The Take

Aris Thessaloniki (2-1) welcomes Steaua CSM Eximbank Bucharest (1-2) on its first trip to Greece since 1967. Aris has the Eurocup's best defense, which allows just 68 points per game, while newcomer Steaua scores just 69.3 points, the second-lowest average in the competition. In an all-Turkish showdown, Trabzonspor Medical Park (2-1) hosts Banvit Bandirma (1-2). These two sides already played this season in the Turkish League, with Banvit winning comfortably at home 88-69. Now they meet in Trabzon, where the host team is undefeated in the Eurocup. Banvit leads the competition with 16.7 offensive rebounds per game. Hoping to snap its two-game losing streak, Buducnost VOLI Podgorica (1-2) hosts Unics Kazan (2-1). The Montenegrin champion has won only one of its last 10 games against Russian teams, while Unics has won five of six Eurocup road games dating back to last season.

Quotes Head Coaches

JOVOVIC, IGOR
Buducnost VOLI Podgorica
"We are concerned because the virus that got Sehovic about five days ago now is onto Subotic and a couple more players have also complained about the same symptoms. I hope that most of the team will be safe from that, because it could be very dangerous for us. All positions in Unics Kazan are well-covered by great players. They could be able to be in top Euroleague spots even, so actually they are the clear favorites. However, favorites not always win, and I hope we can give them a big surprise."
PASHUTIN, EVGENY
Unics Kazan
"Buducnost plays very well at home. They have a number of individually strong players, like Maric, Cook, Dragicevic and Sehovic. The team attacks wells in the perimeter, and there are some good players, who can shoot well out of the arc. Buducnost is a fast team, they play tough, they are an experienced team, and our task will be to stop their forwards and centers, get ready to tackle their tense defense and play as a team."

Players

JOSEPH, DEVOE
Buducnost VOLI Podgorica
"We have a good tough game against Unics coming up tomorrow, and I think it will be a good chance to protect our home court. We are very good team at home and we got to go show our defense and proudness and play good game. They have obviously a lot of good players, and good history as team, and we just need to go out and compete."
BANIC, MARKO
Unics Kazan
"We will play the best Montenegro team. Buducnost improves on the level they play almost every single year. Fans always support their home team actively, this is why it might be not that easy to play them on the road. They have got some new good players in their roster. They have a strong playmaker Omar Cook. He is very experienced, one of the team’s leaders. He knows how to play basketball. Another player we should keep an eye on will be Aleks Maric. I have no doubts, we will have a difficult game on the road, but we will do our best to win."

Buducnost uses great defense to down Unics

Buducnost VOLI Podgorica survived a tough test in Group D by edging Unics Kazan 73-63 in the Montenegrin capital on Wednesday. Both teams are now tied in Group D, each with a 2-2 record, one win away from Aris Thessaloniki and Trabzonspor Medical Park, first at 3-1 apiece. Suad Sehovic led the winners with 16 points. Tadija Dragicevic added 13 while Aleks Maric had 10 for Buducnost. Keith Langford led Unics with 20 points. Latavious Williams added 11 while Artsiom Parakhouski had 10 for the guests, who used a strong start to keep a 15-19 lead late in the first quarter. Maric and Nemanja Jamaraz combined for 9 points in an 11-0 run which boosted the hosts' lead to 28-20. Unics managed to tie the game for the last time behind an unstoppable Parakhouski but Buducnost claimed a 37-32 edge at halftime and extended it to 60-50 after 30 minutes. Nothing changed from that moment, as Buducnost kept the lead throughout the fourth quarter and cruised to a well-deserved win.

Parakhouski got Unics going with a put-back layup which Langford followed with a turnaround jumper for a 2-4 lead. Valeri Likhodey found his first points, Maric scored in the paint but a three-pointer by Kostas Kaimakoglou and a six-meter jumper by Langford made Buducnost call timeout at 4-11. Dragicevic rescued the hosts with a triple which Maric followed with a layup for a 9-11 score. Langford nailed a three-pointer and Kaimakoglou erased Suad Sehovic's layup with a six-meter jumper. Latavious Williams and Maric exchanged layups, Quino Colom split free throws and a layup by Sead Sehovic kept Buducnost within 15-19. Dragicevic buried a corner jumper and Robert Rikic added a layup to keep Buducnost within 19-20 after 10 minutes. Buducnost held Unics scoreless for almost 5 minutes, while Maric and Jamaraz combined for 9 points to boost the hosts' lead to 28-20, after an 11-0 run. Parakhouski had 6 points in a 0-8 Unics run which tied the game again, 28-28, but Suad Sehovic, Rikic and Dragicevic stepped up to restore a 34-30 Buducnost lead. Free throws by Dragicevic, Langford and Rikic fixed the halftime score at 37-32.

Langford scored again right after the break and a three-pointer by Devoe Joseph gave the hosts a 40-34 margin. Parakhouski and Langford kept pacing Unics but another triple by Suad Sehovic gave his team a 43-38 margin. Williams and Kaimakoglou brought Unics within 43-42 but Suad Sehovic insisted from downtown. Williams hit free throws but the Sehovic brothers had 5 points in a 7-0 run that boosted Buducnost's margin to 53-44. Langford hit foul shots but a three-pointer by Vasilije Bacovic made it a double-digit game, 56-46. Williams scored again and Petr Gubanov hit free throws but Rikic and Joseph gave the hosts a 60-50 margin after 30 minutes. An outstanding slam by Williams made the hosts call timeout, 60-54, early in the fourth quarter. Arturas Milaknis and Suad Sehovic exchanged three-pointers and a layup by Likhodey gave Unics hope at 63-59. Bojan Subotic scored down low and free throws by Dragicevic gave Buducnost a 67-59 margin. Langford hit a jumper but he didn't find much help around. Meanwhile, another layup by Dragicevic sealed the outcome, 69-61, as Unics never recovered.

Head Coaches

JOVOVIC, IGOR
Buducnost VOLI Podgorica
"It is clear that this is a big win. Secretly we hoped that we could make a big surprise. At the start we were impressed with their quality and they had priority. Behind firmness on defense, we built a patient attack. We managed to control a big opponent, which is very important. My guys deserve nothing but praise. We change three or four players guarding Langford and it brought results. Their other players did not make a real impact."
PASHUTIN, EVGENY
Unics Kazan
"I expected a tough game. We had a good start, but we stopped defending the right way. I understand that we allowed Buducnost VOLI to find the rhythm. In the second half we just followed them. We played better, but it was not enough. Simply, we have to play tighter, more aggressive, just like Buducnost VOLI."

Players

SEHOVIC, SUAD
Buducnost VOLI Podgorica
"Wins against Unics and Banvit are great things, and for bigger teams than us. Defense and a cool head helped us in the end. Now, it is essential to remain firmly on the ground to continue the good run in the [Adriatic] league, too. This has to be the encouragement for the rest of the season."
