French and Turkish clubs make up half of the field of teams that qualified for the Last 16 of the EuroCup Women.
After Regular Season action was concluded Thursday, France, the EuroBasket Women 2013 hosts, and Turkey, the World Championship 2014 organisers, each have four representatives in the Eighth Finals.
Defending champions Elitzur Ramla and runners-up Arras are also through to the Last 16.
