Only one team is left in the top spot of Group A and one in Group B and they did it in style on the road. However, it was also a night to remember in London with Hapoel Tel Aviv getting an epic win.

Aleksander Dziewa had a solid game for the hosts with a double-double (23 p. 10 r.) but it was not enough.

Last but not least in Group A, Venezia registered a triumph against Ulm by 20 points (89-69) behind 19 points by Mitchell Wat and 17 by Derek Willis. Brazilian newcomer Bruno Caboclo scored 18 for Ulm.

Thanks to this result there’s a four-way tie between the second and the fifth spot in Group A between Joventut, Prometey, Bursaspor, and Venezia.

In the game that completed the 10th round, the London Lions almost spoiled the party of Hapoel Tel Aviv, which had more than 1.500 fans in London for the game. After a night to remember the guests got the 95-93 win with J’Covan Brown making the winning shot.

The Lions had one last chance with 12 seconds left, Jordan Taylor missed, Kostas Koufos got the offensive rebound, but couldn’t convert. Sam Dekker with 29 points did his best for the home side, while Taylor and Tomislav Zubcic had 19 points each.
