Brose Bamberg has won the first leg of the round of 16 of the Basketball Champions League with 81:79 against Banvit BK and thus created a good starting position for the second leg next week. Next Wednesday in Turkey, a victory or a defeat with a point difference would be the entry into the next round. The first game was a close affair for the entire 40 minutes, which Brose Bamberg won in the end due to the experience of many tight games. Four Bamberg players scored double digits: Rice (20), Harris (19), Rubit (14), Hickman (12).
Federico Perego: "It was the expected difficult game. Our problem was that we gave them far too many second chances, which they then exploited mercilessly. In the first half alone, they scored 15 points because we had worked badly on the rebound. But all in all, I'm happy with the way we handled the situation."
