The Basketball Champions League Final 8 draw conducted Friday shaped the quarterfinal pairings and projected semifinals matchups on the way to the championship game.
The four group-winners of the Round of 16 were placed in Pot 1 and drawn against the four runner-ups placed in Pot 2. Teams in the same Playoffs group were restricted from facing each other in the quarterfinals.
1. Lenovo Tenerife – SIG Strasbourg
2. Hapoel Unet-Credit Holon – Hereda San Pablo Burgos
3. Nizhny Novgorod – Casademont Zaragoza
4. ERA Nymburk – Pinar Karsiyaka
Nizhny Novgorod, Russia, will host the season-ending tournament, it was announced Tuesday. The games are scheduled from the 5th to the 9th of May.
Surviving the competition of a couple of six-game rounds and landing one of the two tops spots of their group in both the Regular Season and the Playoffs, were the necessary achievements for the eight remaining BCL contenders.
