The Take

Already-qualified FC Bayern Munich (4-1) visits previously-eliminated ratiopharm ulm (0-5) with a chance to finish first. Bayern will be first if it wins or if it loses and Banvit Bandirma (3-2) tops Dominion Bilbao Basket (3-2). If Bayern loses and Bilbao wins, it will go which of those two teams has the higher point difference in the group after they exchanged two-point wins in their two head-to-head Last 32 battles. The game in Bandirma is a do-or-die battle, as only the winner will advance. Banvit is second if it wins, third if it loses. Bilbao is at least second with a win, but could be first if Bayern loses and the combined difference in those two games is 5 points or more.

Quotes Head Coaches

LEIBENATH, THORSTEN
ratiopharm Ulm
"Our strong defense was the foundation for the win on Sunday; offensively, we moved the ball very well. We want to repeat this type of performance on Wednesday. We don’t consider this game as a friendly game; we want to challenge Bayern once again. For sure, no one on our team will play 35 minutes. But even with some guys playing less minutes, we have a chance, I think. Munich will consider this game as a Playoff type of game, especially after the loss on Sunday. For us, this game was fun and the atmosphere was great. So we are really looking forward to Wednesday."
PESIC, SVETISLAV
FC Bayern Munich
"We have done a profound analysis of our Bundesliga game against Ulm last Sunday and we detected many surprising things. However the upcoming matchup takes place in a totally different competition and we will see a totally different ball game."

Players

GAVEL, ANTON
FC Bayern Munich
"We have to adjust to a completely different gampeplay in comparison to our last Bundesliga game. We certainly do want finish first in our group. However this game can be very risky for us, although Ulm is not qualified for the next round. They will start their last game in the Eurocup free from any worry."

Butler, Babb lead Ulm to home win over Bayern

In an all-German showdown in Group G, ratiopharm Ulm left the 2015-16 Eurocup in style by downing FC Bayern Munich 74-65 at home on Wednesday. Ulm was already eliminated and Bayern was mathematically first in Group G once Banvit Bandirma defeated Dominion Bilbao Basket earlier on. Bayern will now face archrivals ALBA Berlin in the Eurocup eighthfinals. De'Sean Butler led the winners with 15 points. Chris Babb added 13, Carlon Brown had 11 while Pierria Henry dished 8 assists for Ulm. Anton Gavel led Bayern with 17 points. Maxi Kleber added 13 while Deon Thompson had 10 for the guests. Ulm opened the game with a 10-3 run, extended its margin to 24-7 after 10 minutes and then again to 44-26 at halftime. Nothing really changed after the break, as Ulm cruised to a well-deserved win, its last one in this year's Eurocup.

Babb got Ulm going with a triple and David Brembly soon gave the hosts a 5-0 lead. Gavel struck from downtown but Butler and Babb boosted Ulm's margin to 10-3. Justin Cobbs scored off a steal but a three-pointer by Henry made Bayern call timeout at 13-5. Brembly scored again and a big triple by Butler broke the game open, 18-5. John Bryant tried to change things for Bayern but three-pointers by a red hot Babb and Brown gave Ulm a 24-7 lead after 10 minutes. Philipp Neumann found his first points early in the second quarter and a put-back basket by Brown boosted the hosts' lead to 28-7. Gavel hit his second triple and Thompson brought Bayern a bit closer, 28-12. Augustine Rubit joined Ulm's three-point shootout and Brown scored again for a 33-12 score. Alex Renfroe stepped up with a put-back basket and Kleber brought Bayern within 36-19. Babb scored again and Henry added free throws but Kleber kept pacing Bayern with a three-point play. Raymar Morgan and David Kraemer allowed Ulm to get a 44-26 margin at halftime.

Kleber struck from downtown immediately after the break and Renfroe kept Bayern within 46-31. Butler stepped up for Ulm but Gavel nailed a triple for a 48-34 score. Ulm improved its defense while Brown and Butler kept their team way ahead, 52-34. Thompson and Paul Zipser stepped up with consecutive baskets but an unstoppable Butler answered with 5 quick points for a 55-36 Ulm lead. Zipser scored again and Gavel followed a basket with free throws to bring Bayern witghin 57-42. Neumann and Gavel exchanged foul shots and a buzzer-beating basket by Cobbs made it a 13-point game, 59-46, after 30 minutes. Gavel scored again early in the fourth quarter and free throws by Zipser brought Bayern within single digits, 59-50. Per Guenther rescued Ulm with a three-pointer and Babb also struck from downtown to stop Bayern's comeback, 65-50, with 6 minutes left. Thompson and Bryant kept trying to change things for Bayern but the guests only managed to exchanged baskets for a while. Brembly and Joschka Ferner helped Ulm seal the outcome, 73-54, long before the final buzzer.

Head Coaches

LEIBENATH, THORSTEN
ratiopharm Ulm
"It was important for us to start the game with the right attitude. We moved the ball and shot the ball with self-confidence. Additionally, we once again had a great defensive effort. At the end, we played more sloppily because we had many different lineups that haven’t played together yet. But most importantly, we spread the minutes well."
PESIC, SVETISLAV
FC Bayern Munich
"Every game is an important one and every team wants to win. Ulm deserves the win today. They played with additional self-confidence after their win on Sunday. For us, the game was a good possibility to try different things. Right now, we're not in the best physical situation and we definitely need to get in a better condition to be able to play our style of basketball."

Players

BROWN, CARLON
ratiopharm Ulm
"It was a tricky game. We knew that we couldn't advance and Bayern already advanced. In such games, you need to be professional and focused no matter what. At the end, we got a bit sloppy, but all in all it was a good win for our team and for our fans who came out to support us."
GAVEL, ANTON
FC Bayern Munich
"We wanted to take something out of the loss versus Ulm on Sunday but our first half today was just bad. We wanted to win this game but we allowed every penetration so Ulm was able to get a lot of easy points."
