Qualifying Rounds:

There are 18 teams bidding for the EuroLeague, and many current and former WNBA players appearing on EuroLeagueCup rosters. The 18 teams are divided into three groups of six teams. The Qualifying Round pits teams in each conference against one another with teams facing each conference opponent two times.

The top 16 teams qualify and move on to the Eighth-Final round and the matchups in the best of three series are 1-16, 2-15, 3-14, 4-13, 5-12, 6, 11, 7-10 and 8-9. The eight winners meat in the quarterfinals, those four winners then advance the Final Four and so on until a champion is crowned.
