  Eurocup 2014-15 Semifinals

April 9, 2015 - Semifinals, Game 2 co-MVPs: Tyrese Rice and James Augustine, Khimki

tyrese riceKhimki Moscow Region benefited from a true team effort to defeat Banvit Bandirma 93-89 on Wednesday to earn Eurocup Finals to the Eurocup Finals. Two of the catalysts in that win, blue-collar defensive standout James Augustine and offensive dynamo Tyrese Rice, share the honors as Eurocup Semifinals Game 2 co-MVPs. They each posted performance index ratings of 22, which were the highest in Game 2 of the semifinals of any players on a winning team. Augustine played just under 20 minutes and scored only 8 points, but still made a huge impact with 9 rebounds, 3 assists, 1 steal and 3 blocked shots. Rice made 4 of 8 three-pointers and 4 of 4 free throws en route to a game-high 28 points. The week’s top overall index rating came from Banvit’s Sammy Mejia, who posted a 29 in that same game. Mejia scored 25 points on 5-of-6 three-point shooting. Read more here.

The 2014-15 Eurocup season is down to four would-be champions, all of whom are set and ready for Game 1 of the home-and-away semifinals series this week. The teams that score more points combined in each of the two-game series will advance to the finals. Two of the four clubs are former Eurocup champions; each will face a pair of first-time semifinalists. Adding to the excitement, three coaches remain who have previously won five Eurocup titles between them. Both series openers are scheduled for Wednesday, with return legs being played seven days later.

Here is the schedule for game 1:

Semifinal A

Unics Kazan vs. Herbalife Gran Canaria Las Palmas 70-83

Banvit Bandirma vs. Khimki Moscow Region 83-82

March 31, 2015 - Inside the semifinals

Unics Kazan vs Herbalife Gran Canaria Las Palmas

This semifinals series brings together two of the Eurocups most impressive squads. Gran Canaria is in the semis for the first time despite ranking fifth in all-time Eurocup wins; Unics dreams of a second Eurocup crown after winning it all in 2011.

Winners at the top

When it comes to preparing their teams for big games, both Unics Kazan and Herbalife Gran Canaria Las Palmas are set at the top. Unics coach Evgeny Pashutin has won the Eurocup twice: once with his current team in 2011, and once with his former team, Lokomotiv Kuban, in 2013. Gran Canaria boss Aito Garcia Reneses won the 2008 ULEB Cup with Joventut Badalona. But Eurocup success is just part of their impressive coaching resumes, which are among the best in the game.

Khimki Moscow Region vs. Banvit Bandirma

Former champion Khimki Moscow Region and first-time Eurocup semifinalist Banvit Bandirma not only have different histories, but have taken very different paths on the way to their Eurocup Semifinals clash.

How they got here

Khimki enters semifinals on a nine-game winning streak after sweeping both the eighthfinals, against Zenit St. Petersburg, and the quarterfinals, against then-defending champion Valencia Basket. Khimki has lost only three games during the Eurocup season. It is led by last season's Turkish Airlines Euroleague Final Four MVP Tyrese Rice. Since Round 5 of the regular season, Khimki has lost just once, winning 15 of its last 16 games. Read more here.
