Herbalife Gran Canaria Las Palmas

They say that good things arrive to those who know how to wait. Well, it certainly did for Herbalife Gran Canaria Las Palmas, a first-time Eurocup finalist, at last, in its ninth season in the competition. Since 2003-04, the Spanish club from the Canary Islands had only missed the 2005-06, 2012-13 and 2013-14 seasons, but it has been this campaign when, with bench legend Aito Garcia Reneses at the helm, Gran Canaria has stormed into the final stage of the Eurocup. Gran Canaria boasts an impressive record this season with 21 wins and just a single loss on the road. The roster is comprised of seasoned players like Albert Oliver, Brad Newley, Txemi Urtasun and Levon Kendall, who combine perfectly with the talent of lesser-known players who have had breakout seasons, like Walter Tavares, Kyle Kuric and Tomas Bellas. Only two players have appeared all 22 games: Oliver and Kuric, and Aito relied on a consistent starting five with Bellas, Kuric, Newley, Euliis Baez and Tavares. Read more here.
