Lietkabelis erases 20-point deficit to beat Ulm

Lietkabelis Panevezys erased a 20-point deficit to beat ratiophram Ulm 81-86 in both teams final EuroCup game for the season. Lietkabelis improved to 2-4 after a sweep of Ulm to finish third in Group F in its first season in the competition. Ulm fell to 0-6. Darjus Lavrinovic and Ben Madgen scored 20 points each and Gintaras Leonavicius added 17 to lead the winners. Lorenzo Williams dished 8 assists for Lietkabelis to help the team make 13 of 25 three-point shots (52%). Chris Babb and Raymar Morgan paced Ulm with 13 points apiece, Da’Sean Butler scored 11 and Marcell Pongo had 10 in defeat. Ulm outrebounded Lietkabelis 33-21, but made only 16 of 29 free throws (55.2%).

The hosts took charge from the start with the game’s first three baskets. Leonavicius kept Lietkabelis in the picture, but a Braydon Hobbs triple gave Ulm its first double-digit lead at 18-7. The lead continued to grow as Babb and Butler added three with the margin hitting 34-18 after 10 minutes. A pair of Jonas Wohlfarth put-backs made it a 20-point game at 43-23. Darjus Lavrinovic scored 5 points in a 0-12 run that got the visitors back in the game at 47-43. Bjoern Rohwer split free throws to give Ulm a 50-45 halftime lead. Back-to-back threes by Darjus Lavrinovic and Leonavicius drained back-to-back threes early in the second half to complete the comeback and tie the game at 52-52 before Zygimantas Skucas gave Lietkabelis its first lead of the game. After Ulm went back ahead, Ksistof Lavrinovic free throws narrowed the difference to 67-64 through three quarters. Pongo connected from downtown to extend the Ulm margin to 6, but Lietkabelis came back with a 0-11 run, which was bookended by threes from Leonavicius and Tada Rinkunas to lead 75-80 with three minutes to play. Baskets by Babb and Butler got Ulm within 81-82 inside the last minute, but Madgen made 3 free throws over the next two possessions and Ulm missed its last three shots to end the game.

"First of all, I think that we substituted too much in the second quarter, so we lost our rhythm. That could be the case if you want to play all of your players. But in the end it was counterproductive. I can name three reasons that we lost after 12 good minutes: it was the physicality, that we concentrated too much on the referees and the free throws."
MAKSVYTIS, KAZYS
Lietkabelis Panevezys
"First of all we were happy to play here. It’s very nice here and the people were supporting both teams very well. We started really bad, but I am happy that with our defense and offense we came back into the game. It‘s very nice to win in this atmosphere."
