Igokea recovered after letting a 12-point cushion go to defeat Limoges CSP, 76-73, at the Laktasi Sports Hall Tuesday.

Edin Atic made the deciding bucket in a fast break with 28 seconds left and assisted Jackie Carmichael for a three-point lead with one second to go. The 23-year-old swingman finished the Basketball Champions League Gameday 10 contest with 14 points.

Carmichael registered 18 points. Nicolas Lang shared the game-high 18 points but for the losing side of the Group G game.

The French club via improved defense in the second half stormed back from a 12-point deficit and gained a five-point lead with four minutes to go, but did not get the job done.

The Bosnian club up 3-2 will complete the Regular Season on the road against Turk Telekom searching for a path to the next round. The visitors dropping to 1-4 eliminated them from the playoffs.
