The Torneo Súper 8 (English: Super 8 Tournament) is a professional basketball cup competition that takes place each year between clubs from Argentina's top basketball league, the Liga Nacional de Básquet. It takes place during the middle of the season, usually in the month of December, before the league's year-end recess. It is an 8 team single-elimination knockout tournament and is held in one arena. It is held under a format similar to that of the Spanish King's Cup. The winner of the tournament receives a place in the South American League.
