By Johnny Askounis/ [email protected]

Big wins and plenty of impressive comebacks all over the fourth week of the Basketball Champions League Regular Season. Four groups (A, B, E, F) went through Round 3, while the remaining four (C, D, G, H) follow next week.

The Monday “Game of the Week” saw PAOK mateco come back from a 14-point deficit to put an end to the recent momentum built by Galatasaray Nef. ERA Nymburk beat Igokea to match Galata’s 2-1 and force its opponent to a 1-2 tie with PAOK.

MHP Riesen Ludwigsburg got the job done in the battle of Group A undefeated teams against Lenovo Tenerife. Also, Prometey returned from 16 points to defeat Dinamo Banco di Sardegna Sassari and place itself in a commanding position for at least the third seed.

The first team of the season upping its record to 3-0 was in Group B in the form of Baxi Manresa after the away win versus Pinar Karsiyaka. Elsewhere, Arged BM Stal Ostrow Wielkopolski beat Hapoel Bank Yahav Jerusalem adding to the comeback trend.

Both Tofas Bursa and Filou Oostende prevailed on the road in the Group F games. The Turkish side beat and caught SIG Strasbourg on top, while the overtime win for the Belgian side made out a tie for third with Kalev/Cramo.
