As eurocupbasketball.com reports, FIAT TORINO grabbed a valuable road win in its first-ever 7DAYS EuroCup game by edging CEDEVITA ZAGREB 83-86 in the Croatian capital in Group A on Wednesday.
Next week Fiat Torino will faces another EuroCup newcomer, Morabanc Andorra, next Tuesday. This is one of the most interesting macthes of the next week, as you can see in our European Basketball Calendar.
EuroCup 2017/2018 is here. On Tuesday 11 October the games begin!
There are 24 teams divided into 4 groups of six teams each, round robin format for a total of 10 games played by each team. The bast 4 of each group advance to the Top 16. We have 3 Italiam teams involved in this trophy: Fiat Torino (group A), Grissin Bon Reggio Emilia (group B) and Dolomiti Energia Trento (group D).
I have a question for you. Are you sure EuroCup is more interesting than Basketball Champions League? I am not!
Today, roving around basketball in internet we found this wonderful article about the MACCABI TEL AVIV adventure in the 1977 EuroCup.
This story has been written by native Israeli Columnist Becky Griffin and published on online magazine Tablet. Maccabi won the 1977 EuroCup, but it was the win over the mighty Red Army team in the semifinals that was important.
On Tablet you can read the full story and look at the videos of that wonderful adventure, the basketball victory that put Israel on the map.
Good news continue for the European basketball. As europeanbasketball.net reports, online sportsbook Tempobet has become its new, official national betting partner in Germany for the upcoming season in both the Turkish Airlines EuroLeague and 7DAYS EuroCup.
I am set to put Tempobet in my Top 10 bookmakers for Euroleague betting. As soon as I will publish the new list.
It’s Saturday evening in Florence and I am sitting in my kitchen. Euroleague season is over and, waiting for dinner, this is the right moment to see what’s going on European basketball.
EUROLEAGUE: CSKA Moscow won the title beating Fenerbahce in Berlin. Next season Euroleague will have 16 teams fighting for the title, but the true battle has alreday started: Euroleague vs FIBA Europe. I don’t have anything against FIBA, anyway I back Euroleague in this duel, as I believe in free market and I think every club should have the right to choose its favorite competition.
EUROCUP: Galasaray takes the crown. Another winning season for Turkish basketball. Unfortunately this competion is set to downsize next season, anyway I am set to go on following Eurocup.
FIBA EUROPE CUP: Frankfurt Skyliners won the title. Probably someone still thinks German basketball is not interesting, but I don’t agree as now Germany has a very interesting league and German clubs will soon fight for bigger trophies. By the way, all the FIBA Europe competions will be followed by this site in season 2016/2017.
VTB UNITED LEAGUE: CSKA Moscow and Unics Kazan meet in the final series that start on June 1. It would be interesting to place some bets on this duel. Do you agree?
ADRIATIC LEAGUE: Crvena Zvezda secured the title. You know, I love this league. I hope you love it too.
Well, dinner is ready. Bye bye.
