Igokea looking for first win as UCAM need road success to chase Tortona 

On their longest-ever Basketball Champions League losing streak, Igokea m:tel need a success to move their win count for the season and keep their play-ins hopes alive.  UCAM Murcia dominated, nailing consecutive 25+ points win at home, but lost their only game in Piedmont to group leader Tortona.

While the Bosnians are at the bottom of Group H, currently winless at 0-3, Murcia still hold hopes of getting out of the group stages with a first-place finish. Currently 2-1, they will need to find consistency on the road, as well as beating Derthona Tortona at home.

Igokea m:tel will want to forget the blowout in Murcia as soon as possible, having been limited to 47 points (best-ever defensive performance for Murcia) in the reverse fixture at the end of October.  

Tanaskovic is the most on-form player for the Bosnians, having converted 15 points back-to-back in the Basketball Champions League. The talented power forward put up a 24-point performance in the ABA as well, with Igokea currently at the top of the ever-competitive Adriatic Basketball League over the likes of Red Star Belgrade and Partizan Belgrade. 

Murcia looking to keep pressure on Tortona 

UCAM Murcia is living a magic moment in the Liga ACB, where they are just two games behind league leaders Real Madrid, sharing a four-team tie with Unicaja, Valencia, and Barcelona. Sito Alonso’s team has not dropped a game in November, and a win in Bosnia would see them end the month on an impressive 7-0 record in all competitions. 

The Swedish duo of Birgander and Hakanson have made an instant impact for the Universitarios with 15.4 points and 11.5 respectively. The veteran Wildcat Dylan Ennis is contributing 15.1 points per game in what looks like a scary lineup for every opponent.
