BARCELONA — After nine weeks and 108 games, the final session of the Euroleague’s regular season tipped off with four Top 16 slots still empty, and eight teams vying to fill them.
In Group B, Zalgiris tucked Ty Lawson and their organizational turmoil under the rug long enough to end Zagreb’s season with an 87-76 victory, while Bamberg faltered in Athens, losing to Panathinaikos 71-66.
And in Group C, Olimpia Milano silenced Partizan’s notoriously noisy home fans as they gobbled up that fourth and final ticket in Pionir Arena by a final score of 72-66.
So with the Top 16 draw still days away and the next Euroleague game scheduled for January 18, some premature congratulations are in order for 10 exceptional individuals.
Ladies and gentlemen: your Regular Season All-Euroleague teams.
