Belgium in the spotlight and 13 other facts you might have missed this week

MIES (Switzerland) - The Basketball Champions League Play-Offs are over! But before focusing on the Final Four, let's have a look a some key facts to take away after this week's games.

A couple of attendance records were broken this week. The single game attendance (BCL all-time) was broken at OAKA Arena in Athens, with 18'310 spectators, and the Play-Offs average attendance was also broken with close to 7'000 fans on average at each game.


  • The defending champion hasn't reach the Final Four  for the second consecutive season in BCL.
  • Telenet Giants Antwerp are the first Belgian team qualifying for a BCL Final Four. Belgium is the seventh country represented in BCL's Final Four.
  • A Spanish team will be represented in the BCL Final Four for the third consecutive season: no other country has been represented in each Final Four in the competition.
  • Iberostar Tenerife have conceded fewer than 65 points in six of their seven home games in BCL Play-Offs history: they have lost the only game in which they have conceded more than 65 points at home (83 v UCAM Murcia in March 2018).
  • Segafredo Virtus Bologna are the only team in BCL to have scored 45+ points in the paint in multiple Play-Offs games in BCL this season.
