Valencia is Eurocup king!!!


valenciaPower Electronics Valencia is the Eurocup champion for the second time in club history. Power Electronics became the second club to lift the Eurocup trophy twice on Sunday when it beat Alba Berlin 44-67 in the title game in Vitoria, Spain. With the victory, Valencia earned the right to play in the 2010-11 Euroleague. Valencia, the competition's original champion back in 2003, set a new Eurocup final record by allowing just 22 points in the first half. Pushed by a sea a orange and purple fans, Valencia used outstanding defense to seal the outcome long before the final buzzer and denied Alba the chance to win its first European club title since 1995. Matt Nielsen was named Eurocup Finals MVP and his frontcourt mate, Kosta Perovic, paced the winners with 17 points. Head coach Neven Spahija, who has lifted five different domestic league trophies all over the continent and reached the ULEB Cup final in 2003, won his first European title - just like every player on his team's roster. Thomas Kelati added 13 points and Marko Marinovic 12 for the winners.Read more here.
