FIBA Europe Cup 2018-19

(From 20-09-2018 to 1-05-2019)

 

 

COMPETITION SYSTEM

·         27 teams from countries affiliated to FIBA Europe, together with 18 losers of the Qualifying Stage in Champions League (in red), are eligible to participate in the competition (the latter, however, may opt out).

·          21 teams enter a Qualifying Stage, divided into two rounds played on a home and away basis: 10 teams in a First Qualifying Round and 11 more in a Second Qualifying Round.

·          The 8 winners after the Qualifying Stage join 6 byes and 18 teams from Champions League in a Regular Season, divided into eight groups of four teams each playing a round-robin. The final standing is based on individual wins and defeats. In case of a tie between two or more teams after this group stage, the following criteria is used to decide the final classification: 1) number of wins in head-to-head games between the teams; 2) basket average between the teams; 3) general basket average at the end of the Regular Season; 4) points scored; 5) sum of quotients of points scored and points allowed.

·          The group winners and runners-up after the Regular Season qualify for the Second Round, comprising four groups of four teams each playing a round-robin.

·          The group winners, runners-up and third-placed teams after the Second Round, together with four entrants among the fifth and sixth qualified teams from each group of Basketball Champions League Regular Season (in red), will enter an 1/8 Final playoff (home and away games). The teams qualified after this knock-out round will advance to the 1/4 Finals and further 1/2 Finals (also played with the same home-and-away system).

·          The two teams reaching the last round will play a two-legged final. The winner gets a wild card to participate in Eurocup 2019-20.

RESUMEN (SUMMARY)

En el partido de ida de la final de la Copa de Europa, el Dinamo Sassari derrotó al s.Oliver Würzburg por un apretado 89-84, lo que mantiene la emoción de cara al encuentro de vuelta, que se disputará dentro de una semana en Alemania. En el conjunto sardo brilló especialmente el ala-pívot estadounidense Rashawn Thomas, autor de 27 puntos y 11 rebotes, aunque en la segunda mitad resultó igualmente decisiva para la victoria local la aportación de Marco Spissu y Achille Polonara (con 14 y 13 puntos, respectivamente). En el equipo entrenado por Denis Wucherer destacaron el escolta norteamericano Cameron Wells (22 puntos), el alero australiano Xavier Cooks (19) y el ala-pívot estadounidense Devin Oliver (17).

 

Jack Cooley estrenó el marcador con una canasta tras rebote ofensivo, pero rápidamente el conjunto alemán dio muestras de que no había viajado a Italia de turismo. Un mate de Mike Morrison dio paso a un parcial de 3-15 completado con un triple de Devin Oliver (5-15, min. 6) que obligó a Gianmarco Pozzecco a pedir su primer tiempo muerto. La entrada en acción de un hiperactivo Rashawn Thomas, con tres triples, dio alas a su equipo, y a la conclusión de los primeros diez minutos el Dinamo Sassari había logrado revertir la situación (24-22). En el segundo cuarto, Rashawn Thomas continuó con su particular exhibición de canastas, rebotes y tapones, aunque la aportación ofensiva de Cameron Wells logró situar de nuevo por delante a s.Oliver Würzburg. Al descanso se llegó con las espadas en todo lo alto (45-45).

 

El paso por vestuarios pareció sentar mejor al Dinamo. El pívot norteamericano Jack Cooley comenzó a incomodar en la pintura a su par Mike Morrison y un triple de Jaime Smith disparó la ventaja local a los ocho puntos (58-50, min. 24). Pero el cuadro alemán no bajó los brazos, y gracias a la aportación ofensiva de Xavier Cooks y Skyler Bowlin logró empatar de nuevo (63-63, min. 29). En los últimos segundos del tercer cuarto, una falta en ataque de Tyrus McGee y una bandeja de Devin Oliver permitieron a los de Würzburg cerrar el periodo con ventaja (65-67). Cameron Wells puso el +4 para su equipo al comienzo del último cuarto, pero dos triples de Thomas y Spissu devolvieron al Dinamo al +2 (71-69, min. 32). Un nuevo lanzamiento exterior desde diez metros del joven base italiano estiró de nuevo la ventaja italiana (82-75, min. 36), que superó por vez primera los diez puntos tras un mate de Achille Polonara que llevó la locura a las gradas de un abarrotado PalaSerradimigni (86-75, min. 38). Sendos triples de Jordan Hulls y Cameron Wells en los instantes finales lograron minimizar los daños para s.Oliver, que mantiene intactas sus esperanzas de cara al partido de vuelta.

RESUMEN (SUMMARY)

El Dinamo Sassari conquistó su primer título europeo al volver a derrotar en el partido de vuelta de la final de la Copa de Europa al s.Oliver Würzburg (79-81), como ya hiciera en la ida disputada en Italia. Pese a los esfuerzos del equipo local, liderado por Skyler Bowlin (20 puntos y 5 asistencias) y Cameron Wells (18 y 10), el alero canadiense Dyshawn Pierre (19 puntos y 7 rebotes) resultó determinante en la victoria del cuadro sardo.

 

En medio de un ensordecedor ambiente, s.Oliver se adelantó 5-0 dentro del primer minuto. Pese a que Rashawn Thomas logró empatar el partido para el conjunto insular con una bandeja (10-10, min. 4), nuevamente los alemanes volvieron a recuperar la desventaja de la ida (21-14, min. 7). Los italianos siguieron haciendo la goma, pero fueron los locales los que lograron distanciarse al final del primer cuarto (26-19). En el segundo periodo, una canasta de Cameron Wells elevó por vez primera la ventaja de los de Würzburg a los diez puntos (39-29, min. 17). Dos rápidos contraataques de Polonara y Cooley vuelven a acercar al Dinamo, pero un triple de Florian Koch da oxígeno a los anfitriones (42-33, min. 18). Al descanso se llega con la eliminatoria igualada (46-41).

 

Dos parciales por bando en el tercer cuarto, 7-0 para los alemanes (57-46, min. 25) y otro a continuación de 11-2 para los italianos (59-57, min. 28) son el reflejo de un partido sin dueño en el que ni Würzburg ni Dinamo son capaces de imponer su ritmo. Una bandeja de Tyrus McGee en los instantes finales del periodo aprieta de nuevo el marcador y asegura un final de partido vibrante (65-64). Una bandeja de Stefano Gentile al comienzo del último cuarto supone la primera ventaja del conjunto sardo en todo el partido. Desde ese momento, el encuentro entra en una fase de máxima igualdad y diferencias mínimas a favor de uno y otro equipo, con continuos fallos y pérdidas de balón. Dentro ya del último minuto el Dinamo Sassari parece tener asegurado el título (77-78), más aún tras un robo de balón de Marco Spissu a falta de 38 segundos. El interminable desfile de personales y tiros libres en los instantes finales favoreció al conjunto sardo, y los locales ni siquiera pudieron lograr la victoria delante de sus aficionados al fallar Skyler Bowlin un último lanzamiento triple.
