The EuroCup regular season is now over and we now know all of the teams that will be taking place when the tournament resumes with the Top 16 in 2017. There are four groups, all with four teams, and each group has at least one former winner of the tournament, which means that there is a great sense of history in the next stage of the EuroCup.
The format of the Top 16 sees each team play each other home and away during the group and the games will take place over six weeks between 4th of January and 8th of February. Every team will play six games each.
