The road to the 2011 Turkish Airlines Euroleague Final Four was mapped out for the remaining teams in the competition on Tuesday with the draw for the Top 16 phase, held at the Mediapro Auditorium in Barcelona, Spain. All of the 16 teams that survived a scintillating regular season are hoping to return to Barcelona in just four months for the 2011 Euroleague Basketball Final Four. Following the Top 16 Draw, each knows which opponents they will need to beat in order to make that return trip. Regular season group winners Maccabi Electra Tel Aviv, Olympiacos Piraeus, Montepaschi Siena and Panathinaikos Athens headline the four Top 16 groups of four teams each. Every group will feature six games per team in a round-robin setup between January 19 and March 3. The teams with the best two records in each Top 16 group advance to the Playoffs, best-of-five series held between March 22 and April 6. The four Playoffs winners advance to the Final Four, May 6 to 8 at Palau Sant Jordi, where this season's Euroleague champion will be crowned. Tuesday's draw was attended by representatives from all 16 clubs that advanced from the regular season as well as by Euroleague Basketball sponsors, officials from the Barcelona municipal government, and media members from across Europe. The draw was also broadcast on local TV and via Euroleague.net to audiences around the world.
