   Batum Takes MVP Honours - Jul 28, 2006






Nicolas Batum (201-F-88) of Le Mans Sarthe Basket (FRA) lived up to the hype surrounding him and won the UMCOR U18 European Championship Most Valuable Player. The much heralded Batum averaged 14 points and 7.9 rebounds and led France's run to the gold medal.
"Most Valuable Player is nice and all," said Batum."
"But really, it is not just about me. It is all about this team. We worked really hard to get here."
The 201 cm forward demonstrated his remarkable athletic ability throughout the tournament with an array of power blocks and thunderous dunks.
In the gold medal game, Batum scored 11 points and sparked a French run in the third quarter by scoring six consecutive points to give his side a lead they would not relinquish.
Batum has been showcasing his talent with Le Mans in the French League. He has some time with the senior team and is expected to be a part of their roster next season.
"Really I haven't proven anything in my career yet," confessed Batum.
"There is a lot more I want to do."
The following players were selected to the All-tournament team:
Zygimantas Janavicius (188-G-89) of Alytus Alita (LTU)
Martynas Gecevicius (193-G-88) of Sakalai Vilnius (LTU)
Nicolas Batum (201-F-88) of Le Mans Sarthe Basket (FRA)

After looking dead in the water following three consecutive losses, France defeated Lithuania 77-72 in the title game and lifted the UMCOR U18 European Championship gold medal. As Spanish players celebrated their 92-83 bronze medal game victory over Turkey at center court, a misty eyed Marc Rubio pointed toward heaven to pay tribute to his fallen friend, Guillem Raventos. With 8-25 run in the first quarter, Serbia & Montenegro never look back from there. Russia and Croatia contribute a so furious and close game to us, in the 4:10 of the fourth quarter, they score 77-77. With the 8-5 run for the last game, Russia beat Croatia. D'Ercole's 3PtsFG in the last 3 second help Italy reverse the score. Ukraine lost their last game with Iceland because of the absence of Vil'khovets'kyy.
