TAU Baskonia, new champion of Spanish league

TAU Baskonia finally got his prize after a long season in which they played three finals in all the competitions they played. Mickeal was the MVP of the finals, and Neven Spahija got his first title in his first season coaching in Spain.

After three games of absolute dominance over their rival, AXA FC Barcelona, TAU Baskonia got their second title of ACB. This year, the basque team had played very regularly, playing the final of King's Cup, Final Four in Madrid and now ACB's finals, and they finally got their prize.

An easy way of playing, with Splitter and Mickeal as killers inside and outside the zone, and great defense, making Lakovic, Acker and Ilyasova look like poor versions of themselves, helped the vitorians to reach the final glory. Good game for Rakocevic and Teletovic too, with a great pace of the game by Pablo Prigioni.

The final result was 76-61, with a great second part played by the team of Neven Spahija, who in his first year in Spain, captured the main title. He gave no option to their rival coach, Xavi Pascual, in all three matches. Despite this loss, is expected that the young coach from Barcelona will stay next season too.

Now the season is over, there is a great taste in the mouth of all fans from Vitoria, since their team not only won the title, but also will have their main star, Tiago Splitter, playing next season for them too.
