Ricard Rubio (192-G-90) had a performance for the ages as Spain defeated Russia 110-106 in a double overtime thriller in the gold medal game of the Termosteps U16 European Championship in Spain.
Rubio, the tournament’s Most Valuable Player, tallied the highest total in FIBA Europe youth competition play this summer with an astounding 51 points, three of which came on a buzzer-beating three-pointer which sent the game into overtime.
The 192-cm Rubio also recorded his third triple double of the competition by tallying 24 rebounds and 12 assists. He was three steals shy of a quadruple double as he finished with seven.
The 15-year-old point guard had already collected two triple-doubles in helping Spain reach the final, including one in the semis against Croatia.
Rubio saved perhaps his best performance for the final though as he scored more than four times as many points as his next-best team-mate while handing out all but five of Spain's assists.
More than his individual numbers, Rubio's clutch performance helped Spain lift the gold medal. He scored 14 of the 51 in the two overtime sessions not to mention his end of regulation heroics.
After Teymuraz Babunashvili buried a three-pointer to give Russia an 87- 84 lead with two seconds to go in regulation, Rubio kept his team’s gold medal hopes alive by burying a three of his own as the regulation buzzer sounded, tying the game at 87 and sending the contest into overtime.
It was the second time in the final seconds of the game that Rubio tied the game up for Spain.
After Boris Sprygin hit jumper with six seconds left to put Russia up 84-82, Rubio scored on a driving lay-up to the game at 84 with four seconds remaining.
In the first overtime, Rubio scored six points, including a pair of free-throws with 37 seconds left which tied the game at 99.
Following a Russia turnover, Rubio had a chance to win the game at the final buzzer, but his jump shot rimmed out forcing a second overtime.
Spain scored the first six points in double overtime on a jumper and lay-up from Rubio and a Julio Sosa basket to go ahead 105-99 with just over three minutes to go.
Russia fought back to 105-104, but Rubio broke their momentum by knocking down a jumper to give Spain a 107-104 advantage at the 2:29 mark.
The game would turn into a free-throw shooting contest over the final minute of play, with Russia hit 2-of-4 and Spain converting 3-of-4.
Fittingly, Rubio would ultimately seal the game for Spain by hitting a pair frm the charity stripe with 17 seconds left put Spain up four, 110-106.
Russia failed to score on their ensuing possession and Spain would run the clock out and go on to celebrate their gold medal game triumph in front of approximately 3,000 of their Spanish fans.
Aside from Rubio, Spain only had two other players make double-figures, with Julio Sosa scoring 12 points and Daniel Perez Otero adding 11.
Babunashvili paced his side with 28 points, while Sprygin added 18 points and nine rebounds.
Sergey Okrasinskiy added 17 and six and Aleksandr Karpukhin 17 and three.
