Ratiopharm Ulm are on a three game winning stretch in the EuroCup following a 70-63 win against fellow German side Fraport Skyliners Frankfurt. Isaac Fotu’s contribution was 6 points and 6 rebounds including four at the offensive end.
Back to back wins in December carried Ulm out of section play with a 5 win-5 loss record and into the final sixteen.
They now find themselves in Group D and will need to finish in the top two to progress to the quarter-finals. The two German clubs are joined in the group by Russian club Lokomotiv Kuban Krasnodar and French side Asvel Villeurbanne. The opening win against Frankfurt in the group is a welcome boost to Ulm’s chances of a spot in the last eight.
Tai Webster and his Turkish club Galatasaray failed to progress to the EuroCup last 16 after finishing with a 3-7 record in initial pool play. They will now focus on the Turkish League where they currently sit fifth on the table with a 7-5 record.
