One more time I had the chance to enjoy the 2019-20 U18 Euroleague Basketball Adidas Next Generation Tournament in Valencia, Spain. Not only assisting for watching games, I´m also helping friends/Coaches at College Basketball in USA for Scouting Top European players for their basketball programs.
The Euroleague Basketball Adidas Next Generation Tournament enters its 18th edition this season with teams from 32 clubs and basketball academies representing 14 countries competing to reach the finals at the Turkish Airlines EuroLeague Final Four in Cologne, Germany, where this season's champion will be crowned on May 24, 2020.
The road to Cologne is unchanged from last season's ANGT, with Valencia, Spain; Munich, Germany; Kaunas, Lithuania; and Belgrade, Serbia, hosting three-day qualifying events. Each of the qualifiers will feature eight teams, of which the winner earns an automatic berth to the finals in Cologne. Four additional teams, based on a number of parameters - including their respective performances at the qualifying events – will receive wildcard berths to challenge for the U18 continental crown. The 32 sides represent the Under-18 squads from 13 different EuroLeague and 11 7DAYS EuroCup clubs.
The first qualifier – in Valencia from December 27 to 29, 2019 – will feature host and the winner of last season's Valencia qualifying event, Valencia Basket, 2016 ANGT champion FC Barcelona Lassa, Herbalife Gran Canaria and Unicaja Malaga, all from Spain, as well as LDLC ASVEL Villeurbanne from France, Cibona Zagreb from Croatia, Olympiacos Piraeus from Greece and Tofas Bursa from Turkey.
