Competition System

  • The six remaining teams after the knock-out rounds enter a Semifinal Group Stage, played as a round-robin. The final standing is based on individual wins and defeats. In case of a tie between two or more teams after this group stage, the following criteria is used: 1) number of wins in one-to-one games between the teams; 2) basket average between the teams; 3) general basket average within the group.
  • The winner and the runner-up of the Semifinal Group Stage qualify for the final, played at a predetermined venue.
