Brose Bamberg made it exciting at JDA Dijon, but won the 9th matchday of the Basketball Champions League at the end after extra time with 101:97. The squad of Ainars Bagatskis were already leading with 15 points in the middle of the third quarter (60:45, 28.). At the end of the regular playing time, however, David Holston turned up the heat, scores three threes in the last minute, one of them with the buzzer and sends the game with 84:84 into extra time. Brose had the better nerves there. Topscorer was Ricky Hickman with 18 points.
Ainars Bagatskis: "We had the game under control for long stretches. In the end, however, we lost concentration in defense for reasons that could not be understood. Holston took advantage of that and hit a few very difficult shots. Nevertheless, I have to congratulate my team. The guys fought and fought until the end. Only wins count, so I'm very happy."
