THE STAKES

While both of these teams are already qualified, the result of this matchup could determine first place. Buducnost will gain the honor if it downs Alba by more than 18 points; otherwise, Alba will finish first.

THE TAKE

Alba is the second team overall in scoring (82 ppg), but Buducnost will need to push the game tempo to reach the big margin they need for first place. The key duel to watch is between guards Bojan Krstovic and Bryce Taylor. This is a game that pits Buducnost’s youthful enthusiasm against Alba’s superior experience.

Yassin Idbihi - Alba BerlinAlba Berlin finished the Eurocup regular season as Group H champ thanks to a new win, this time on the road at KK Buducnost Voli by 57-72 on Tuesday night. At the end of the first phase, Alba stands at the top with a 5-1 record while Buducnost, who had also qualified for the Last 16 before the game and needed a 19-point at least to finish first, dropped to 3-3 for second place. In the first half, runs for both sides kept the game rather close, but in the third quarter Alba pulled away for good. Yassin Idbihi led the winners with his 21 points and 7 boards, Marko Simonovic added 14, 12 of them in the first quarter, and Heiko Schaffartzik posted 10. For Buducnost, Aleksa Popovic and Vladimir Tica led the way with 12 points apiece while Cedomir Vitkovac nailed 11.

Having to work fast in order to gain a 19-point advantage, Buducnost started strong with a 4-0 to start, but Alba Berlin reacted fast. Vladimir Tica made it 8-4 for the hosts but things changed completely. A 0-10 run by Alba including 8 points by Marko Simonovic put the guests in command, 8-14. Simonovic soon scored his 10th point for the 10-16 entering the last minute of the first period. Four more free throws by Alba, including two more by Simonovic for 12 points in the quarter, closed the first period with a 10-20 Alba edge. The second period started with a 0-6 burst for the guests for 10-26 that made Buducnost's quest even more difficult. Alba was at 8 turnovers at this point, but the hosts' shooting, even from the free throw line, was not good enough to keep up. That was until Tica hit a layup that was a wake up call for Buducnost. It sparked a 16-2 impressive run capped by Aleksa Popovic's three that made it 26-28 entering the last two minutes of the quarter. A late reaction by Alba allowed them a 28-34 halftime break after Yassin Idbihi's basket.

After almost two minutes with no points in the second half, Tica hit a free throw to break the ice, and then Alba seemed to pick up quicker than Buducnost. Four straight points by Derrick Allen allowed the guests to stay ahead at 31-40. Cedomir Vitkovac joined in for the hosts to try to get back on track but Idbihi was also active now for Alba to maintain a safe distance. A new Idbihi basket plus a Simonovic slam allowed the guests to forge another double-digit lead and a Heiko Schaffartzik layup closed the third period at 46-59. A low scoring last quarter in which Alba even increased the lead a little bit in the first five minutes did nothing but seal the outcome of the game in favor of the German team, who wins the group and lands in Group L of the Last 16, while Buducnost will compete in Group K.

"Congratulations Alba for the victory, and congratulations to my players going into the second round. Alba showed again, they are the best team in our group, regardless of the circumstances tonight. We turn to the game with Union Olimpija in the Adriatic League, which has much greater significance for us than the game with Alba. I hope we will complete on Sunday evening, and in the best possible way to end the year. Thanks the audience that came to support us tonight."
HERBERT, GORDON

"First, I'd like to congratulate Buducnost for qualifying to the Last 16. They played well in Berlin with Vucevic, in Poland too, and they play very strong basketball. Buducnost players are big fighters. Tonight we started bad, but our bench was really good."
