The guests took control from the first minutes by winning first half. But TBB Trier won third quarter 18-14. However it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. Strangely TBB Trier outrebounded Artland Dragons 35-23 including 23 on the defensive glass. Serbian center Petar Popovic (211-79) orchestrated the victory by scoring 15 points. American guard Marquez Haynes (191-86, college: Texas Arlington) contributed with 17 points for the winners.
