The EuroCup was ready to take on its 12th season for 2013-14. As many as 48 teams took part in the start of one of the most crowded regular seasons ever in the competition. Of that whole lot of teams, 16 got eliminated and the survivors embarked on the Last 32 for the next six rounds and when all was said and done, half of the teams advanced to the home-and-away elimination rounds, starting with the eightfinals. Eight teams pulled through to the quarterfinals paired as follows: Crvena Zvezda vs. Budivelnik, UNICS Kazan vs. TED Ankara, ALBA Berlin vs. Valencia Basket and Nizhny Novgorod vs. Hapoel Jerusalem. There were not many surprises and the semifinals paired UNICS with Zvezda and Nizhny with Valencia. UNICS advanced to the final with a home win in Game 2 by 84-67 that could erase the deficit from the Game 1 loss in Belgrade. In the other series, Valencia swept Nizhny with no mercy, making it a UNICS vs. Valencia in the Finals, that were also a home-and-away format. In Game 1, Valencia managed to win at home by 80-67 and took a 13-point cushion to Russia for Game 2. UNICS could not threaten the Spanish team, which also won Game 2 by 73-85 for a combined 25-point difference in the series as Valencia became the first three-time champ in the history of the EuroCup. Justin Doellman was named MVP of the Finals as he scored 26 in Kazan to lead his team to the title and the EuroLeague the following season.
