoring drought with a three-pointer but Brindisi failed to score for the next 3:16 minutes. Ludwigsburg finished off the game for good with an 0-10 run for a 57-82 advantage with about two minutes to play.
