The dream run of Eurocup surprise of the season, Ratiopharm Ratiopharm Ulm, has now ended. Won against Gescrap Bizkaia Bilbao Basket at home one week ago with a margin of 4 pts, German outfit suffered from a last quarter collapse and lost against Gescrap Bizkaia Bilbao Basket 101:78 at Basque Country.

With an excellent show on offense combined with harsh defense after the first quarter, Gescrap Bizkaia Bilbao Basket managed to lead the game by 10 points advantage at the end of the first half. Visitors tried to comeback but three fouls successively called for Allan Ray who was trying to stop Kostas Vasiliadis coming out of the screens and two crucial 3pointers from youngster Fran Pilepic at the third quarter, broke the German resistance. Nikos Zizis scored 23 for the hosts and Lamont Hamilton (208-C/F-84, college: St.John's) was 1 rebound away from double double with 21 points. German guard Per Guenther tried to organize a comeback for Ratiopharm Ulm with 5/6 3 points shooting and 21 points but neither him, nor John Bryant, who made 21 points and 4 asists, could not prevent the breakdown.

Uxue Gescrap Bizkaia Bilbao Basket, managed to reach semi final stage once before, at the season 2009-2010, where Katsikaris took the helm in the middle of the season. Basque club however, could not capitalize their home advantage and lost against another surprise German rival, ALBA Berlin with the coach Luka Pavicevic, 77-70.

It was a season of mixed results for Gescrap Bizkaia Bilbao Basket until now. After advancing easily with a 6-0 record from last 32 groups, they started with a shocking home loss against CEZ Nymburk and devastating away defeat against VEF Riga. Close to elimination, the players of Fotis Katsikaris reacted under pressure and won against Valencia in successive games, thanks to last second 3 pointer from Kostas Vasiliadis in the second game. They never looked back again after then, with decisive victories against CEZ Nymburk and VEF Riga.

Ratiopharm Ratiopharm Ulm deserves all the respect despite elimination before last four. It was the first Eurocup season of the German Supercup finalists and they managed to advance from a tough Last 16 group along with UNICS Kazan. Young coach Thorsten Leibenath lead his team to famous away wins against Crvena Zvezda and UNICS not to forget their victory against Eurocup favourites Galatasaray with a margin of 21. Ratiopharm Ulm achieved these results, with a rather modest budget and even with an important post player, lost for the season because of injury, Daniel Watts.
