After a two-week break due to the national teams competing in the November Qualifiers, the Basketball Champions League has returned with eight matchups in Week 6 of the season.

The duels ended up being split at the half with four wins for the home and four wins for the away teams. Out of all the squad that stepped on the court this week, Brose Bamberg has been the only one to stay undefeated with a 3-0 record after edging Pinar Karsiyaka.

San Pablo Burgos showed up as the reigning champ and dominated Darussafaka Tekfen while their group rival Happy Casa Brindisi was also convincing against Filou Oostende.

Two short-handed squads in Turk Telekom and Limoges CSP went at it as the former prevailed barely at home, while Rytas couldn’t deal with the absences in the roster and fell to VEF Riga.

Strasbourg got a much-needed home win against Peristeri while Bilbao got its first win in the competition and it came against Fortitudo Bologna which, despite the coaching change, continued the losing streak.

Last but not least, Falco Szombathely and Nizhny Novgorod put on an offensive show with high shooting percentage from all over the floor, however, only one could come out victorious and it was the Russian side in the end.
