JDA Dijon was not competitive facing Unicaja on the road but Robin Ducote sure was in an individual effort to finish the third quarter of the Basketball Champions League Regular Season Gameday 2 affair.

Ducote, 21, was moving toward the stands while banking in the off-balance seemingly impossible buzzer-beating three-pointer. It was too little too late for La Jeanne in Malaga but enough for the young French guard to take first place in the Top 5 Plays of the Week, shared by BCL Thursday. Carrying the experience of 17 games played in the Champions League as a member of Dijon, he debuted in the 2022-23 season scoring eight points.

Latvian Mareks Mejeris putting defensive specialist Yorman Polas Bartolo on a poster ranked second. It was a special dunk and part of his game-high 19-point effort but Hapoel Bank Yahav Jerusalem surrendered to MHP Riesen Ludwigsburg at home and dropped to 1-1 in Group E.

Chris Babb scored 20 points, including a clutch three-pointer sealing the deal for Bnei Ofek Dist Herzliya against Rytas Vilnius. The step-back triple additionally earned him the third spot in the Top 5.

For Darussafaka, Dogus Ozdemiroglu connecting with Gabriel Olaseni ranked fourth. The British center ended up with 20 points, 12 rebounds, and seven assists in the win over the Bakken Bears in Group E.

Another big-time dunk in fifth place with PAOK mateco’s Nate Renfro flying around in the PAOK Sports Arena, in the process helping the home side beat Dinamo Banco di Sardegna Sassari.
