For the first time in the four Basketball Champions League seasons, a team registered 11 blocks in a single game.

Defense wins games and that was the case for Mornar Bar against Brose Bamberg.  The Montenegrin team became the first to register 11 blocks in a single Basketball Champions League. In four more occasions during the four BCL seasons, a team had ten blocks in a single game.

Uros Lukovic (photo) came up with six of those blocks, a season-high for the BCL and he also had 12 points and 10 rebounds. According to the BCL site, Lukovic became only the second player in competition history to post a double-double and also get five or more blocks. The only one to have ever achieved this feat before was Sean Denison, in December 2016.
