EWE Baskets Oldenburg clinched a win away from home at Bemaco SPU Nitra on the opening day of the EuroChallenge Regular Season.
Adam Chubb led the way with 23 points and Robert Brown scored 22 as the German club prevailed on Tuesday, 77-72.
Nitra trailed early on but gave their fans hope of a victory when Ater Majok capped a 12-0 run with two free-throws to tie the game at 38-38 late in the first half.
Brown sank three of four free-throw attempts at the end of the second quarter to give the visitors a 41-38 lead.
After going in front by nine and seeing that whittled to just a two-point advantage, the German outfit again seemed to take control with a Brown put-back leaving them on top, 61-55, with 10 minutes remaining.
Nitra three times reduced the arrears to four points in the fourth quarter but EWE Baskets protected their lead and ended up winning by five.
Puerto Rican point guard Denis Clemente had a game-high 29 points in defeat.
