The EuroCup Women qualifying round ends
The draw is out for the sixteenth-finals

The main interest in the final round of the EuroCup Women competition was to see if any of the teams without a win could snatch a victory and qualify for the sixteenth-finals without the need for a calculator.

However none of these teams could break the losing streak and as a result Petrolina AEK Larnaca and Sport Algés Dafundo have been eliminated alongside Olivais Coimbra and Vagos.

The most exciting game of the evening went to Aris that just edged out Besiktas (68-66).

Ana Dabovic and Sheana Mosch scored 25 points each as Dynamo-GUVD beat Elitzur Ramla (77-64).

The Russian clubs had a good qualification round with all five clubs qualifying. French clubs also had a smooth run.

The recent history of the competition has not favoured teams that dominated the qualifying round. Since FIBA Europe introduced the ranking system of the sixteenth-finals for the play-off brackets, the number one ranked team has not won the competition.
