Morabanc Andorra put on a brilliant offensive performance to defeat Ratiopharm Ulm 99 – 87 in Germany and improve its EuroCup Group A record to 4-3. Ulm is sunk to 1-6 and sees its chances of making the next round getting decreased.

Clevin Hannah led Andorra in both scoring (20 points on 8/10 shots) and passing (8 assists). Dejan Todorovic and David Walker scored 17 points apiece while Frantz Massenat had 16 points.

NBA Draft prospect Killian Hayes registered a team-high 19 PIR after scoring 19 points (6/8 2-pointers, 2/6 3-pointers) and dishing out six assists in 30:25 for Ulm. He also committed five turnovers.

Isaiah Briscoe dropped 19 points and grabbed seven rebounds in his EuroCup debut. He and Ulm couldn’t stop Andorra from scoring, especially in the first half which the Spanish side dominated 39 – 54.

Ulm made a comeback attempt and Hayes put his team up 76 – 75 early in the fourth quarter. Yet Andorra answered with a 3 – 15 run to regain control of the game and get the win.
