Seven Gamedays down, seven to go in the Basketball Champions League Regular Season.

With the first half of the Basketball Champions League Regular Season in the books, all 32 teams are set to collide with their group foes in opposite venues. A privileged few are closer than others to clinching a playoffs berth.

Group A features a three-way tie on top with BAXI Manresa the big winner of the week. The club from Spain beat fellow leader Dinamo Sassari and reached the top with Turk Telekom dropping its home game to revamped SIG Strasbourg.

Hapoel Bank Yahav Jerusalem and AEK are the two sides with five wins in Group B. The Israeli team took care of business opposite to Telenet Giants Antwerp despite losing J’Covan Brown, while the Greek outlet overcame Anwil Wloclawek with a strong finish.

No sharing in Group C with Iberostar Tenerife completing the cycle by overpowering Brose Bamberg at home. Still plenty of games left, but it looks like the highest goal for the rest of the teams can only be second place.

JDA Dijon got the job done on the road against Besiktas Sompo Sigorta in impressive fashion. A losing outing for Telekom Baskets Bonn and Neptunas Klaipeda created a one-point lead for the French team in Group D.
