Earlier this season, in Round 3 of the 7DAYS EuroCup, Germani Brescia went on the road and beat ratiopharm Ulm 90-98, yet the two teams could only be separated after overtime. This Wednesday night, another thrilling contest between these sides could be in store, as Brescia plays host to Ulm at PalaLeonessa A2A.
Brescia enters this game in seventh place in Group A with a record of 5-6, while Ulm is in sixth position after going 6-5 through the first 11 rounds. What's more, they come into this matchup in contrasting moods, as Brescia lost 79-72 at Prometey Slobozhanske last week, whereas Ulm got back to winning ways at home to 7Bet-Lietkabelis Panevezys, 78-69. Brescia do, however, have the chance to make it three wins from three at PalaLeonessa with a victory over Ulm.
When looking at the first meeting between Brescia and Ulm this season, two of the main protagonists that day will not be present on Wednesday night. For Brescia, guard Troy Caupain had 17 points, 7 rebounds and 8 assists in 40 minutes on the floor against Ulm, but he suffered an injury in Round 4 and is expected to remain out until the end of March. On the other hand, Ulm's leading scorer against Brescia, Matthew Mobley with 23 points, is no longer on the German team's roster, as he joined French side Dijon in early January.
