Sweet defeat: Brose Bamberg in Final Four

Despite a 67:69 defeat at AEK Athens, Brose Bamberg is in the final four of the Basketball Champions League thanks to their four-point first leg victory. The reigning cup winner in the witch's cauldron OAKA kept his nerve in front of almost 15.000 spectators in the last quarter and made up for a partial twelve-point deficit (51:63, 34.). Three Bryce Taylor's threes in the decisive phase and an excellent Tyrese Rice, who scored 5.5 seconds before the end the decisive basket to the 67:69 final score, were decisive for this. Rice (25) and Taylor (11) were also Broses top scorers. Augustine Rubit collected ten rebounds, Rice and Zisis each gave five assists.

Federico Perego: "The congratulations belong to my team, my staff, the physios, the team manager, the media director, everyone who is around the team every day and who does a great job. It wasn't easy to survive here. The OAKA is one of the loudest arenas in the world with enthusiastic fans. We managed to keep a cool head and make the right decisions even in difficult moments. Again: Congratulations to the team. They deserve to be in the Final Four!"
