Pair of Gaels advance to Eurocup semifinals

Former Saint Mary’s basketball standouts E.J. Rowland and Ian O’Leary have led their professional teams to the semifinals of Eurocup, an international basketball competition.

Rowland’s Banvit Bandirma side takes on Khimki Moscow Regio, while O’Leary’s Herbalife Gran Canaria plays Unics Kazan.  Both games will be played on April 1.

Teams qualify for Eurocup through placement in its domestic league standings, through wild card entries or by its results in the Turkish Airlines Euroleague qualifying rounds.

The semifinal rounds take place April 1 through April 8 and are played in a home-away format with the cumulative score determining which team advances to the final.  The finals are scheduled for April 24 and 29.
