Taking on BC Zagreb in Croatia, Michael Koch's team prevailed 100-96.

Bonn had led by nine points in the first half but Zagreb fought back and the game turned into a thriller.

With his team trailing 83-80, Bonn's Jeremy Hunt tied the contest with a shot from the arc just 29 seconds from the end.

He then had a chance to win at the death but was off target with a jumper.

Mark Tyndale started the overtime with a three-pointer for Bonn and they went in front by as many as eight points.

Zagreb refused to go away and twice pulled to within one.

Gregory Renfroe's three-pointer reduced the Bonn lead to 95-94, only for Hunt to answer with a jump shot.

Mario Kasun then dunked to close the gap to 97-96.

After Zagreb fouled Tyndale and he split two free-throws, Hunt's defense sealed victory when he intercepted a pass by Damir Mulaomerovic.

Hunt made two free-throws to finish the game and take his tally 25 points.

Luka Zoric, the Croatia international, led all players with 29 points in defeat.
