On Wednesday, the Basketball Champions League Quarter-Finals picture was almost complete, with seven of the eight final participants which took their spots. However, this wasn’t the only competition in which things got clearer, as the FIBA Europe Cup ended its Quarter-Finals stage.
Following Cholet Basket’s victory against Budivelnyk Kyiv on Tuesday, BC Kalev/Cramo, Karhu Basket, and Anwil Wloclawek joined the list of qualified teams in the Semi-Finals.
The French team was dragged by Dominic Artis’ 26 points against the Ukrainian side and came back from the 73-72 loss of the first leg with an 83-79 victory at home.
The same happened to Anwil Wloclawek, which lost against Gaziantep in the first leg in Poland but managed to turn things around on the road in Turkey, thanks to 19 points from former Reyer Venezia player Victor Sanders. Codi Miller-McIntyre did his best with 29 points but he wasn’t enough.
Karhu Basket wrote history as the first Finnish team which qualified for the FIBA Europe Cup Semi-Finals, with former Brindisi forward Dikembe Dixson scoring 18 points.
Finally, BC Kalev/Cramo found upset wins both in Germany and Estonia against Brose Bamberg. The former won 85-67 on the road against Oren Amiel’s team.
