unicaja malaga

Unicaja Malaga is the 2016-17 7DAYS EuroCup champion! Unicaja won its first trophy of any kind in 11 years with a stunning come-from-behind victory over Valencia Basket 58-63 in front of a sellout crowd at Fuente de San Luis. The visitors used a 0-18 fourth-quarter charge to come back from a 13-point deficit. Unicaja’s defense held Valencia to just 4 fourth-quarter points. Homegrown guard Alberto Diaz paced Unicaja with 12 points and Jamar Smith added 10. Bojan Dubljevic paced Valencia with 16 points. Valencia outrebounded Unicaja 36-26, including 15 offensive boards, but suffered a poor shooting night, making just 12 of 33 two-point shots (36.4%) and 9 of 36 threes (25%). By winning, Unicaja became the first EuroCup newcomer to win the competition since Hapoel Jerusalem did so in 2004. Read more here.

April 5, 2017 - Game 3

It all comes down to one game, a showdown that will determine the 2016-17 season champion of the 7DAYS EuroCup. Valencia Basket and Unicaja Malaga exchanged home wins in the first two games of the finals, so best-of-three series is tied at 1-1. Now, Valencia hosts Game 3 at Fuente de San Luis Pavilion on Wednesday at 20:30 CET because it earned the right to play at home by having the best overall record in the Top 16. Unicaja has the chance to lift its first title of any kind since winning the Spanish League crown in 2006. It would also be the club's second European trophy after winning the Korac Cup in 2001. Valencia is aiming for its fourth EuroCup title after conquering the competition in 2003, 2010 and 2014. Unicaja has already eliminated FC Bayern Munich and Lokomotiv Kuban without having home-court advantage in any series since the Top 16. Read more here.

Here is the schedule for Game 3:

Valencia Basket vs. Unicaja Malaga 58-63

March 31, 2017 - Game 2

The 7DAYS EuroCup Finals have arrived to Malaga, Spain, where the Martin Carpena Sports Palace will be the stage for Game 2 in the best-of-three series. Valencia had a 1-0 lead in the series after winning a true battle on its home court, but now Unicaja that advantage in Game 2, with over 10,000 fans expected to try to help keep their team alive in the competition. If Unicaja wins, Valencia will host Game 1 at Fuente De San Luis on Wednesday, April 5. Valencia took a 68-62 win in Game 1, making history in many ways. Not one, but two of its players broke the EuroCup's all-time scoring record.

Here is the schedule for Game 2:

Unicaja Malaga vs. Valencia Basket 79-71

March 28, 2017 - Game 1

The 7DAYS EuroCup Finals starts at Fuente De San Luis with Game 1 of the best-of-three title series on Tuesday at 20:30 CET. Unicaja can become the first newcomer to win the EuroCup since Hapoel Jerusalem lifted the trophy in 2004. Valencia is in its fifth EuroCup final, an all-time record, and looks for its fourth title, which would be twice as much as any other team. It will be a very special series for Valencia team captain Rafa Martinez, who already ranks first in three-pointers made all time in the EuroCup, but can now beat several more records in the finals. First, Martinez needs two appearances to rank first in games played: Vladimir Veremeenko took part in 130 games but Martinez is right behind at 129. If the finals goes to three games and Martinez starts them all, he will be the first player to reach 100 in that category.

Here is the schedule for Game 1:

Valencia Basket vs. Unicaja Malaga 68-62
