A three-pointer by Kostas Kaimakoglou and a jumper by Eidson gave Unics a 24-28 edge early in the second quarter. Adam Hrycaniuk and Dragicevic stepped up for Zielona Gora and a dunk by Eyenga tied it at 30-30. Kaimakoglou kept pacing Unics with free throws and an outstanding Vougioukas gave the guests a 35-38 edge. A 7-0 run that Przemyslaw Zamojski capped with a triple put Zielona Gora back ahead, 42-38. A put-back basket by Veremeenko fixed the halftime score at 42-40.

A layup by Vougioukas and a dunk by Eidson restored a 42-44 Unics lead right after the break. Koszarek and Goudelock traded jumper and a three-pointer by Dragicevic put Zielona Gora back ahead, 47-46. Eidson followed a triple with a slam but Zamojski kept the hosts within 50-51. Luke Harangody and Cel exchanged baskets and a layup by Eidson made it a five-point game, 52-57. Zielona Gora struggled to score late in the third quarter. Meanwhile, a three-pointer by Zisis and a jumper by McKee boosted Unics's lead to 54-62 after 30 minutes. The hosts improved their defense late in the third quarter. Meanwhile, a dunk-and-foul by Dragicevic and 4 unanswered points by Koszarek made it a one-point game, 63-64. Vougioukas sank a jumper that Koszarek bettered with a triple to tie the game, 66-66. Kaimakoglou answered from downtown but Eyenga and Cel completed the hosts' comeback, 70-69, with under 4 minutes to go. Goudelock took over with a three-point play and a triple. Dragicevic dunked again but Eidson gave Unics a 72-77 edge with 50 seconds remaining.

"Congratulations to Unics. It was a very tough game. My players put a lot of effort to this game, but not everything was so good. My guys did not play very well in defense and continued mistakes made earlier in the game. That was very bad. Sometimes those little mistakes decide a defeat. We lost against a very strong opponent and we accept it. Now we have to focus on the nearest game in Polish Tauron Basket League."

"It was a very good game. We had a couple of problems, especially in the first half. Sometimes we were dancing in defense. Stelmet could try alley-oops and three-point shots. It was very bad and we cannot allow such things on the court. We played much better in defense in the second half, we felt a chemistry in the team. We are happy to win on this hot ground."
