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

FISCHER, MATHIAS
Telekom Baskets Bonn
"Our main task is to make sure every player gets the right amount of rest as we played a tough game against Bremerhaven Sunday night. Facing a strong and packed Bilbao squad we need fresh legs and have to be mentally ready right from the get-go. For us rebounding the ball and taking away easy points in transition are the top priorities. We understand that Bilbao is eager to win their first Eurocup game after last week’s loss to Nanterre. On the other hand we want to defend our home court and improve as a team."

Players

SILAS, XAVIER
Telekom Baskets Bonn
"For us Sunday’s game against Bremerhaven was a good learning experience, because it was a gritty 40 minutes fight that we had to overcome collectively. Whether it’s on the national or international level, we know now how to deal with these kind of situations. Our mindset is to stick together, execute our gameplan and try to dictate the tempo against Bilbao."

Dominion Bilbao Basket beats Bonn for its first win

Dominion Bilbao Basket started strong and held on the rest of the way en route to an 81-90 victory over Telekom Baskets Bonn on Tuesday. The result left the two sides even at 1-1 in Group A. Dominion took the lead for good with a 0-13 first-quarter run and led 15-31 after 10 minutes and by as many as 22 in the second quarter. Bonn never quit and slowly clawed its way back in the second half until it got within 3, but Dominion used a well-timed 0-6 push to fend off the Bonn challenge. Dairis Bertans paced the Dominion attack with 15 points, Dejan Todorovic added 14, Alex Mumbru and Alex Rouff scored 12 each and Clevin Hannah had 11. Shawn James anchored the Dominion defense with 9 points, 8 rebounds and 3 blocks. Aaron White led Bonn with 15 points, Jimmy McKinney added 14, Florian Koch and Isaiah Philmore scored 11 each and Eugene Lawrence dished 10 assists.

Nearly 90 seconds passed before Dirk Madrich split free throws to start the scoring. Rouff got Dominion on the scoreboard with a three-point play. Koch’s basket-plus-foul and a Lawrence triple made it 7-3 in Bonn’s favor. Triples by Madrich and Lawrence kept the hosts ahead 13-10 midway through the opening quarter. Todorovic scored twice in a 0-13 Dominion run that turned the game on its head. Even after a pair of White free throws, Todorovic scored the next 5 points to give the visitors a 15-31 lead after 10 minutes. James’s tip-in and a Hannah triple gave Dominion a 21-point cushion. The lead peaked at 18-40 after Bertans free throws. Philmore heated up for Bonn to narrow the gap and Koch nailed a three to make it 31-45. Another James tip-in kept Dominion comfortable, but Xavier Silas drew the hosts within 33-49 at halftime.

Koch sank a three to open the second half and later McKinney did the same to get the hosts within 43-52. Hannah and Lawrence traded threes, but Dominion remained in control as Todorovic and Hasnnah established a 48-63 lead. White’s tip-in ended the third quarter at 55-66. The visitors scored the first 5 points of the fourth quarter to take a 16-point lead on a Tobias Borg three-pointer. Philmore sank 4 free throws and Rotnei Clarke hit a three to keep Bonn in the picture. It was 68-74 after threes by Madrich and McKinney. McKinney soon added 3 free throws to make it a 3-point game. However consecutive baskets by Bertans, Raul Lopez and Axel Hervelle put Dominion back in the driver’s seat at 73-82. White game Bonn hope with a put-back to bring his team within 78-84 with a minute and a half to go, but a Rouff triple all but iced the win for Dominion.

Head Coaches

FISCHER, MATHIAS
Telekom Baskets Bonn
"For almost the entire first half our readiness was missing. After halftime our intensity got better, which led to us being able to come as close as 3 points. Bilbao showed great poise and character by punishing every single mistake we made, displayed great reads and timing in crunch time."
ALONSO, SITO
Dominion Bilbao Basket
"This was a very difficult game for us after last week’s loss to Nanterre and our ACB game on Sunday. My team found a way to start wonderfully this contest, which paved the way for us. Bonn never gave up and came back with a strong effort, although Raul Lopez made great decisions down the stretch to secure the victory."

Players

PHILMORE, ISAIAH
Telekom Baskets Bonn
"We had to invest a lot of energy into our comeback in the second half. We can’t allow ourselves to be put in a hole like that after 20 minutes. Bilbao taught us a valuable lesson that you have to bring you’re ‘A’ game for a full game, not just one half."
RUOFF, ALEX
Dominion Bilbao Basket
"It was a great fight by two deep teams. We definitely needed this one. Having played Bonn before with Goettingen, I knew this was going to be a tough test for us. We were able to make great plays at the end, which was good for our confidence as we realized we can finish strong under pressure."
