The Take

Andorra has qualified to the Top 16 for the second consecutive season and looks for a better spot in the standings to avoid as many powerhouses as possible in the Top 16. Rishon is out of chances to advance, but has been improving during the season and still looks for its first-ever 7DAYS EuroCup road win. Clevin Hannah (11.9 ppg.) is Andorra's top scorer, followed by Dejan Todorovic (11.0 ppg.) and Frantz Massenat (11.0 ppg.). Alex Hamilton (17.3 ppg., 5.4 apg.), Jordan Swing (12.4 ppg.) and Johnathan Williams (11.4 ppg., 8.0 rpg.) have led Rishon this season. 

Marquee matchup

Alex Hamilton leads the EuroCup in performance index rating (22.9 PIR) mainly because of his versatility; he can hit outside shots, run the floor, collect steals and get fouled to go to the free-throw line often. Hamilton, however, will not have it easy against Andorra's Dejan Todorovic, an explosive player with great athleticism who provides a lot of intensity and character on defense. Expect a fun-to-watch matchup in Andorra.

Keys to victory: Andorra

Andorra is the highest-scoring team in the competition (86.1 ppg.) mainly because of its excellent two-point shooting percentage (58.7%). Two of its most effective scorers, Tyson Perez and Bandja Sy, are sidelined, so Nacho Llovet, Moussa Diagne and Dejan Musli may see extended playing time around the baskets. If Andorra keeps sharing the ball well (19.5 apg.), finding good shots in transition, it will have good chances to get this win.

Keys to victory: Rishon

Rishon has struggled to score all season, averaging just 74.5 points per game. It is at the bottom of the standings in two-point shooting percentage (45.2%) and has also struggled from the foul line (70.9% FT). Rishon is eliminated, so a different rotation may be used in this game and some players may have the chance to see more playing time than usual. It is its last chance to get a road win in the EuroCup this season, so expect Rishon to be a tough opponent.
