The Take

Action in Group B starts Tuesday when Le Mans Sarthe Basket welcomes last year's runner-up Herbalife Gran Canaria Las Palmas. It is Le Mans's return to the competition after a rare season away, and a test for Gran Canaria as it hopes to duplicate last season's Eurocup run. Two Wednesday games in the group feature local derbies. MGP Riesen Ludwigsburg is back to the Eurocup after eight years as it hosts fellow German side ALBA Berlin. The last two seasons in the German League, these two teams have split home victories. In an all-Italian showdown, Grissin Bon Reggio Emilia hosts newcomer Enel Basket Brindisi. The two teams faced off as recently as the Italian League playoff quarterfinals in May, when Reggiana won the best-of-five series 3-2.

Reggio Emilia edges newcomer Brindisi in all-Italian clash

In an all-Italian clash of Group B, Grissin Bon Reggio Emilia rallied to edge Enel Brindisi Basket 82-79 in a highly entertaining clash. Rimantas Kaukenas paced the winners with 17 points, Pietro Aradori scored 14, Darjus Lavrinovic had 12, and Amadeo Della Valle 10. Achille Polonara chipped in with 8 points and 10 rebounds in victory. For the visitors, Djordje Gagic collected 13 points and 8 rebounds, while Kenneth Kadji and David Cournooh also scored 13 apiece. Scott Reynolds had 12 points, 7 assists and 6 rebounds, while Adrian Banks finished with 10 for Brindisi which opened the game with 9-19 lead and remained in front for the entire first half. Reggio Emilia briefly went in front at the start of the third quarter, but Brindisi replied and regained the lead. Cournooh’s triple made it 59-67 early in the fourth, but Lavrnovic sparked a 16-3 run during which he scored 8 points for 75-70 lead the host never relinquished.

Brindisi had a great start to the game, as Reynolds hit one, and Andrea Zerini two triples for 1-11 lead. Aradori got the hosts going, and Della Valle hit a triple, but Gagic scored six points to help Brindisi to 13-21 lead at the end of the first quarter. Della Valle hit another three, then had a fastbreak basket to cut the deficit to 20-23 in the second period, but a pair of baskets from Nemanja Milosevic, a put-back from Alex Harris, and a bucket from Reynolds made it 23-31. Kadji’s three-point play extended the lead back to 9 points, but in the final two minutes of the quarter Aradori and Stefano Gentile each hit a triple for Reggio Emilia that made it 37-39 at halftime.

A basket-plus-foul from Gentile and a bucket from Aradori gave the hosts 42-39, but Brindisi quickly regained the lead with a 0-9 run sparked by Kadji’s three-pointer. More baskets from Gagic and Banks opened 44-52 lead midway through the third, but a pair of triples from Kaukenas helped cut the gap to 57-60. The visitors took a 5-point lead into the fourth quarter, before a three-pointer from Cournooh made it 59-67. But Lavrinovic sparked things for the hosts, starting a run in which Ojars Silins hit a three-pointer and Polonara scored a three-point play on a fastbreak for 67-67. After another three from Cournooh, another basket from Kaukenas, and five more points from Lavrinovic made it 75-70. Kadji and Polonara traded baskets, and Kadji made 3 of 4 from the free throw line to cut it to 77-75 with 71 seconds to go. But Kaukenas nailed a triple on ensuing possession, before Andrea De Nicolao sealed it with two foul shots with 13 seconds remaining.

"It 'was a very tough game, we came from two victories and we faced a very difficult team that made big changes in the roster, but maintained continuity in the technical staff and this is important. It was very hard, but we reached a crucial victory that gives us great awareness. We know that the road is long, that’s why this win is important. I want to emphasize the extraordinary game of Rimantas[Kaukenas] and the attitude of Pietro Aradori, a great professional who considers the team to be the most important thing. Our goal was to bring home the result and we have achieved it, although we were not brilliant for all 40 minutes"
BUCCHI, PIERO
Enel Basket Brindisi
"Although the result is not positive, I’m satisfied with this game. In the Eurocup, with close games and the group so short, even the point differential counts. We played a good game even counting that last season we changed everything, and there are only [Andrea] Zerini and [David] Cournooh from the old team. We are inexperienced and we made too many mistakes. However, we have played a good game: we are working together for two months. I found the team read. The -3 especially comforts me."

"It was a difficult game, we lost our rhythm at the beginning, we were not very aggressive in defense and in attack. But it is normal because we are still learning to play together, to perfect patterns, understand the spaces, so we are not yet 100% sure about our potential .I am happy because we gave our soul and played aggressively and we found the rhythm, and this helped us even in defense. Brindisi is a very good team, I'm glad for [this victory] because it was not a foregone conclusion."
ZERINI, ANDREA
Enel Basket Brindisi
"I could not play all of the game because of a muscle problem; the doctor stopped me as a precaution. We know we have to work even harder, for many it is the first experience in Europe, but this is a stimulus, we want to be a star in this competition. We still need to work to get ready for the two games every week. I'm happy because I see the group as a complete team, we complete each other in the right way."
