Eight games stretched through Europe painted the picture in the Basketball Champions League Regular Season Round 2. Exciting contests and also some convincing displays across the board.

Group A features a couple of undefeated teams after two rounds. Lenovo Tenerife, 2017 champion, rolled Dinamo Banco di Sardegna Sassari, while Justin Simon rocked an 18-point, 12-rebound double-double for MHP Riesen Ludwigsburg in the comfortable win over Prometey.

The SIG Strasbourg triumph on the road against Filou Oostende marked the latest Monday “Game of the Week” and loaded a 2-0 record for the French club. Kalev/Cramo took down Tofas Bursa in the other Group F fixture.

Pinar Karsiyaka edged Arged BM Star Ostrow Wielkopolski going to 2-0 in Group B. Baxi Manresa also climbed to 2-0 with a win on the road over Hapoel Bank Yahav Jerusalem.

Besides Karsiyaka, fellow Turkish side Galatasaray Nef doubled up with an away win opposite Igokea powered by DeVaughn Akoon-Purcell’s 31 points. Jerrick Harding’s buzzer-beater lifted ERA Nymburk past PAOK mateco.

Group C, D, G, and H will complete Round 2 next week with multiple additional opportunities for the 2-0 start.
