MHP Riesen Ludwigsburg take down Lenovo Tenerife in battle of unbeatens

LUDWIGSBURG (Germany) - In the second game of the week between undefeated teams, MHP Riesen Ludwigsburg beat Lenovo Tenerife 80-69 and are now the only remaining team without a loss in Group A.

Ludwigsburg had a wire-to-wire victory, as they never trailed in the game and had a biggest lead of 16 points.

Tenerife's Kyle Wiltjer scored a game-high 24 points off the bench on 10-of-16 shooting from the field and 3-of-4 from three-point.

Turning point: Tenerife outscored Ludwigsburg 21-15 in the third quarter, even cutting Ludwigsburg's lead to 55-52 and looked to be gaining some momentum.

That was until Jordan Hulls then hit a three-pointer at the buzzer to stretch Ludwigsburg's lead back to 58-52 heading into the fourth quarter.

Hulls' buzzer beater was the second of the game, as Justin Simon hit a crazy shot at the end of the first quarter:

Game heroes: It was a complete team effort from Ludwigsburg, as five players scored in double figures.

  • Tremmell Darden: 16 points, 7 rebounds
  • Justin Simon: 14 points, 9 rebounds, 2 assists
  • Jonathan Baehre: 15 points, 5 rebounds, 2 assists
  • Jonah Radebaugh: 11 points, 4 rebounds, 2 assists
  • Jordan Hulls: 13 points, 4 rebounds, 2 assists

Simon, Baehre, Radebaugh and Hulls combined to knock down eight of the team's 10 total threes.

Stats don't lie: There were two key stats that Ludwigsburg dominated: capitalizing on turnovers and offensive rebounds.

Ludwigsburg forced Tenerife into 18 turnovers (while committing only six) and scored 16 points from those turnovers.

Ludwigsburg also outrebounded Tenerife 19-7 on the offensive glass and scored 28 second chance points from those rebounds, compared to only 3 second chance points from Tenerife.

Bottom line: Ludwigsburg remain unbeaten at 3-0 and sit in first place in Group A.

The German club travels to face Banco di Sardegna Sassari (0-3) next on Nov. 8.

Tenerife are now 2-1 and in second place in the group.

The Spanish club will host Prometey (1-2) next on Nov. 10.
