#4 ALBA Berlin qualified for the Top 16 with a 71-65 road win over #6 Limoges (France). Niels Giffey had 3 points/3 rebounds in 19 minutes for ALBA, who was led by Jamel McLean’s (Xavier) 18 points. The Top 16 is a 14 game round robin season, culminating in the Turkish Airlines Euroleague Final Four on May 15th in Madrid. This could create a potential UConn-UConn matchup as Marcus Williams’ club Crvena Zvezda (Serbia) has also qualified out of Group D. Jerome Dyson is the lone UConn Euroleague representative whose team did not qualify for the Top 16. ALBA returns to action December 19th versus Zagreb (Croatia).
