so I've been a little quiet, but this year instead of having 1 thread for each week, I'll just put them here and update the title of the thread with the new week and it's post #.

I hope to get things rolling for next week.

So I can write anything bout Euroleague here?

Efes Pilsen 35 : Panionios 36 Half Time

The match is very interesting, it's very balanced but IMO it is way too bustling.
Both teams are playing full court defense...and very fast basketball (very unusual for Efes Pilsen). I hope that Efes will win this match!

Week 9 provided some of the biggest thrills of the season so far as 12 games produced three group winners and two more Top 16 qualifying teams. Five games were won by visitors, the highest-scoring quarter ever was tied, two teams topped the 100-point mark and the league's top scorer reached a new career-high. In Group A, Unicaja outlasted Cibona 76-77 on the road to move into first place with a 7-2 mark as Boniface Ndong posted a double-double. Maccabi Electra defeated Olympiacos 96-83 to join the Reds in second at 6-3. Carlos Arroyo led five Maccabi scorers in double figures with 20 points. Also, no winless teams are left in the competition after Le Mans topped Air Avellino 92-88. In Group B, Regal FC Barcelona bested Asseco Prokom 64-76 to clinch first place behind Ersan Ilyasova's double-double. Then Terrell McIntrye peppered the nets for 21 points as Montepaschi overcame Panathinaikos 82-77 to move into second place. The Italian champs will be second in the group if they win or if the Greens lose next week. With a record-tying 41-point fourth quarter, Zalgiris downed SLUC Nancy 105-94 to keep its Top 16 options alive. Jonas Maciulis hit 5 three-pointers en route to a career-best 29 points for Zalgiris. In Group C, Tau Ceramica beat Lottomatica Roma 96-103 in overtime to clinch first place as Igor Rakocevic made 12 for 12 free throws among a career-high 31 points. Fenerbahce Ulker routed Union Olimpija 70-90 to punch its ticket to the Top 16 as Omer Onan scored a season-high 20 points, one short of his career high. The group's last Top 16 berth titled toward Alba Berlin, which edged DKV Joventut 75-79 in a thriller as Immanuel McElroy shined with 26 points. Defending champ CSKA Moscow burned Efes Pilsen 55-74 on the road behind a magnificent shooting effort from Trajan Langdon and later wrapped up first place in Group D after Armani Jeans Milano defeated Real Madrid 70-61 behind Marco Mordente's 23 points. Madrid nevertheless, climbed into the Top 16 thanks to Efes's loss. In the same group, Partizan blasted Panionios on Telecoms 80-57 to help its Top 16 hopes thanks to a double-double from teenager Jan Vesely. With one week left in the regular season, three groups have four Top 16 berths to settle, while the only full one Group A, still has to decide first place.

01-21-2009, 01:03 AM
the groups for the Top 16 are set


I hope to cover the Top 16 better than I did the start of the season

01-24-2009, 07:46 PM
I think that is just a regular ACB league game

01-25-2009, 09:30 AM
I hope my team panathinaikos can play better than what they have up until now but I somehow don't see that happening. We are playing terribly right now both on the greek leauge and the euroleague and I don't see us going to the F4 this year unfortunately.

at least you can be happy knowing that Olympiacos might not go too far either

EL Top 16 Week 1 Game Center (scores and recaps)

Maccabi, btw, crushed Alba Berlin.... good thing I only watched the 1st half

02-04-2009, 10:09 PM
Lopez is out for 3 weeks (Real Madrid), and Jaka Lakovic may miss Thursdays game... I still think Barcelona & Real will be tough matches for Maccabi

02-05-2009, 04:50 PM
well, of course Maccabi wasn't going to win

Barcelona is one of the best teams in Europe

02-06-2009, 12:28 AM
why don't you play for the bucks? help their playoff chances

02-27-2009, 10:49 AM
I havent been really following lately (and I've been inactive for a majority of 4 weeks).... but I hope to be able to do more coverage on the Final Four when it comes in May

until then I'll be in and out
