The Take

Riding a three-game winning streak, Proximus Spirou Charleroi (3-5) hopes to continue its run when last-place SLUC Nancy (1-7) pays a visit on Tuesday. Spirou's three wins in a row followed five losses to open the season, but a victory would keep it in Last 32 contention. Nancy would also keep its mathematical chances to qualify with a win, at least until ratiopahrm Ulm (3-5) meets CAI Zaragoza (5-3) at home on Wednesday. CAI won their Round 4 game 69-59, and that 10-point margin is something CAI will try to protect. However, CAI enters this clash knowing it will qualify for the Last 32 with a win, but also with a loss by Spirou. Ulm needs a win, and help from Nancy to qualify - in case Ulm wins, and Nancy beats Spirou, then both CAI and Ulm will book their Last 32 tickets. That also is the case with Umana Reyer Venice (4-4), which hosts undefeated Valencia Basket (8-0) on Wednesday. Venice moves to the next stage either with a win, or a loss by Spirou. On the other hand, Valencia will look to keep its undefeated run going, as it has already clinched the first place in Group C.

Quotes Head Coaches

RECALCATI, CARLO
Umana Reyer Venice
"They didn't lost until now! It is true they were close to lose some games but they beat everyone until now. They have 13 players and the one who played more in Van Rossom at just 23 minutes per game. That means Valencia distributed its energy and efforts a lot. We want to try to make it to the Last 32 and cannot afford any letdown because of our tie-break disadvantages. We will check out the standings in the end but first, we want to win another game. It is exciting to play against Valencia. They dominated us in Valencia and it is time for us to find out if we got better and are able to compete against them."

Players

VIGGIANO, JEFF
Umana Reyer Venice
"Valencia is a very good team and we cannot think about last defeat (in the Italian League) against Cantu. It is better to worry about Valencia and the opportunity we have to win and move on to the next round. Valencia is more than a complete team, they have 7-8 players who can score 10-15 points. We didn't play any defense against Cantu. We have to fight, play with more pride and perform better."

Dubljevic returns, keeps Valencia undefeated

Valencia Basket stayed as the only team undefeated in the competition by downing Umana Reyer Venice 58-62 on the road on Wednesday.

A layup by Stefano Tonut gave Venice its first lead, 42-41, midway through the third quarter. Valencia regained a 44-45 edge after 30 minutes and extended it to 53-59 with 3 minutes left behind an outstanding Dubljevic.

Trias scored again, Peric banked in a running shot and a corner three-pointer by Lucic kept Valencia way ahead, 5-13. Stefansson beat the shot clock buzzer with a big basket and free throws by a recovered Dubljevic boosted the guests' lead to 5-17. Stefansson kept pacing Valencia with a layup which Goss matched with an off-balance basket. A put-bacl dunk by Owens kept Venice within 9-19 after 10 minutes. Owens scored again early in the second quarter but Justin Hamilton did better with a bomb from downtown. Owens dunked again and a corner triple by Viggiano made Valencia call timeout at 16-22. Mike Bramos and Stefansson joined the three-point shootout, Owens kept pacing Venice with another basket but an off-balance layup by Guillem Vives restored a 21-27 Valencia lead. Bramos downed another triple but Rafa Martinez answered from downtown. Dubljevic sank a three-pointer but free throws by Bramos and Mike Green kept Venice within 26-33 at halftime.

Owens scored again immediately after the break and even when Fernando San Emeterio made free throws, a big basket by Goss and a three-point play by Peric kept Venice within 33-35. Trias stepped up with back-to-back baskets and a power layup by Benjamin Ortner ignited the crowd at 35-39. Peric took over with a three-pointer and a layup by Dubljevic gave Valencia some fresh air at 38-41. Both teams struggled to score for almost 2 minutes until Goss made free throws. A layup by Tonut gave Venice its first lead, 42-41. Valencia called timeout and Antoine Diot hit foul shots, Green answered with a driving layup and Dubljevic put Valencia back ahead, 44-45, after 30 minutes. John Shurna and Tonut exchanged baskets early in the fourth quarter and a jump hook by Dubljevic made Venice call timeout at 46-49. Shurna buried a three-pointer but Tonut answered from beyond the arc. Lucic stepped up with an up-and-under layup, Green scored in the low post and another jump hook by Dubljevic kept Valencia way ahead, 51-56. Green scored again and a three-pointer by an unstoppable Dubljevic gave the guests a 53-59 lead with 3 minutes to go. Peric dunked and a three-pointer by Godd gave Venice hope at 58-61 with under a minute left. A free throw by San Emeterio sealed the outcome with 12 seconds to go.

Umana Reyer Venice
"It's a sin; we played a good game with a lot of energy on the court. We have to be happy because we needed a game like this. We played good defense and suffered some baskets at the 24-second buzzer because of their talent. We wanted to celebrate the qualification with a W, but we have to be confident because we showed we can compete at this level. We have to be satisfied to move ahead in the Eurocup, because it's a great result and we have to be proud of that."
MARTINEZ, PEDRO
Valencia Basket
"Very tough game, we had some problems developing our offense because Umana Reyer Venice played great defense pressing the ball. We weren't confident, especially in the second and in the third quarters. Our defense was good enough not to allow easy baskets to Venice and in a close game like this our experience players make the difference. We scored free throws and played great defense down the stretch and at the end we won."

Players

OWENS, JOSH
Umana Reyer Venice
"We played aggressive, a great game defensively leaving Valencia at 62 points scored. It was a close game and they were better down the stretch. We need to take the positive stuff from this game and think immediately about the next one. Valencia is a very good team, undefeated so far, and in my opinion they are that good because their teamwork. We are happy for the qualification, but we need to stay focus on the next step."
DUBLJEVIC, BOJAN
Valencia Basket
"I think this is an important win for us. For sure not the best game, but winning here in Venice is not easy. This win gives us confidence and we have to keep pushing and playing hard. Defense is the most important part of the game to have success and I think this win and the one in Ulm came from our defensive effort."
