Ultra clutch through money time and overtime, Bryce Jones managed an already legendary buzzer beater in Ludwisbourg to give victory to Limoges CSP (94-96, ap) and send his men to the last 16 of the Champions League (BCL). However, the Limougeauds tallied up to 22 points after.
After a 20-point loss to Riga (71-51) at the end of October, the Limougeauds had partly given up a good part of their European hopes in Latvia. Last in their Champions League group (BCL) after three losses in as many days and especially no better in the Betclic ELITE, Massimo Cancellieri and his men did not have the profile of a candidate for the round of 16. This Wednesday night in Germany, Bryce Jones and his team mates pulled out all the stops to upset the hearts of Limougeaud. After a more than complicated first half (up to -22), Limoges was able to turn the tide to grab the extension, before Bryce Jones, author of countless decisive actions, allowed the Limougeauds to celebrate a final basket at the buzzer (94-96).

However, the task was not easy for Limoges. In the middle of the second quarter, CSP was led by 22 units (50-28, 15′) and saw the qualification fly away under a rain of 3-point baskets from the Germans. In the end, with a few defensive adjustments, the Limougeauds rose and once again made their incredible collective speech to get out of a very bad trap. Carried by Bryce Jones (26 points on 9/14 shooting, 9 assists, 3 stray balls and 2 blocks for 29 evaluation in 34 minutes), Jayvon Graves (24 points on 7/11, 5 rebounds, 1 assist and 3 interceptions for 26 evaluation in 37 minutes) and Mathieu Wojciechowski (15 points at 4/5 and 5 rebounds for 19 evaluation in 31 minutes), CSP even closed a 6-point deficit in overtime for s offers an anthology success. A mark of character that sums up this Limoges team well and still promises to offer big sensations in the European Cup in the company of Dijon and Strasbourg in the round of 16 of the Champions League (BCL).
In the last 16, Limoges will be in the pool of Galatasaray, Malaga and AEK Athens and will be on deck again next Tuesday in Istanbul, Turkey on the Galatasaray floor (6pm).
