The Take

AS Monaco beat Ulm in 7DAYS EuroCup Regular Season action last season. Ulm is having its worst start ever in the competition and needs to bounce back in one of the toughest places to play in the competition. Dee Bost (13.0 ppg.) has been Monaco's top scorer until now, followed by Anthony Clemmons (12.7 ppg.) and Eric Buckner (11.7 ppg.). Derek Willis (14.7 ppg.), Tyler Harvey (14 ppg.) and Zoran Dragic (13.0 ppg.) have led Ulm so far.

Marquee matchup

Buckner has been almost unstoppable under the baskets, making all 15 of his two-point shots (100%) so far. His size, power and post skills allow him to be quite effective down low. Buckner will not have it easy against Grant Jerrett, a solid defensive player who can also stretch the floor with his shots from downtown, thus taking Buckner out of the paint. Two very different big men go head to head at Stade Louis II.

Keys to victory: Monaco

First and foremost, Monaco needs to cut down its turnovers - it ranks third with 15.0 per game - and stay aggressive on defense. Monaco leads the EuroCup in steals at 11.7 per game, forcing opponents into 16.7 turnovers on average. The hosts need to protect their paint a little bit better - opponents hit 56.5% of their two-point shots. Running its offense through Dylan Ennis, Bost and Buckner, its most experienced players, is also important for this exciting showdown.

Keys to victory: Ulm

Ulm has been incredibly accurate from the free-throw line, averaging 87.8% as a team in three games until now. It needs to power the boards a lot more, however - Ulm is last in rebounds at 29.3 per game, and allows opponents to get 11.0 offensive boards on average. The team has a diversified offense in which many players can score in double digits, but defense inside the paint, particularly against Buckner and Ivan Buva, will be critical for Coach Jaka Lakovic's team.
