Telekom Baskets Bonn got back to its winning ways, rallying late to edge BCM Gravelines 80-77 on Wednesday. Win improves Bonn to 4-3 in at least a share of the third place in Group D, while Gravelines drops to 5-2, but keeps tiebreaking advantage over Bonn due to an 8-point win in Round 2. Game was a close affair throughout 40 minutes, and Gravelines led 61-67 in the fourth quarter before Tony Gaffney and Jared Jordan hit some big shots, rallying the hosts to victory. Jordan finished with 16 points, Benas Veikalas scored 15, while Jamel McLean amassed 13 points plus 12 rebounds. Marcus Lewis led the visitors with 26 points, 11 rebounds and 6 assists, while John Holland added 11 points and Ousmane Camara 10 in defeat.

Bonn opened the game with 8-4 after a triple from Jordan, before Yannick Bokolo and Lewis got the visitors' offense going. Jordan tied the game at 15-15 at the end of the first quarter, but Ousmane Camara and Jonathan Rousselle made baskets for 15-21 early in the second. But Veikalas and David McCray nailed back-to-back three-pointers, and Veikalas added a jumper for 27-23. Veikalas nailed another triple, but Lewis scored 5 points on the other end, including a shot for 32-32. Before the break, McLean scored 5 points for Bonn, including a basket-plus-foul, but Holland ended the half from long range and 37-35 halftime score. Cyril Akpomedah opened the third quarter with a three-pointer for the visitors, but McLean and Gaffney increased the lead to 43-38. Gravelines stayed in touch with baskets from Lewis and Holland, before regaining lead with back-to-back triples from Rousselle and Juby Johnson, 47-51. McCray scored from downtown for Bonn, and Jordan added a jumper, but Lewis finished the scoring in third quarter with a basket-plus-foul for 54-56. The hosts scored first 5 points of the final quarter, but Gravelines answered with a triple and a steal from Rousselle, sparking a 2-11 spurt. A three-pointer from Johnson made it 61-67, but Veikalas answered right back from downtown. Camara and Lewis made it 66-71, but the hosts answered with a 14-0 run, that included a three-pointer from Gaffney, and also a triple from way downtown from Jordan. Margin reached 80-71, before Lewis scored 6 points to close out the game, and secure Gravelines with a tie-breaking advantage in head-to-head games.

BCM Gravelines Dunkerque
"Congratulations to Bonn for a good game. In the end we did not play to win anymore, but to defend the point differential. We had to deal with the fact that our team is struck by many injuries these days. Bonn was able to force many turnovers in order to grab a commanding lead late in the fourth quarter, what we could not respond to."

"Coach Fischer got us prepared well for the game. Although we had trouble from keeping Gravelines off of our board in the first quarter, we were able to step up over the course of the game. We understand that rebounding is not up to our bigs solely, so our backcourt has to help out - which we did tonight."
ROUSSELLE, JONATHAN
BCM Gravelines Dunkerque
"It was a tough game for us as we gave away many points due to the turnovers we committed. Bonn played fast and beat us many times in transition. We are in a position where we have to build and build over and over again due to our many injuries. Now that we brought in couple new players we hope to grow as a group and still make the next round."
