The Take

Limoges will look to keep its Top 16 chances in good shape when it hosts Lokomotiv, which advances to the next stage if it wins. After a big win on opening night, Limoges has dropped four of five games, including its last two. However, Coach Milling's men are 2-1 at home. Lokomotiv has undergone some turmoil with the departure of Coach Obradovic, but defeated Arka Gdynia last week to remain tied for first place in the group.

Earlier this season

Lokomotiv cruised to an 82-64 victory over Limoges when the teams met in Round 2 in Russia. Lokomotiv scored 28 in the first quarter and led by 15 at halftime. Dmitry Kulagin scored 15 points and Moustapha Fall added 15 for the winners. Dwight Hardy led Limoges with 11.

Marquee matchup

Power forwards with great outside shooting, strong defensive abilities and toughness inside meet in this game. At age 25, William Howard (11.5 ppg., 45.8% 3FG, 3.7 rpg.) is enjoying his finest season yet for Limoges, while Dorell Wright (8.8 ppg., 46.4% 3FG, 3.7 rpg.) has stepped right into a complementary role in his first season with Lokomotiv. How their outside shots fall could be important since the need to stay on the perimeter on defense will take the other out of the defensive equation in the pant.

Keys to victory: Limoges

Ten different players have started for Limoges so far this season and the only payer who hasn't, Axel Bouteille (11.8 ppg.), is the regular sixth man and second on the team in scoring. Getting production from up and down the lineup will be very important for Limoges, especially against Lokomotiv's depth.

Keys to victory: Lokomotiv

Limoges is one of the few EuroCup teams that has the athleticism throughout its lineup to match Lokomotiv at every position. To counter that, Lokomotiv must pay extra attention to its rebounding to enable extra opportunities in transition.
