Medias scored the first four points of the second half to open the lead back to seven points - 45-38 - before Campbell scored seven points in a 12-5 Dijon run to even the contest at 50-50. Metan were ahead 55-53 after three quarters.

A 6-0 Dijon run gave them the lead 71-70 and Jeremy Leloup's triple made it 79-74 for the French with one minute to play. But Dundjerski made two foul shots with five seconds remaining to force overtime. In the extra session, Medias used a late 6-0 run to secure the win.
