In the second round of the Top-16 of the European Cup UNICS Kazan defeated in the most persistent struggle "Limoges" with a score of 69:66. The fate of the meeting was decided in the last seconds.

To get to Limoges in the south-west of France theteam had to make the  three flights on planes, and two more hours by bus, a half day was spent on the road!

Guests began the match in the usual starting five: Melvin Ejim, Quino Colom, Stephane Lasme, Jamar Smith and Trent Lockett. Just say that the long road, it was even more difficult than Kazan team had thought, immediately reflected on the actions of the guests. They obviously did not have enough freshness, the ball refused to fly to the target - two and a half minutes UNICS could not score a single point until it fell from behind the arc from the hands of Lockett, 4: 3. The French, however, played cheerfully and freely, they were at home, they did not have to go through Europe for the time being. The jerk of "Limoges" 7-0, 14: 5 on the scoreboard for 3-30 before the first break. But then successfully start to play Maurice Ndour, Anton Ponkrashov, Danilo Andjusic and Vladislav Trushkin. Ponkrashov scored from the ring with the first touch, Andjusic hook, 17:10, the result of the first quarter. Trouble with our three-pointers, one hit of 7! The shield is losing, the rebounds are 14-9, the turn-overs, 3-1.

Just unsuccessfully, the Kazan started the second quarter, 20:10 after the long-range hit of Axel Butel. And now the hosts are leading 14 points, 26:12. Very in time, the coaching staff of UNICS decided to abandon the zone defense and it gone better since now. The breakthrough of UNICS 10-0! On the scoreboard 26:22 after two consecutive three-pointers Smith. It's quite another matter. Exchange of the "threes" in the last minute of the first half, 32:27. 

 After the steal for 2-45 until the last break, Ejim for the first time in the match makes the score tie, 44:44. A Ndour`s slam dunk first takes UNICS Kazan forward, 45:46. The quarter ended with an equal score, 49:49. 

Decisive was the last quarter.  A couple of minutes, "Limoges" leads in the sdcore 54:52 after the "tricks" of Josh Carter. Then another three-pointer, 57:55. This was the last success of the French, whom, frankly speaking, the referees also helped. For a minute and a half before the end  Lasme makes the score 58:64, having issued a breakthrough UNICS 9-1.  The guests have problems with fre-throws because of fatigue, scoring less than half, 9 of 19! Also, Smith missed the ball very badly in 0-42. In a word, on the scoreboard 64:65, to play another 30 seconds, it's a lot.  Ponkrashov, in time scored the two, 64:67. Fell tactical fouls. Colom for 9 seconds before the end does not score two free-throws, rescues a colleague Lasme - selection, a throw from under the ring, 66:69. Victory! The second of two in the Top 16.

"Limoges" (Limoges, France) - UNICS (Kazan, Russia) - 66:69 (17:10, 15:17, 17:22, 17:20). The most effective: Limoges - Howard (14), Butele (11), Carter (10); UNICS - Lasme (13), Andjusic (12), Smith (11).
