In basketball, the playoff schedule is known. With a BNXT win over Feyenoord (71-91), the Antwerp Giants finished fourth and had a ground advantage in the quarter-finals.
Ostend (first) and Kangaros Mechelen (second) were already sure of their place in the semi-finals of the Belgian qualifiers. Leuven, Bergen and the Antwerp Giants competed for third, fourth and fifth place in their country on the final day of the BNXT League.
Leuven did nothing wrong at Zwolle (57-82), as did Bergen at Den Bosch (83-80). As the Antwerp Giants easily beat Red Lantern Feyenoord (71-91), they saw the house advantage slip away in the playoffs.
The quarter-final matches will begin next Tuesday. The Giants greet Bergen, Leuven takes home sixth for Charleroi.
Whoever wins twice; push through. The winner of Antwerp-Bergen will play Ostend, the winner of Leuven-Charleroi will play against Mechelen.
