A 29-11 run in the second quarter was enough for ALBA Berlin to dominate Partizan in the final round of the Top 16 (97-74).

Six players scored in double figures for the winners, with Rokas Giedraitis leading the way with 19 points.

Vanja Marinkovic had 18 points for the losing squad, as Jock Landale added 11 points and six rebounds and Aleksej Nikolic contributed 10 points. 

ALBA Berlin finished the Top 16 with a 5-1 record and qualified to the quarter-finals. On the other hand, Partizan dropped to 2-4 and was eliminated.

In the other two matches, Crvena Zvezda rallied past Unicaja Malaga (105-89) at home. The Serbians failed to advance to the quarter-finals (2-4), whereas the Spaniards had already qualified prior to the game (3-3).

For their part, already-eliminated Ratiopharm Ulm (3-3) handed ASVEL Villeurbanne its first loss in the Top 16 (86-68), yet the French team had already secured its place in the quarter-finals (5-1).
