Brose Bamberg was beaten 67:84 by the Lithuanian representative BC Lietkabelis Panevėžys on the 11th matchday of the Basketball Champions League. Brose only took the lead at the beginning (2:0), the rest of the match was played by the home side. Although Bamberg managed to reduce the 14-point gap to two at the beginning of the last quarter (58:60, 31.), in the end it was not enough. A rebound inferiority of 28:43 was one of the decisive factors. Topscorer of Brose was Elias Harris with 13 points.
Federico Perego: “Congratulations to Panevėžys. They fully deserved the victory. At the beginning we were told that we had not completely digested the small shock we had the day before yesterday. I take the defeat on my own two feet. I've been tough on the guys for the last two days. Maybe too hard. But that will help us in the future, I'm sure. Of course, we must not give up the rebounds with 28:43. We also got too many points from the fast break in the first half. But we came back, we fought back. But in the decisive situations we weren't 'one team' enough. Again: Congratulations to Panevėžys for a well deserved victory!"
