Two spots in the 2024 Basketball Champions League Final Four remained open following Gameday 2 of the Quarter-Finals. Tofas and Peristeri bwin forced a win-or-go-home Game 3 on Wednesday.

With Caleb Homesley paving the way, the team based in Bursa countered a brilliant scoring display by Kyle Guy to tie the series against two-time BCL champion Lenovo Tenerife to 1-1. Seeking tickets to Belgrade for the championship-crowning stage of the 2023-24 season between 26 and 28 April, Game 3 will be played in Santiago Martin Arena next Wednesday.

In Greece, Joe Ragland neared yet another double-double, fueling the team coached by Vassilis Spanoulis to a win versus reigning champion Telekom Baskets Bonn. Similar to Tofas and Tenerife, another confident display by the home side set up Game 3, sending the series to the opposite venue. In this case, Telekom Dome hosts the deciding encounter next Tuesday.

Opening the Gameday 2 schedule on Tuesday, Unicaja and UCAM Murcia reached the Semifinals, both for the second time in team history. The co-leaders of Spain’s Liga Endesa completed a sweep versus Promitheas with a convincing win in Patras, Greece. The Universitarios won their first BCL game in Germany, defeating MHP Riesen Ludwigsburg in MHP Arena.
