The Take

On Tuesday, EWE Baskets Oldenburg (0-2) plays it first home game of the season, welcoming Dominion Bilbao Basket (1-1). Oldenburg has a 5-5 record on its home floor over the past two seasons. One of those victories wins came against Bilbao in 2013-14, when the teams split regular season home wins. Oldenburg must beware of a Bilbao defense that forces a league-high 20 turnovers per game so far. In two games on Wednesday, Union Olimpija Telekom (1-1) hosts Telekom Baskets Bonn (1-1) in the first meeting ever between those two sides. Bonn is winless in four meetings against Slovenian teams this century, and Olimpija hopes to extend that streak. Dolomiti Energia Trento (1-1) plays host to the group leader JSF Nanterre (2-0) in another first encounter. Trento registered its first Eurocup win ever one week ago, and now aims to protect its home floor again.

Quotes Head Coaches

DRIJENCIC, MLADEN
EWE Baskets Oldenburg
"Bilbao is a strong team with a lot of experience. Their win in Bonn shows the quality they possess. After the last win in the Spanish League, they will start with confidence. We have to play with a lot of intensity, but still smart. We lost the first two games on the road and want to win the first in our arena."
ALONSO, SITO
Dominion Bilbao Basket
"It is a difficult game because they need to win. They know the importance of the game after having lost the first two. They will come out very focused on the game, it is never easy win away from home in Eurocup. Oldenburg charges much the offensive rebound, with sharpshooters on the outside, but certainly we will depend on our activity and competition in every minute and play."

Players

QVALE, BRIAN
EWE Baskets Oldenburg
"We have been playing four road games in a row, so we are happy to be home in our arena, in front of our own fans. The first thing you have to do in European competition is to win at home. Bilbao will be a tough opponent, but as we want to improve our situation in the group, we have to take a victory out of the game."
HANNAH, CLEVIN
Dominion Bilbao Basket
"Oldenburg is a great team, with a great history. All German teams are physically good, strong and tough. We have to be physically and mentally tough as well."

"It is difficult for me to describe what happened tonight. We had a very different game plan, but Bilbao destroyed our ambitions early. Bilbao made too many right decisions. We didn´t find any answers. So we are very dissapointed. "
ALONSO, SITO
Dominion Bilbao Basket
"This was a good day for us. We saw Oldenburg play in Trento und knew they are a good team, so we were very focused on how we can beat them. We took good shots, so our confidence became better and better. "
JAMES, SHAWN
Dominion Bilbao Basket
"It was very important for us to win this game. We came very focused to Oldenburg and did a lot of good things here tonight. "
