The Take

On Tuesday, Valencia Baskets (3-0) welcomes Umana Reyer Venice (2-1) in their first meeting ever. No team takes better care of the ball than Valencia, which makes only 8.7 turnovers per game. Venice, a newcomer in the competition, has not eclipsed 73 points yet, but nonetheless won its last two games. One team will come away with its first victory this season when SLUC Nancy (0-3) plays at home against Proximus Spirou Charleroi (0-3) on Wednesday. Only 300 kilometers separate cities of Nancy, France and Charleroi, Belgium. When they played this time last year, Nancy won both of their regular season clashes by at least 15 points. CAI Zaragoza (2-1) returns home after two weeks away to host ratiopharm Ulm (2-1) and break their part of a second-place tie. Despite struggling from the three-point arc with only 16 triples on 26.2% accuracy so far, a win would give CAI its best-ever Eurocup start. Ulm averages 84 points per contest behind Raymar Morgan, who ranks third in performance index rating at 27 per game.

Quotes Head Coaches

RECALCATI, CARLO
Umana Reyer Venice
"Valencia is the queen of Group C and it is demontrating because it has already won on the road twice. Moreover they have got a long roster enables them to distribute playing times. Valencia hasn't got a greatest rebounder but they work really well with the whole team. Besides that Valencia shares offensive responsabilities. Our defence it's going to be important, especially because we play on the road in the strogest team arena of Group C. We need to control the rhythm to start our defence with a balance and organized offense."

Players

GOSS, PHILLIP
Umana Reyer Venice
"It's an important game for us and for our Eurocup run in Group C. We know we are going to play in one of the toughest court and generally playing on the road in Eurocup is testing. Anyway it would be very important giving continuity to our home wins. Surely the key will be the right mentality that we need to face this game, the same that enabled us to win in Sassari against the Italian Champions. Overall we need to play unselfish basketball and face together tough moments in the game."

Valencia Basket dominates Umana Venice to remain unbeaten

Valencia Basket dominated Umana Reyer Venice 88-59 on Tuesday to remain undefeated in Group C. The hosts never trailed in becoming the first team in the competition to rack up four wins. Rafa Martinez made 4 of 6n threes and scored 16 points and Bojan Dubljevic netted 15 points for the winners. Justin Hamilton added 12, Vladimir Lucic 11 and Guillem Vives dished 9 assists for Valencia, for whom every player scored a basket. The real story for Valencia was its defense, which held Venice to just 27 second half points, which was what it scored in the fourth quarter alone. Philip Goss scored 14 and Jeff Viggiano 11 for Venice, which dropped to 2-2.

Little separated the sides early as Josh Owens brought Venice within 9-8 after four minutes. A Martinez triple and Hamilton jumper gave the hosts a 6-point lead. A second Martinez triple extended the lead to 7 and Valencia held off all Venice advances the rest of the quarter to finish it ahead 23-16. Goss opened the second quarter with a three as Venice closed the gap, but Valencia refused to let the visitors get closer than 4. A Sam Van Rossom triple keyed a 7-0 surge as Valencia took its first double-digit lead late in the half. Jarrius Jackson’s three-pointer made it 40-32 at halftime.

Luke Sikma starred in a 7-0 start to the second half, in which Martinez also tripled for a 15-point advantage. Goss drilled a three and Hrvoje Peric closed the deficit to 10, but Hamilton, Sikma and Dublejvic each hit free throws in an 8-0 spurt for a 59-41 cushion. Michele Ruzzier’s basket brought the visitors within 61-45 through three quarters. After Lucic’s basket-plus-foul, Jon Stefansson gave Valencia its first 20-point lead. The difference peaked at 88-57 in the next-to-last minute as Valencia cruised to another big win.

MARTINEZ, PEDRO
Valencia Basket
"Both teams had a good first half. Umana Reyer Venice played a very good game for the first 20 minutes, playing with rhythm and defending well. But we were also playing well and they were not able to endure our rhythm in the second half and we broke the game thanks to our defense and running. That is fantastic; it is one of our goals."
RECALCATI, CARLO
Umana Reyer Venice
“We played a good first half, with some mistakes, but we can be satisfied. In the second half we play badly, let them run and score easy baskets. We were not at the level of the first half. But we must congratulate Valencia, they played a great game and they have showed why they are the best team in Group C.”

Players

MARTINEZ, RAFA
Valencia Basket
“We knew they are a good team; in the first half they played good basketball. We were very strong for 40 minutes in this game. We played good defense and that allowed us to run and play with a higher rhythm, which they were not able to endure in the second half."
