Turk Telekom grabbed the last available ticket for the EuroCup playoffs. The Turkish side advanced after the 84 – 77 win of Aris Thessaloniki over Dolomiti Energia Trento that eliminated the latter’s postseason chances.

With Hall of Famer and club legend Nick Galis in attendance, Aris took a victory of prestige mostly since they had already secured the fifth spot and couldn’t go higher than that in the standings.

Vassilis Toliopoulos scored 17 points for the winning side while Kamar Baldwin had 20 points for Trento.

Hapoel Tel Aviv grabbed a big 94 – 73 road win over Besiktas to secure second place in Group A and a spot in the quarterfinals. Tomer Ginat (16 points, seven rebounds) and Will Cummings (16 points, four assists) stood out from the winning side.

Angel Delgado led Besiktas with 13 points and 15 rebounds.

In the rest of the last-round games for Group A, Prometey beat Badalona 98-80, London prevailed over Vilnius (80-85) and Paris got the 119-66 win over disappointed Cedevita.

In Group B, Buducnost and Lietkabelis registered wins over  Gran Canaria (90-77) and Cluj-Napoca (92-87) respectively but on both cases, the winners already didn’t have qualifications chances.

The EighthFinals matchups in the playoffs are the following

London Lions – Turk Telekom
Prometey Slobozhanske – Aris Thessaloniki
Dreamland Gran Canaria – Besiktas Emlakjet Istanbul
Ratiopharm Ulm against Joventut Badalona

All matches are held with the single-game elimination format and they are held on the homecourt of the teams mentioned first. The games will be played on March 5 and 6.
