The Take

The teams at the bottom of the Group D table will try to catch a last chance at the Top 16 when Mornar hosts Fiat. Mornar has lost four straight games since beating Fiat for its only win of the season. Fiat is the lone winless team in the EuroCup. Defense has been the Achilles's heel for both teams with Mornar allowing the second-most points in the competition this season (92.2 ppg.) and Fiat the third-most (90 ppg.).

Earlier this season

Mornar captured its maiden EuroCup victory on the road 80-84 against Fiat after giving up a 15-point halftime lead. Uros Lukovic paced Mornar with 19 points, 13 rebounds and 2 blocks, while Strahinja Micovic scored 13 points. Tyshawn Taylor tallied 23 points and 7 assists to lead Fiat.

Marquee matchup

Mornar's Bronson Koenig (12.7 ppg.) and Fiat's Tony Carr (14.3 ppg.) are among their team's scoring leaders and most-exciting players. They are also old college opponents. Scorers first and assist-men second, they each make the offense go in their respective ways and could well end up guarding each other in a marquee matchup.

Keys to victory: Mornar

Mornar's top two performers this season have been its big guys, center Uros Lukovic (12.3 ppg., 8 rpg., 1.8 bpg.) and power forward Strahinja Micovic (10.2 ppg., 4.6 rpg.). Facing a banged-up Fiat frontline, which will likely be without James McAdoo, Mornar will need its big guys to control the paint to maximize its chances of winning.

Keys to victory: Fiat

Shorthanded Fiat must get the most from its fit players, including its second stringers. Point guard Giuseppe Poeta and center Marco Cusin are among those who will be counted on to shoulder the extra load and steer Fiat toward what would be its first win.

Head Coaches

BROWN, LARRY
Fiat Turin
"I'm always excited when we get to play, unfortunately we only have seven healthy players so it's going to be a big challenge. But it's going to be another challenge that hopefully we can get better. Mornar Bar beat us when we were healthy and at home and they added other good players, so we will need to give everything in court in order to win".

Players

PORTANNESE, MARCO
