Real Madrid’s rise to first place in Top 16 Group E was propelled in no small part by dynamic swingman Rudy Fernandez, whose consistent excellence last month has earned him the bwin MVP for February honor. Fernandez started the month with the single best game of his Euroleague career against no less an opponent than archrival FC Barcelona. After subsequent wins over Zalgiris Kaunas and Crvena Zvezda Telekom Belgrade, Fernandez finished February second among all Euroleague players in performance index rating and fifth in scoring, thereby pushing Madrid one giant step closer to a playoff berth!
Crvena Zvezda Telekom won its fifth consecutive title at the ADIDAS NEXT GENERATION TOURNAMENT ‘Marko Ivkovic’ Belgrade, downing archrival Partizan NIS 51-73. Behind MVP Vojislav Stojanovic, who had 10 points, 6 rebounds and 5 assists, Zvezda advanced to the eight-team finals in Madrid, where it will defend its ANGT crown from a year ago.
