Week 5 of 2012-13 Eurocup Regular season
Time for new excitements in Week 5 in Eurocup Regular season. After four games only four teams qualified and as many as 12 spots up for grabs.
Three games will be played today, and the rest of thirteen games will be played tomorrow, Wednesday, December 5.
Actually, I am sure that we can say that real excitement starting just now. As we said, 12 more spots for Last 16 phase and battle may begin.
In the earliest game this week, VEF Riga (1-3) hosts Artland Dragons Quakenbrueck (1-3) in Group C. Artland will be out with a loss and VEF will be on the ropes if it cannot win this week.
Crvena Zvezda Diva already booked ticket for Last 16 phase and would be relaxed, but coach Vlada Vukoicic said before tomorrow’s game that defeat is not the option.
There are so many calculations at this moment so we will not talk about it. We will know much more after this Week 5 finish tomorrow.
At this moment, Crvena Zvezda Diva, Bilbao Basket, BC Triumph Lyubertsy and BC Spartak SPB secured spot in next phase.
The rest of 28 teams will keep struggling for the rest of 12 spots, and it will give us great matches and chance to enjoy in quality Basketball games.
