  Eurocup 2017-18 regular season



October 24, 2017 - Round 3

The jockeying for group position continues in earnest as Round 3 of the 10-game regular season could begin separating the haves from the have-nots.

Meanwhile, the fourth group is even up and down and so playing three tie-breakers on the same night! Group C gets the action started with three games on Tuesday, while the other three groups go at it on Wednesday. Read more here.

October 12, 2017 - Regular Season, Round 1 MVP: Luke Sikma, ALBA Berlin

luke sikmaTheir home debut in the new 7DAYS EuroCup season could not have gone much better for ALBA Berlin and its new forward, Luka Sikma, who earned the right to be called MVP for Round 1 of the regular season. Sikma was a driving force in ALBA's resounding 111-85 victory over Partizan NIS Belgrade on Wednesday in Group C. It was the most points ever in a non-overtime EuroCup game for ALBA, while Sikma established four career highs to start his third season in the competition, after two with Valencia Basket. The son of former NBA great Jack Sikma posted 19 points on 7-for-9 two-point shooting while making his sole three-point attempt and both of his free throws. His other EuroCup career-high stats were 4 assists, 4 steals and a performance index rating of 31, the best among the 12 games played Tuesday and Wednesday. Following Sikma in second place was Hapoel Bank Yahav Jerusalem guard Curtis Jerrells. Read more here.

7DAYS EuroCup Group D analysis

The six teams in Group D ensure plenty of excitement for EuroCup fans every week! All six teams have winning traditions and star talents. Herbalife Gran Canaria has the oldest player in the competition in playmaker Albert Oliver, who is among the all-time EuroCup leaders in assists and appearances. Dolomiti Energia Trento is led by 2015-16 7DAYS EuroCup Coach of the Year Maurizio Buscaglia and has only found success in its previous EuroCup campaign. The only team without previous EuroCup experience is Tofas Bursa, which can rely on a former All-EuroCup talent in Sammy Mejia. Zenit St. Petersburg added a two-time All-EuroCup choice, Kyle Kuric, and last season’s top rebounder, Drew Gordon, in the offseason. Both ASVEL Villeurbanne and ratiopharm Ulm have loads of young talent, which shows how they are working on the future while competing now. Read more here.

7DAYS EuroCup Group C analysis

A pair of former EuroCup champions, two teams that were each just a win away from taking the EuroCup crown themselves and a pair of former continental champions make Group C a must-watch. The teams in Group C will not lack veteran leadership. The teams most stacked with veterans are Lietuvos Rytas Vilnius and RETAbet Bilbao Basket. The club from the Lithuanian features savvy small forward Mindaugas Lukauskis, who was with Rytas both times the club won the competition in the past, in 2005 and 2009. Add to that 33-year old center Loukas Mavrokefalidis, 32-year old scorer Ben Madgen and fellow 2009 EuroCup champion Arturas Jomantas and you have quite a seasoned squad. Read more here.

7DAYS EuroCup Group B analysis

Group B does not only feature two former champions – Hapoel Bank Yahav Jerusalem and Galatasaray Odeabank Istanbul – but also an ambitious FC Bayern Munich team which has set the bar high this season. And while history might be on the side of those three clubs, Montenegrin champion Buducnost VOLI Podogrica, Lithuanian runner-up Lietkabelis Panevezys and EuroCup returnee Grissin Bon Reggio Emilia will make sure this will be a highly competitive group. Read more here.

7DAYS EuroCup Group A analysis

There are only three teams in the 2017-18 7DAYS EuroCup that featured in the Turkish Airlines EuroLeague last season and two of them – Darussafaka Istanbul and Unics Kazan – will compete in Group A. Unics is also one of five former EuroCup champs in the competition this season. Cedevita Zagreb is only two seasons removed from playing in the EuroLeague and is a former EuroCup semifinalist. With a new name and new look, Levallois Metropolitans will aim high, too. At the other end, MoraBanc Andorra and Fiat Turin are both EuroCup newcomers and after proving themselves in the Spanish and Italian Leagues, respectively, last season, will be looking to show how good they can be on the continental stage.
