The Basketball Champions League laying out a six-game round-robin schedule to replace the traditional form of the Playoffs with a Round of 16 group stage generated exciting action all across Europe. Eight teams survived punching in a Final 8 ticket and one player of each advancing side, as picked out by Eurohoops, made their presence felt most.
Group I surfaced Hapoel Unet-Credit Holon and Pinar Karsiyaka. Spanish clubs, Lenovo Tenerife and Hereda San Pablo Burgos progressed through Group J. Nizhny Novgorod and SIG Strasbourg clinched the Group K berths. ERA Nymburk and Casademont Zaragoza got the job done in Group L.
Here are the players, in alphabetical order, with the largest input in those successful Final 8 bids.
