Going into the 14th and final week of play in European basketball's toughest group ever, one player has proved absolutely vital to his team having already survived to reach the playoffs. For his consistent excellence as Laboral Kutxa Vitoria Gasteiz clinched at least second place in Top 16 Group F during March, veteran center Ioannis Bourousis has been named the Turkish Airlines Euroleague's monthly MVP for the first time in his career. Despite facing a killer March schedule - with four teams that won six of the last 10 Euroleague titles plus the reigning Eurocup champion - Laboral matched the group's best record for the month and Bourousis had everything to do with it.
ONE TEAM IN ATHENS
Just blocks away from the ancient Panathenaic Stadium, home of the first modern Olympic Games, the stars from the past, present and future of two Greek basketball institutions – great archrivals Olympiacos Piraeus and Panathinaikos Athens – gathered for an exhibition game and a special One Team training session to celebrate the arrival of the One Team - Stay in the Game initiative.
USUAL SUSPECTS LAST ROUND
The forces of order have managed to keep crime across the continent at lower rates week after week. However, somehow, a group of The Usual Suspects still has managed to engage in their obscure activities. They have been brought to the precinct downtown for questioning, so pay attention and help discover the liar!
