BCL Regular Season Week 6 Recap: Bonn tries to run away, Gala shocks Hapoel Holon

By Eurohoops Team/ [email protected]

After the FIBA Window break, the 2022-23 Basketball Champions League Regular Season came back with some pretty good games in Week 6.

In Group A, both SIG Strasbourg and UCAM Murcia managed to get to the 3-1 record after beating respectively Tofas Bursa and Falco Szombathely. Luca Banchi came back to the BCL with an impressive win on the road thanks to Marcus Keene and Matt Mitchell, while James Anderson helped the Spanish side against the Hungarians.

TJ Shorts II is simply unstoppable and wrote history by becoming the only player in competition history to score at least 25 points in four consecutive games. His 27 points gave Bonn the win against Falco Szombathely and first place in Group B, where Reggio Emilia beat 74-70 Pinar Karsiyaka on Tuesday. “The Group of Death”, as Errick McCollum told Eurohoops, remains balanced.

In Group C, Galatasaray got an impressive 88-75 win against Hapoel Holon, the first defeat of the Israeli team in the 2022-23 Basketball Champions League. Dylan Ennis stepped up just like Ray McCallum in Legia Warszawa’s victory on the road against Filou Oostende.

Finally, another first loss in Group F as well, where BAXI Manresa got surprised by Aaron Broussard and Benfica. On Wednesday, Limoges CSP found its first victory of the Regular Season against VEF Riga.
