Szolnoki Olaj and Triumph Lyubertsy join Elan Chalon and Besiktas Milangaz in the EuroChallenge Final Four 2012.

Szolnoki and Lyubertsy crowned their successful campaigns so far with road wins to win their respective series 2-1.

Szolnoki prevailed in a tight game 82-78 in Ventspils behind 20 points, five rebounds and five assists by Obie Trotter.

Triumph travelled to Spain and upset one of the favourites to win the competition, Fuenlabrada with an inspiring game.

Szolnoki will take on Besiktas in the Semi-Finals, while Elan Chalon will be the opponents for Triumph.

On Thursday, Elan Chalon and Besiktas had already clinched a spot in the Final Four by sweeping their Quarter-Final Play-Offs series 2-0 respectively.

In an all-French affair, Elan Chalon had beaten Roanne Basket in two hard fought games that were both decided by two mere points.

Besiktas, who finished second in their last 16 group behind Fuenlabrada, defeated German side Artland Dragons with a narrow win on the road and a solid home win.

The Final Four, which will take place on 27 and 29 April, will be hosted by one of the participating clubs.

The deadline for all clubs to submit a bid to host the event is Wednesday 21 March at 17:00 CET.
