Valencia and de Colo are Eurocup kings!

Hello Spurs fans,

Some news from a prospect overseas.

De Colo's Power Electronics Valencia dominated Alba Berlin 44-67 with record-setting defense to win the title and return to the Euroleague next season. Valencia shaved more than 10 points off the title-game record for defense after holding Alba to 22 points in each half. Valencia, the competition's first champ in 2003, also earned a place in the Euroleague for next season. "I think we played almost a perfect defensive game," Valencia coach Neven Spahija said on court. "We have shown here that we can win with defense or with offense!"

De Colo looked pretty good in this final four. In particularly in the semis which was more prolific than the final :

"The first semifinal is history - and made history! Power Electronics Valencia showed some serious long-distance shooting, breaking a finals record with 16 for 28 on the way to a 92-80 victory over Panellinios. Those were the second-most points scored in the finals round, too. Nando De Colo came back from injury to bury 5 three-pointers and score 20 points in the first half. He rested the second to be ready for Sunday's final. "It doesn't matter to us who the opponent in the final," winning coach Neven Spahija said."The better team will be there and we want to be prepared. You don't play a final every day." "
