Hereda San Pablo Burgos grab control of Group H, sit in first place

OLDENBURG (Germany) - Hereda San Pablo Burgos look like they are returning to their two-time championship form after their 85-72 win over EWE Baskets Oldenburg.

Burgos are the only away team to win this week in the Basketball Champions League.

Oldenburg's leading scorer Max Heidegger (17.3 points per game) did not play in the game.

Turning point: Oldenburg led by eight points at halftime and even led by as many as 11, but Burgos had a huge second half and completely turned the game around, outscoring Oldenburg 54-33.

Burgos have now won seven games in which they were losing by 10+ points, the most of any team since they joined the BCL in 2019-20.

Game heroes: Dani Diez (21 points, 6 rebounds) and Vitor Benite (16 points, 4 rebounds, 2 assists) led the way for Burgos, combining to knock down eight of the team's 12 total threes.


Diez's 21 points are the most he has scored in a single BCL game after averaging 6.3 points per game in his previous 24 league appearances and scoring in single digits in his last nine games.


Stats don't lie: Burgos had a 24-20 advantage over Oldenburg in points from the bench with Tyrus McGee scoring 12 of those points for Burgos.

Oldenburg left some key points at the free throw line, as they shot 15-of-23.

Oldenburg did however snatch away 13 steals which is tied for the most in a game this season with Lenovo Tenerife.

Bottom line: Burgos' new addition Julian Gamble made an immediate impact in his first game with the team after coming over from Tenerife.

Gamble put up 17 points, 5 rebounds and 3 steals in 19 minutes.

Oldenburg are now 1-3 and currently sit in fourth place in Group H.

The German club will travel to face Rytas Vilnius in their next game on Dec. 13.

Burgos are now 3-1, currently sit atop the group and are in good shape to possibly win the group.

The Spanish club will travel to face Besiktas Icrypex in their next game on Dec. 14.
