  Euroleague Championship day, CSKA prevails as the new kings - Apr. 30, 2006 - by Darryl Reshaw
The third place game was between the two ACB powers Tau and Barcelona.
The arena was partially filled in the first half because most of the ticket holders were Maccabi fans who arrived later for the big game.
Both of these teams were very familiar with each other tactics.
Tau raced out to an early 26-19 lead behind the play of Travis Hansen (198-G/F-78, college: BYU) despite Luis Scola picking up two early fouls in the opening period.
Botsy Thorton paced Barcelona with 8 points in the first quarter.
In the second quarter the inside play of Tau was superior as Drobnjak muscled a few inside baskets.
Tau took a 47-36 halftime lead into the locker room as Travis Hansen (198-G/F-78, college: BYU) continued to stroke the deep ball with 15 first half points.
In the third quarter Gregor Fucka (214-C-71, agency: Interperformances) and Navaro fueled a Barcelona comeback as they picked up their intensity.
Navaro was unstoppable in the last five minutes as Barcelona knotted the score 60-60 as quarter ended.
In the fourth quarter it was a back and forth battle but every time Barcelona made a run the inside rebounding and presence was too much for the reds.
Tau won the battle of the ACB heavyweights for the third place in the Euroleague.
The atmosphere for the Euroleague championship game was incredible as the Maccabi fans packed the Sazka arena in Prague.
The fans for CSKA did not have a chance as the were drowned out by the sheer force of numbers.
This was like a home game for the Maccabi squad.
As you walked around the arena you could see who's who in basketball featuring many present and past basketball figures from both sides of the water.
The game started with a lot of nervous energy from both sides but Maccabi benefited from the energy of the pro home crowd.
The fans were so loud that the players could not hear each other.
The quarter ended in a 18-18 draw as both teams to struggled to find their offensive flow.
At the end of the second quarter CSKA picked up their defense and Maccabi never got any offense going as they made a lot of turnovers which resulted in easy baskets for CSKA.
The Moscow team strolled into the halftime break with a 35-30 as a result of great team defense.
In the third quarter both teams traded blow for blow and Maccabi made a small run to tie up the score with two minutes remaining.
David Vanterpool (195-G/F-73, college: St.Bonaventure) lead all scorers with 14 points at the end of the third period as CSKA held a 49-48 advantage.
Maccabi started the forth quarter with two bad possessions and CSKA Moscow started with two 3 point shots.
Both teams then heated up after exchanging 3 point baskets by Landon, Parker and Solomon.
CSKA managed to always have an answer by hitting big shots to keep a slim margin and never trailed but once in the second half.
All night CSKA just had Maccabi's number by hitting timely perimeter shots and forcing Maccabi in mistakes.
Theodoros Papaloukas (200-G-77) controlled the tempo for CSKA very well and was the offensive catalyst for the Moscow team.
CSKA managed to hold off Maccabi to gain an impressive 73-69 victory and are the Euroleague champions for 2006.
The loss stop Maccabi's chance to three peat Europe's biggest basketball event and was CSKA first title since 1971.
Theo Papaloukas after scoring 18 points and handing out 7 assists was name the games MVP with his outstanding play.
Even in defeat the large Maccabi fan base showed great sportsmanship by cheering and applauding the newly crowned Euroleague champions from Moscow.

  Euroleague Final Four in Prague - Semifinals - Apr. 28, 2006 - by Darryl Reshaw
The city of Prague is beautiful and reminiscent of the major capitals in eastern Europe.
Most of the top basketball executives and NBA scouts were seen walking around the center of the city.
On the way to the arena most of the scouts and executives took the subway which was an adventure.
In the arena you could see mostly thousands of screaming Maccabi fans.
The defending champs raced to a seven point lead in the first quarter with a definite home court advantage as the yellows fans raise the noise barometer in the arena.
Anthony Parker (196-G/F-75, college: Bradley) killed Tau Victoria with his outside shooting and smooth drives to the basket with 19 first half points.
Maccabi opened up a thirty point lead at one point in the third quarter due to the incredible play of Maceo Baston (206-F-75, agency: Priority Sports, college: Michigan) who did it all.
The Yellows cruised to a easy but very physical 85-70 victory over Louis Scola and company.
In the second contest between CSKA Moscow and Barcelona was more of a contest that started slowly.
However Barcelona seemed a little more disciplined with their offense in the first half of the game.
Barcelona controlled most of the three quarters until Gregor Fucka (214-C-71, agency: Interperformances) picked up a momentum changing technical foul which resulted in six straight points for the Moscow team.
After the momentum change CSKA just gained confidence with the key outside shooting of JR Holden.
With Shammond Williams (187-G-75, college: N.Carolina) in control he led Barcelona back but every time they came too close JR Holden, Smodis or Papaloukas made big plays during the stretch run.
CSKA held on to win a nice comeback victory 84-75 over the deflated Barcelona squad.
In tomorrow's contest CSKA will face Maccabi in the Euroleague Final which will feature over 10,000 screaming yellow fans.
Maccabi will have a chance to make history by winning three straight Euroleague titles and showing their elite status of Europe's most dominant team.

  Maccabi Roll over TAU to clinch a spot in the final:85-70 - Apr. 28, 2006 - by Engin Kehale
Euroleage Semi-finals: Maccabi Tel-Aviv-Tau Ceramica: 85-70 (24-17, 27-15, 22-16, 12-22)
A re-match of the final last year in Prag, but the winner did not change. In front of their fans which painted the arena to yellow, Maccabi reached their third final in a row. When TAU could join the game, it was the end of the first quarter and Maccabi had a 10 point lead, 14-4. With the timeout and Serkan Erdogan's 6 points, Spanish team had a 13-3 run to cut the lead to 3, 17-14. That was the closest they could get. Maccabi dominated both ends of the floor until the end of the game, putting on one of the greatest semi-final performances. Anthony Parker (196-G/F-75, college: Bradley), who scored all of his 19 points in the first half, was the man of the game. Maceo Baston (206-F-75, agency: Priority Sports, college: Michigan) also played with 22 points and 7 rebounds. There is not much to write about the second half, since the deficit grew up to 25 at the end of the third quarter and even TAU players looked like they gave up their hopes. Vitoria team tried to cut the deficit as much as they can, which was the final score: 85-70. Luis Scola (206-F/C-80) scored 17 and Travis Hansen (198-G/F-78, college: BYU) added 15 for TAU. Nikola Vujcic (211-C-78, agency: Interperformances), who recorded the first triple-double in the Euroleague history, had an other memorable game with 16 points, 8 rebounds and 7 assists. Now, the Tel-Aviv team will try to win the third championship in a row with the help of its many spectators turning the arena in Prag to Nokia Arena in Tel-Aviv.
Top scorers: Maccabi: Baston 22, Parker 19 TAU: Scola 19, Hansen 15
