LoVett heroics earn Sporting CP epic win; Kangoeroes stun Cholet

MUNICH (Germany) - There was even more entertainment on Gameday 2 of the FIBA Europe Cup Regular Season with several game-winning highlights amongst Wednesday's action.

Marcus LoVett produced two insanely clutch three-pointers in less than 12 seconds to bring Sporting CP back in the final moments for a dramatic 99-98 win over Egis Kormend.

Elsewhere in Group G, there was another thriller as Karhu Basket secured an 
89-88 victory over Anwil Wloclawek via a very late layup from Daniel Dolenc. He scored 23 points on an efficient 10-of-11 shooting from the field, while the home side had 28 points including 6-of-8 three-point shooting from Phillip Greene in defeat.

Kangoeroes Basket enjoyed their own late action as Domien Loubry fired in a game-winning triple to finish with a 29-point haul in his side's 88-85 triumph over Cholet Basket. The visitors had 27 points from Perry Ellis as they saw a 10-point lead in the fourth quarter wiped out down the stretch.

The opening game of the day saw the visiting Brose Bamberg run away for a 
98-86 victory away at Hapoel Nofar Galil Eilon behind a 30-19 fourth quarter performance. For the second week in a row, Christian Sengfelder paced his team in scoring with a team-high 21 points.

"We picked up our defense in the second half and we didn’t turn the ball over that much. Then we got some open shots. All in all, especially our improvement in the defense in the second half was the game changer," said Sengfelder.

Gaziantep also remain unbeaten after their 82-63 success over Telenet Giants Antwerp; BC Balkan were 79-64 winners against Opava; Keravnos BC managed a solid 77-68 win over Patrioti Levice; SCMU Craiova cruised to a 73-60 road win over HAKRO Merlins Crailsheim and BC Kalev/Cramo took home a road win over BC Budivelnyk Kyiv, 83-74.

Also, CSM CSU Oradea had the biggest victory of the night at home over Rilski Sportist, 99-63. OCS Swans Gmunden were narrowly downed by Hapoel B-Cure Laser Haifa, who took home the road win 65-60. Happy Casa Brindisi took an easy win over Donar Groningen, 87-65. CSO Voluntari dispatched Norrkoping Dolphins at home, 75-60.
