The Take

Three first-time matchups in Group A start on Tuesday when Telekom Baskets Bonn (1-0) plays Dominion Bilbao Basket (0-1) in its second consecutive home game at the start of the season. In five games on German soil in the past seven years, Bilbao has 1-4 record, while Bonn has won 7 of 9 home games against Spanish teams since 1997. In two Wednesday games, JSF Nanterre (1-0) hosts Union Olimpija Ljubljana (1-0) with the winner assured of holding at least a share of the top spot in the standings. Olimpija was the highest scoring team last week with 98 points, and knocked down week-high 14 triples on 63% shooting as well. But Nanterre is full of confidence after a road win at Bilbao. Newcomer Dolomiti Energa Trento (0-1) plays its historic first Eurocup home game against EWE Basket Oldenburg (0-1). Both teams will try to avoid starting the season with consecutive defeats.

Quotes Head Coaches

BUSCAGLIA, MAURIZIO
Dolomiti Energia Trento
"We have the chance to get back to the court right after our defeat against Pistoia. We strongly wish to obtain the first European victory ever. We are gaining experience and every single lesson we learn will be crucial to get us closer to reach this goal. We hope, for our fans, that we will accomplish it on Wednesday."
DRIJENCIC, MLADEN
EWE Baskets Oldenburg
"We will have a tough game on Wednesday. Trento nearly scored 100 points in their first game, this shows their quality especially on offense. They will try to play fast basketball and we have to take that away from them."

BALDI ROSSI, FILIPPO
Dolomiti Energia Trento
"The defeat against Pistoia in the Italian League was not due to our European efforts. We don’t have excuses, we only want to get back to work in order to correct our mistakes, but keeping the good things we have showed so far. The match on Wednesday against EWE Baskets Oldenburg will be a tough one, but we are willing to achieve our first victory in Eurocup."
DUGGINS, VAUGHN
EWE Baskets Oldenburg
"It is never easy to win an away game in Eurocup. Trento is a good team, especially on offense. They play fast , small and got really good guards. But we want to avoid starting 0:2 and want to take a win home."

Trento stops Oldenburg's rally, gets first Eurocup win

Dolomiti Energia Trento recorded its first-ever Eurocup win by holding off EWE Baskets Oldenburg 80-69 at home in Group A on Wednesday. Trento improved to 1-1, joining a four-way tie for second place, while Oldenburg is sixth at 0-2. Davide Pascolo led the winners with 15 points. Julian Wright added 13, Filipo Baldo Rossi had 10 and 10 rebounds while Peppe Poeta dished 10 assists for Trento. Rickey Paulding led Oldenburg with 17 points. Brian Qvale added 14 while Chris Kramer had 11, 5 rebounds and 7 assists for the guests. Trento led 26-19 after 10 minutes and had an outstanding second quarter, in which Pascolo and Baldi Rossi allowed the hosts to get a 20-point margin, 52-32, at halftime. Qvale and an outstanding Paulding fueled Oldenburg's comeback, bringing the guests within 66-64 with 6 minutes left. Oldenburg ran out of energy, however, and a 7-0 run which Wright capped with a key basket sealed the outcome down the stretch.

Back-to-back triples by Jamarr Sanders and Pascolo gave Trento a 6-0 lead. Qvale stepped up with consecutive baskets but Sanders and Poeta kept the hosts in charge, 10-4. Qvale and Sanders traded baskets and Nemanja Aleksandrov kept Oldenburg within 14-8. Vaughn Duggins found his first points and Paulding struck from downtown but a red hot Pascolo kept Trento in charge, 18-13. Dominique Sutton and Robin Smeulders traded three-point plays and free throws by Diego Flaccadori made it an eight-point game, 24-16. Klemen Prepelic and Paulding brought Oldenburg a bit closer, 26-19, after 10 minutes. Sanders scored again early in the second quarter and Pascolo forced Oldenburg to call timeout at 30-19. Baldo Rossi hit a jumper which Qvale matched with foul shots. Andres Forray and Baldo Rossi led a 6-0 run which broke the game open, 38-21. Pascolo kept pacing Trento and got help from Baldo Rossi, Johan Lofberg and Wright to make it a 20-point game, 52-32, at halftime.

Oldenburg needed a quick comeback to return to the game and even when Aleksandrov and Paulding tried to ignite it, Wright and Pascolo kept Trento way ahead, 56-37. Paulding hit his second three-pointer in as many minutes and followed Prepelic's bomb from downtown with free throws to make Trento fans start to wonder at 56-45. Aleksandrov and Qvale brought the guests within single digits, 58-49. Sutton made free throws, an unstoppable Qvale scored again. Chris Kramer and Philipp Schwethelm, who had been scoreless until now, brought Oldenburg even closer, 64-56, after 30 minutes. Kramer and Wright traded baskets early in the fourth quarter and Paulding got Oldenburg within 66-60. Qvale made free throws and an unstoppable Paulding made it a two-point game, 66-64. Baldi Rossi took over with a three-point play and free throws by Wright gave Trento much-needed fresh air at 71-64. Wright scored again and Poeta scored off a steal to seal the outcome, 75-66, in the next-to-last minute. Oldenburg kept trying but Trento had cruised to a well-deserved, historical win.

"Winning today was fundamental for forgetting the past [Italian League] defeat, but also for our fans: we gave them our first victory in Europe, and we truly wanted to achieve this. We managed to win despite their comeback in the third quarter and this means a lot to us. We have to keep on improving, this is the right path."
DRIJENCIC, MLADEN
EWE Baskets Oldenburg
"Congratulations to Dolomiti Energia Trentino. We only played basketball for 20 minutes, at the end of the game. In games like this, you cannot do anything but lose. We lacked concentration in the paint, we did not manage to exploit the fact that Wright and Baldi Rossi had already committed many fouls. "
