Quarter-Final Matchups Decided


Eight clubs representing five countries will fight it out in the quarter-final playoffs for a spot in the EuroCup Women 2008 semi-finals.

Israel, Russia and Italy all have two clubs each in the last eight of the competition.

The quarter-finals matchups were decided after a round of upsets in the eighth-finals return legs.

Israeli clubs provided the round's most notable results. Elitzur Ramla completed the elimination of MBK Ruzomberok with a 70-62 win on the road while Electra Ramat-Hasharon's comeback stunned Extrugasa.

Elitzur Ramla will now meet Levoni Taranto who overcame Gorzow. Electra will face Galatasaray Istanbul.

BC Moscow thumped Panionios for a second time to set up an all-Russian tie against Chevakata who had shocked Umana Reyer Venezia in Italy the night before.

Gospic ousted Botas Spor with a pair of victories and will now play Beretta-Famila Schio whose loss at Nadezhda was without any consequences as the Italians held a clear advantage from the first leg.

BC Moscow, Beretta-Famila Schio, Levoni Taranto and Galatasaray, as the higher ranked teams, will play the first leg of their quarter-finals away.

The first games are scheduled for 21st February with the return legs to be played a week later, on 28th February.
