2011 EuroChallenge: KRKA Novo Mesto of Slovenia brings the trophy back home - May 1, 2011

It was a lounge atmosphere at the Sleuyter Arena as only 2000 people showed up to attend the 2011 EuroChallenge Final. Both teams, Lokomotiv Kuban and KRKA Novo Mesto, played on a good rhythm and none of both was really dominating in the fist minutes of the game. Jeremiah Massey (202-F-82, college: Kansas St.) hit a three-point shot to give his Spartak team the lead 4-3 but the tough KRKA defense made the difference afterwards. After several fastbreaks, KRKA Novo Mesto was ahead 6-12 with 4:57 remaining in the first quarter when Coach Kestutis Kemzura took a first important time-out. A crucial one indeed as his team tied the game later on at 14-14 after two easy baskets by Michael Wilkinson (204-F-81, agency: Interperformances, college: Wisconsin) and a great three by Lionel Chalmers (184-G-80, college: Xavier). After Aleksandar Dzikic's time-out for KRKA, Goran Jeretin (192-G-79, agency: Beo Basket) and Sergey Toporov (197-F-81) of Lokomotiv kept giving assists to Michael Wilkinson who was well present underneath the basket to score. A last three-pointer at the last second of the first quarter even gave Lokomotiv a lead by 2 points: 20-18.

Christopher Booker (208-F/C-81, agency: Lanshire Group, college: Purdue), the only non-European player of KRKA Novo Mesto, had done a good job in the first quarter and kept doing so in the beginning of the second one. He and young Slovenian talent Zoran Dragic (196-G-89) put their team in front: 20-26. Dragic agains grabbed an important rebound to make 22-30. The game turned out to be very spectacular: Alando Tucker on the Lokomotiv side (alley oop) and Christopher Booker on the KRKA side (two shots from downtown). After 28-35, the Russian team was again able to speed up and come back at 34-35. Well led by Dusan Djordjevic (195-G-83, agency: Beo Basket), KRKA re-took one larger positive margin at 34-41 but Lokomotiv on a last rush in the first half avoided a large deficit. The scoreboard showed 41-43 at the half. A big difference compared with what happened Friday night, much more points came from the bench this time for Lokomotiv: 21 on the whole. Christopher Booker of KRKA was the best scorer with 13 points in this game at half-time.

Goran Ikonic (196-G-80), the hero of Friday night, hit two three-pointers in a row to put his KRKA team ahead: 43-49. At the middle of the third quarter, the scoreboard showed 50-51. Goran Ikonic of KRKA had been forcing too many shots and the game got physically tougher and the two teams were more agressive. Lokomotiv's key players Michael Wilkinson and Goran Jeretin even gave a 55-54 lead to their team. It was an almost perfect game as no team was willing to give up and kept scoring spectacular baskets. Booker came back on the floor for KRKA but despite his great efforts as well as the ones of Zoran Dragic and Edo Muric (202-F-91), Lokomotiv had a larger lead at the end of the third quarter: 65-61.

A time-out for KRKA at 67-63 in the beginning of the last quarter proves that it was a very strategic game played by both teams. Zoran Dragic, young brother of NBA Houston Rockets' Goran Dragic (194-G-86), kept his team alive at 69-65 with 6:30 left in this final game. Michael Wilkinson, very efficient, gave then Lokomotiv the right to be very hopeful: 72-65 to enter the moneytime. A big three by Surovtsev of Lokomotiv was followed by one on the other side: 75-70 by Booker from long range indeed. A few seconds later, Ikonic even made 75-72 on an uneasy crucial lay-up with 3:29 left on the clock. Lokomotiv kept losing balls and turning the ball over under the Slovenian pressure and KRKA was again in front at 75-76 (Booker and Pavic inside). Dragic first and Djordjevic on a three-pointer made 75-81 with 1:04 remaining on the clock. One last time-out and last efforts by Lokomotiv did not change anything, KRKA Novo Mesto is definitely the 2011 FIBA EuroChallenge title winner thanks to a last impressive 16-0 scoring run. 77-83 is the final score! The Slovenians can cut the net as they will bring the trophy back home.

Goran Ikonic was voted MVP of the 2011 EuroChallenge Final Four.

Best scorers for Lokomotiv Kuban: Michael Wilkinson 21, Alando Tucker 10, Jeremiah Massey 11.
Best scorers for Krka Novo Mesto: Christopher Booker 20, Zoran Dragic 12, Smiljan Pavic 13, Dusan Djordjevic 8, Goran Ikonic 12.
