Although AS Monaco were up 70-67 with six minutes left on the game clock, Limoges bounced back and stunned the EuroLeague side 84-80 (24-20, 20-22, 16-21, 20-21).

Monaco are now tied for 3rd at 7-2, while Limoges stand at 5-4. The 2021 EuroCup winners are hosting EuroLeague leaders Fenerbahce and FC Bayern Munich in the upcoming double week.

Will Yeguete and Javontae Hawkins paved the way for the guests to take a six-point lead (80-74), as Sasa Obradovic's men only scored two buckets in four minutes. Even if Jaron Blossomgame made it 77-80 and then Jordan Loyd tied it at 80 apiece, a crucial layup by Bryce Jones was enough to hand the win to the 1993 European champs.
