EiffelTowers Den Bosch won 74-70 at Strasbourg on Tuesday in the EuroChallenge to move into second place in EuroChallenge Group B.
Don Beck's side prevailed for the third time in five games.
The French outfit gave themselves a shot at advancing to the Last 16, however, as they lost by just four points.
Should they win next week against Khimik and Den Bosch fall at home to Apoel, both teams would have 3-3 records and Strasbourg would finish second on a tie-breaker by virtue of a goal differential in the two meetings between the sides.
As it is, Den Bosch control their own destiny.
The game had an exciting finish.
With 27 seconds remaining, Dean Oliver made two free-throws to give the Dutch outfit a 72-67 lead but Thomas Heurtel answered with a three-pointer for Strasbourg.
Heurtel fouled Jerome Beasley to stop the clock, and the Den Bosch man sank both free-throws for the 74-70 lead.
Strasbourg missed a lay-up at the end.
Kees Akerboom scored 14 points Peter van Paassen 12 and Oliver 10 for the winners.
Oliver finished with a double-double because he also had 10 rebounds.
Strasbourg got a game-high 21 points from Anthony Roberson.
Junie Steenvorde, EiffelTowers Den Bosch:
"We had prepared in a very professional manner and had a good practice before this game. This was an important game and we approached it aggressively. We played for ourselves first; it's our job to get a win. We played for us, for the fans, for the staff too."
Steeve Essart, Strasbourg:
"We are staying focused on [preserving] the goal average [against EiffelTowers]. The game didn't go the way we expected it to go but we still manage to come back from way down and managed to pick ourselves up after the [disastrous] first half which is something we should be proud of. Maybe we did start the game thinking we could win it easy after our win there but it's too late to ask ourselves these kind of questions."
Fred Sarre, Strasbourg coach:
"The goal average [against EiffelTowers] was preserved in the end. I think Den Bosch prepared well for this game and most of all they had a very good start. They took control and although we did play well in the second half we still didn't manage to win. We let them develop their game and the intensity in defense was simply not there. We'll play our next game the way we are supposed to, hopping for a win."
