For the third time, two Spanish teams win the EuroLeague and the EuroCup in the same year

Published

Real Madrid and Gran Canaria managed the EuroLeague and EuroCup double this year. For the third time, two Spanish teams reach the top of both competitions in the same season.

The consistency of the Spanish teams in recent years is admirable. This year, for the third time since 2000, two teams from the Iberian Peninsula have won the EuroLeague and the EuroCup in the same season.

Through the hands of Sergio Yul, Real Olympiakos hit the canvas in the Final Four 2023 in Kaunas and lifted their 11th trophy in Europe’s top club competition. Not long ago, Gran Canaria had defeated Turk Telekom to become champions of the EuroCup, securing their place in the EuroLeague. Although their presence there next season is far from certain, it needs to be thought about.

Barcelona and Valencia have actually managed this informal double twice in the past. In the 2002/03 season, the Blaugrana won their first EuroLeague, while the Orange were crowned EuroCup champions and clinched their first European title. Simultaneous successes in the EuroLeague and the EuroCup were achieved again by Barcelona and Valencia in the 2009/10 season.

Yogi Ferrell is back in the ABA league, but not for Partizan

Published

on

Partizan’s courtship of Yogi Ferrell didn’t end in marriage, but the diminutive American guard returned to the ABA league and signed a contract with Buduchnost.

Yogi Ferrell (1993, 1:83 minutes) and Partizan were close to agreeing on a contract for a few months with the option of an extension until the end of the season. However, the former Panathinaikos guard eventually backed down when he saw that Black and White Belgrade’s fans weren’t very keen on the sound of his name.

However, the small winger wanted to leave China and return to Europe, so he reached an agreement with Buduchnost and will therefore play in the ABA League again, as well as the EuroCup.

Last season, while playing for Cedevita, Ferrell averaged 16.4 points, 2.9 rebounds and 5.4 assists in 29 Adriatic League games.

Toliopoulos was eliminated from the away game against Trent

Published

Vassilis Toliopoulos was excluded – at the last moment – ​​from the Aris team for the away game against Trento in the EuroCup.

With a serious problem at the last moment, the Aris Mission traveled to the EuroCup in Italy with a view to the away game against Trento (November 29th, 9:00 p.m.).

The reason for this was Vassilis Toliopoulos, who ultimately did not follow the team on the trip to the Italian city due to severe stomach problems. Although he was at the airport with his teammates, he had to leave one by one.

This is a long absence that forces Giannis Kastritis to readjust the data in the rotation, as it is a regional player who has recorded 11.6 points, 1.9 rebounds and 2.7 assists so far in the EuroCup.
