Dziugas Slavinskas opened the second half with a three-pointer to re-establish a 10-point lead 38-48. Tchouaffe came back down at the other end with 3 free throws and Fevrier followed with 3 baskets as INSEP was down just 47-48. Uleckas stopped the surge with a three-pointer but Saar evened the game at 51-51 and INSEP took its first lead on a big breakaway dunk from Hoard to make it 53-51. Uleckas answered with another three-ball and he hit from long range again to give Zalgiris a 56-57 cushion after 30 minutes. Masiulis’s free throws opened the final frame for a 56-59 lead before Hoard and Fevrier scored to put the French side up 62-61. Beyhurst knocked down a triple to make it 65-63 and he scored for a 67-65 lead.

After Velicka split 2 free throws with 1:11 left to make it 71-70, Sarr tipped in a miss for a 3-point lead. Sargiunas knotted the game with a three-ball from the right corner with 47 seconds to play. And Beyhurst’s jumper at the buzzer was off target, sending the game to overtime.
