Basketball Champions League Regular Season Gameday 5 brought three teams to 3-0, including JDA Dijon. The French outlet was not letting the run go, forced overtime versus Tofas Bursa, and eventually logged the “W” in Turkey Wednesday. An extra period was again the case in La Jeanne launching the streak one month ago versus Keravnos.

AEK also jumped to 3-0 thanks to a narrow home win against Cholet Tuesday. A similar accomplishment for Dinamo Sassari with an away victory opposite to the Bakken Bears in the last bit of BCL action prior to the break for the fast-approaching FIBA window. The national teams will take center stage.

Spanish sides Iberostar Tenerife and Hereda San Pablo Burgos landed convincing wins versus Galatasaray and Happy Casa Brindisi, respectively. Both prevailed in early must-win situations.

Elsewhere, ERA Nymburk dominated winless Keravnos and Tsmoki-Minsk earned a key road win over Hapoel Holon.
