Cibona Zagreb got its first win of the season by routing Le Mans Sarthe Basket 53-64. Andrija Zizic tallied 21 points with 7 rebounds to lead the winners, D.J. Strawberry added 13 points and 7 boards, while Dario Saric amassed 11 points, 8 boards, 3 assists and 2 blocks. Despite the win, Le Mans remains last in Group A at 1-5. Reyshawn Terry and Dashaun Wood both scored 19 points for Le Mans, which slipped to 3-3.

Cibona opened the night by scoring the first 14 points – 8 of them by big man Zizic. DeShaun Wood ended a nine-minute scoreless stretch for the home team from downtown before a layup by Saric fixed the score at 3-16 after 10 minutes. A Strawberry layup gave Cibona 6-20 lead and late in the quarter, a three pointer bagged by Antoine Eito made the score 18-25. Zizic’s free throws and Wood’s basket from beyond the arc left the score at 23-29 in favor of Cibona at halftime. The visitors came back from the lockers and went on a 0-7 run with 5 points from Strawberry to lead 23-36, but a dunk and three-pointer by Terry made it 30-38. A 14-3 run capped by back-to-back lay ups from Darko Planinic gave a 33-52 margin to Cibona at the end of the third quarter. Terry netted 7 consecutive points opening the final quarter to get within 40-52, but Matt Janning and Zizic fueled the guests to make it 40-56. Wood’s three pointer tried to keep alive Le Mans, 45-58, but a Strawberry layup and Zizic free throws sealed the visiting team’s win.

Head Coaches

JACKSON, JOHN-DAVID
Le Mans Sarthe Basket
"We had no rhythm or discipline to start the game. Cibona played with control and built their win with patience. We didn’t play together and ended up forcing solutions that were not there. Honestly this is our worst game so far in the Eurocup. Cibona deserves this win and ends a long and difficult period…I congratulate them."
RIMAC, SLAVEN
Cibona Zagreb
"For the club, we had a lot of pressure. It’s very important for the continuation. We know it’s difficult for us to go in the second round, but for the confidence, it’s very important. I’m happy with the team’s reaction, we played a good game."

Players

TERRY, REYSHAWN
Le Mans Sarthe Basket
"We have to change. Our started was very bad. We have to find a way to progress. The first half, like the last few games, we had to come back and we spent a lot of energy. We needed to impose our tempo."
BLASSINGAME, JEREL
Cibona Zagreb
"It’s our first victory in the Eurocup. We have some talent, our chemistry is better. We work hard and it pays. We knew that Le Mans is a good team, but we prepared very well."
