In the second group D game, Treviso won the Athens AEK with 81:69 at the NutriBullet.

With five wins in six matches, the Hungarian team took first place in the group, four for the Italian team, two for the Latvian champions and one for the Greek club.

Due to injuries, Rielens Railley, the author of the winning basket of the previous game, as well as Alexander Madsen and Reison Hemondss did not help the Rigans.
