CSU Mobitelco are finding success in Romania's top flight so far this season.
With four wins in their opening five games, club supremo Mircea Cristescu hopes the team is building momentum for the EuroChallenge.
"We've been on an upward trend since the first official game," Cristescu said.
"We hope to reach top form by the beginning of the EuroChallenge campaign."
Led by coach Marcel Tenter, the team based in Cluj-Napoca will play in Group E against Elan Chalon, Antwerp Giants and BC Enisey.
Kyndall Dykes, a 24-year-old American guard/forward with the CSU Mobitelco, said: "The EuroChallenge, I've talked to a lot of friends who have played in the competition and they told me it would be difficult.
"There are very long and tiring journeys, but if we are mentally strong, we can play well.
"We do not yet know the teams, their players, but I'm sure all will play well.
"We'll do our scouting and will be hoping to do the same, to do well."
CSU have come into the season as the defending champions of Romania after a 4-2 Finals triumph over Ploiesti.
Enisey are one of the Russian teams taking part in the EuroChallenge and they've already been in some tough games in both the VTB United League, and the PBL.
They also had a dream comeback to make it into the EuroChallenge.
After losing the first leg of their Qualifying Round tie at Spartak Primorye by 17 points, they returned home and won the second leg by 23.
At the weekend in the VTB United League, Enisey met a Lietuvos Rytas side led by boss Aleksandar Dzikic, the coach of 2011 EuroChallenge winners KRKA Novo Mesto.
The Vilnius club was favored and beat Enisey, 82-75, but Dzikic was impressed by the Russian outfit.
"This team is no joke," he said.
"It's a good team which picked up some experienced players."
Among them are Jasmin Hukic, the veteran forward from Bosnia and Herzegovina, Israel national team point guard Afik Nissim, Serbia point guard Marko Marinovic and American center Lonny Baxter.
"I think that with each game, we will gain shape and improve the quality of the game," said Stevan Karadzic, the coach of Enisey, after the defeat to Lietuvos Rytas.
Elan Chalon will not be pushovers.
Already in France's LNB, Gregor Beugnot's team has won close games.
They edged Gravelines Dunkerque, 77-73, in their opener and over the weekend prevailed, 77-75, at Dijon.
In Europe, Chalon will be looking to get rid of their Eurocup Qualifying Round hangover.

Taking on Cedevita and on top by 22 points in the fourth quarter of the first leg, Chalon only ended up winning 78-73.
In the second leg, they fell 84-69 in Croatia and missed out on the Eurocup.
Antwerp, meanwhile, have played in the EuroChallenge the last two seasons and will be liking their chances of doing well.
However, the club can't seem to stay away from the injury bug.
They had their share of fitness issues in 2010-11 and already, they have lost guard Ralph Biggs for between two and four weeks with a sprained left knee.

Chalon won the club's first ever trophy in May, beating Limoges in the Coupe de France.
