Congratulations are in order to the eight teams still alive in the hunt for the 2021 7DAYS EuroCup crown! Those teams, which earned their spots in a thrilling Top 16, will enjoy a one-week break before the start of the quarterfinals, which will be in a best-of-three format, just like all the remaining series in the EuroCup playoffs.
The opening games of each quarterfinals series will be played on Monday, March 22, and Tuesday, March 23, on the home courts of the Top 16 group winners. Games 2 will be hosted by the teams that finished second in their Top 16 groups, on Thursday, March 25, and Friday, March 26. Any series that goes the distance will feature a Game 3 on Wednesday, March 31 on the home courts where the series openers were played.
The quarterfinals lineup features an undefeated Virtus Segafredo Bologna; past champions Joventut Badalona, Lokomotiv Kuban Krasnodar and UNICS Kazan as well as a former EuroCup runner up, Herbalife Gran Canaria. All eight teams have qualified for the quarterfinals in the past and three of them - AS Monaco, Virtus and UNICS – have qualified for the second straight season.
The quarterfinals winners will start the semifinals on Tuesday, April 6. Home-court advantage in all remaining series will be based on the final Top 16 positions of all teams, thus Virtus, as the only undefeated team in the Top 16, has earned home-court advantage through the finals.
