Brose Bamberg suffered an 89:103 defeat at Hapoel Bank Yahav Jerusalem on the 13th gameday of the Basketball Champions League and will finish Group C in third place. Once again it was a catastrophic second quarter (16:34), which Brose left behind with 19 points at the break: 33:52. If the Bamberg players could still convert a high deficit in the last three games into a victory, this time they did not succeed. Although the visitors managed to reach eight points again (83:91, 36.), Jerusalem was the deserved winner in the end. Topscorer was Augustine Rubit with 16 points.
Federico Perego: "Congratulations to Jerusalem. They played very well and deserved to win. We had planned to come from a good defense to stop them. We didn't manage that. In the first quarter they didn't hit many free shots, which diluted the result a bit. But three minutes in the second quarter were enough to let us fall back into old patterns. We mentioned that once again in the half time break, but this time the gap was just too big, so we came back, but we couldn't get past."
