Prior to appearing in the eighthfinals for the first time in five Eurocup seasons, Banvit Bandirma of Turkey has made a head coaching change, with Zoran Lukic leaving the bench and Burak Selcuk Ernak replacing him. Lukic had been in his first season with Banvit, compiling a 10-6 overall record in the Eurocup and an 11-8 record in the Turkish League. The change followed Banvit's loss in the Turkish Cup quarterfinals. Ernak, 44, had previously been both an assistant and a head coach for Banvit, from 2007 to 2009. He left the bench to join the club's administration, while also working as a coach for Turkish national teams.
