Win improved EWE Baskets to 2-1 in a share of second place in Group B, while Cedevita dropped to 1-2. The visitors used a 0-17 run to finish the second, and start the third quarter, opening up 39-50 lead. But the hosts got hot from behind the arc, and rallied take 67-66 lead. Nolan Smith scored for Cedevita to make it 79-79, and send the game in the extra session, where the visitors had a 3-point lead in the final minute, but hosts got to the free throw line to regain the advantage and pull out a victory.

Behind the baskets from Bilan and Smith, Cedevita was the one with a lead after 10 minutes, 14-19. EWE Baskets had a much better offensive rhythm in the second quarter, as Wysocki, Jenkins and Dru Joyce all hit triples, but Zubcic and Smith made sure Cedevita did not fall behind. With Chris Kramer hitting from behind the arc, the hosts did go on to create a 6-point margin just before halftime, but Zubcic answered with a basket-plus-foul, then Ivo Baltic beat the halftime buzzer with a fastbreak basket for 39-38. After the break, Cedevita came out firing. Smith and Zubcic hit triples, Smith fed Bilan twice, and Babic capped the a 0-12 run for 39-50.

Jenkins hit another one from downtown, but Marino Bazdaric, Delas and Babic with a three-pointer got Cedevita back in front, 70-75. Another run from the hosts fueled by Kramer and Crosariol got them to 79-77, but Smith sent the game into overtime. In the extra session, a triple from Delas and basket from Smith put Cedevita in front 83-84, and with baskets from Zubcic and Ivan Ramljak the visitors held 87-90 with less than 45 second to go. But in the remaining time, Smeulders and Paulding each hit a pair from the free throw line for EWE Baskets to regain the lead, and the hosts survived after Smith committed a turnover on the final possession.

Head Coaches

MACHOWSKI, SEBASTIAN
EWE Baskets Oldenburg
" I am happy with the fact that we won today. The victory is crucial for our positioning in the group and it was important to get this win at home, since we lost badly against Sassari in our first home outing. Still we didn’t play consistent enough. There were times when we were dominant defensively and other times where we moved the ball very well. But we didn’t follow our game plan the whole time and allowed the opponent far too many easy points. It is good though to have the team show character and poise when it matters and to come back from behind in the fourth quarter. "
REPESA, JASMIN
Cedevita Zagreb
"We had two chances to win the game: We got the last shot in regulation and in overtime. We missed these chances. It is tough losing such a close game, when we just weren’t able to close the game out. We have a very young team, but if offered these chances, we have to take them, especially on the road."

Players

PAULDING, RICKEY
EWE Baskets Oldenburg
"It was a good win for us. It was a bit too close for our comfort, but we kept battling and kept our spirits up and that’s what brought us this win in the end. Zagreb was a good team, they hit some tough shots and we had our hands full getting back into the game."
SMITH, NOLAN
Cedevita Zagreb
"We made too many mistakes in crucial situations. The game was back and forth the whole time and both teams had chances to win it. It speaks for us that we were right up there with Oldenburg. But as a young team you have to make more of these chances on the road. We spent much energy and leave with nothing."
