FIBA Europe have confirmed the Eighth-final pairing and final brackets for the 2012 EuroCup Women.
The brackets were determined as follows: The top two teams from each of the eight groups qualified automatically. The qualifiers have been ranked according to their win/loss percentage and their point average coefficient.
The brackets for the rest of the competition follow the traditional knock-out format with the eighth-final teams pairing as the base.
All the matches in the knock-out phase including the final is a two-match aggregate score series. The higher seeded team plays away for the first game and then hosts the second game.
If the teams are tied after regulation time during the second game then overtime has to be played.
Since FIBA Europe moved to the ranking system the number 1 seeds have not qualified so far for the final of this competition. Dynamo Kursk as number 1 seeds will be challenging to overcome this jinx.
All the four Turkish clubs have qualified for the eight-final while four from the five initial French clubs made it through.
At least one French club is guaranteed a place in the last eight with Basket Landes having to play Arras. USO Mondeville ranked 15th and face Turkish Club Botas Spor while Hainaut Basket meet Belgium neighbours Dexia Namur.
