View Full Version : The 08/09 Eurocup Thread - Top 16 (Post #8)

11-20-2008, 02:40 AM
Eight new qualifiers for the Eurocup regular season left no doubt about their deservedness while finishing the second qualifying round on Tuesday. Four of those survivors not only won two different qualifying rounds of two games each, but capped their runs on the road Tuesday. Among that quartet was BC FMP, a 57-69 winner at Ural Great in Russia to sweep their two-game series as Nemanja Protic and Dragan Labovic each had 19 points. FMP has now reached the second-highest European club competition for six consecutive seasons. ASK Riga also swept, winning at Cajasol in Spain 65-68 as Bruno Sundov dropped 19 points. Two other teams advances while losing, Unics Kazan by 76-73 at Hapoel Jerusalem and Panellinios by 96-72 at BC Kyiv, although both won the first-leg games by more. Although the Panellinios series came down to a three-point difference, the one with the closest consecutive scores saw STB Le Havre rally on the road to beat Base BC Oostende in Belgium 83-88 as Ronald Thompson tallied 19 points. Tuesday's home winners, meanwhile, were Buducnost, which throttled visiting Galatasaray Cafe Crown 93-62 with Vladimir Micov racking up 17 points. Red Star pulled away late to a 96-81 decision over Allianz Swans of Austria, breaking their first-game tie behind Tadija Dragicevic's 21 points. Finally, in a second consecutive blowout, Kalise Gran Canaria topped visiting Benetton Fribourg 103-61 as Joel Freelend posted 19 points. All eight series winners will now get ready for their Eurocup regular season, starting in less than a weeks, on November 24!

if Eurosports Online has broadcasts for some games, there is a good chance I'll make Game Threads for Eurocup games starting next week. However, I usually (last year) only find out what teams are being shown around the time of the game, so don't expect a fancy game thread :)

Qualification possibilities for Regular Season Week 5
Source: EurocupBasketball.com

Six more teams can join the seven that have already qualified for the Eurocup Last 16 in the Week 5 games that tip off across the continent on January 6. The situation in the different groups guarantees excitement in each of the last two weeks of the regular season with several groups that will be decided in week 5 and many more that will go to the wire in Week 6. Only two groups so far have both spots decided and only one of those has first place locked up. On the other hand, Group E features four teams tied at 2-2 and nothing can be decided there until Week 6, but with the possibility of a four-way tie at the end of the regular season, every point counts. Group D is the only one where two teams could potentially advance in Week 5. But we won’t know more until 16 games are played on January 6.

I might not be able to find a link for the game because all the Eurosport streams I can find are showing the Australian Open

worse comes to worst, I'll just post the final scores and game recaps
