In a strange game, the Germans fell behind 25-12 by the end of the first quarter and still trailed 45-35 at half-time.

The Estonian club, due mostly to the improved play of the Germans, then collapsed in the second half.

In the third quarter, Artland outscored the visitors 32-12.

The hosts went on a 14-1 run to turn a 54-50 deficit into a 64-55 lead.

They then pressed home the advantage over the final 10 minutes for a 23-point triumph.

Artland finished nine of 19 from long range and 21 of 35 from inside the arc.

Tartu were 19 of 27 from two-point range and six of 22 behind the three-point line.

Thorsten Leibenath's side also outrebounded Tartu, 33-20.

Darren Fenn made all three of his shots from long range and had 21 points and Darius Hall contributed 20 points for Artland, while Marek Doronin led Tartu with 14 points.
