The EuroCup knockout round format involves a two game series, with scores totaled to determine a winner if neither team completes a sweep. Either game can end in a tie and the second game will go to overtime even if the score of the game is not tied if the aggregate score is tied. The 16 remaining teams were ranked by group stage performances to determine the bracket, with higher ranked teams going on the road for the first game and hosting the second game. Games below are listed in seed order.

Cappie Pondexter did not care about Besiktas only managing the 16 seed as they beat 1 seed Istanbul University 82-68 to carry a fairly substantial lead into the next game. 2 seed Miskolc had an easier time with their trip to Sweden, trouncing Lulea 86-62 behind Alyssia Brewer. A big batle in the post in Italy saw 3 seed Spartak Moscow leave Napoli with an 81-59 win. Group foes battled in France as 13 seed Angers emerged with a 72-58 win despite another great game from Ashley Bruner. 12 seed Edirne had their full squad for the first time in a long time, helping them best 4 seed Landes 68-61. 11 seed Nantes will take a solid lead with them when they visit Enisey in Russia after a 72-53 win over the 6 seed. Tierra Ruffin-Pratt introduced herself to the European stage for the first time this season with Orduspor, but it was Veronika Bortelova and Nymburk that got a 76-72 win on their home court for their upcoming visit to the 7 seed. 9 seed TTT Riga closed the gap on Reyer Venezia to only lose 67-61, at least making the next game in Italy interesting as Karima Christmas led the way for the 8 seed.
