Eighthfinals Analysis: JSF Nanterre vs. Budivelnik Kiev
JSF Nanterre
RECORD
RS (EB), 3-7
L32, 4-2, 1st

Budivelnik Kiev and JSF Nanterre are facing for the third time this season. Both teams exchanged home wins in the Turkish Airlines Euroleague and are set to go against each other in the Eurocup Eighthfinals. Both teams are undefeated at home in this year's Eurocup, which adds even more anticipation to it, as every possession will count. Only two elimination round teams collected fewer rebounds than Nanterre in the Last 32 - but Budivelnik was one of them. Budivelnik leads all elimination round teams in free throws made (109-of-131, 83.2%) and is fourth in assists (122). Nanterre has not excelled in free throw accuracy (73.4%) but it did from beyond the three-point line (42.1% to Budivelnik's 35.2%). Budivelnik reached the Eurocup semifinals last season and has more experience but Nanterre gets better every year and wants to keep its great momentum going.
