   Dynamo beat Aris! - Apr. 12, 2006

Aris lost with Dynamo 60:73 (18:19, 10:18, 17:11, 15:25). The Russian team qualified automaticially to the Euroleague next season.
Aris - Dynamo 60:73
Aris: Brewer 7, Padius 6, Koul 0, Taylor 0, Castle 17, Sigalas 10, Wilkinson 7, Stergiou 3.
Dynamo: Popovic 17, Douglas 17, Chatman 15, Domani 5, Fotsis 4, Kubrakov 3, Papadopoulos 12, Mottola 0.
An astonishing game with unofficial triple double figures from Lazaros Papadopoulos (210-C-80) beat the team of Aris and the nearly 6000 "Arians" who were outstanding (probably the best fans in the world!) The Greek center was amazing and it's only unfair that Ruben Douglas (193-G-79, college: N.Mexico) was voted as an MVP. Eurobasket has the opinion that the Greek center was the real MVP of the game since he was able to knock down his three major opponents (Ryan Stack (212-F/C-75, agency: Interperformances, college: S.Carolina), Wilkinson and Haritopoulos) the Greek Center scored 12 points dashed down 12 rebounds and won 12 fouls, kicking out quite early the very promising and very dangerous for his team, power forward Haritopoulos (he only played 13 minutes) and blocking at least three times Stack and Wilkinson, not to mentioned the very good Defence over both the American Centers of Aris. On the other hand Aris had a disappointing Brewer who scored 7 points and sometimes seems that he was playing in an American neighbourhood (street basketball, run and gun), he was running and shooting without a system or even some discipline in his game, poor organisational skills, lost the ball at least five times, bad defence, low morale and really the fatal player for the Greek team, Brewer's poor performance followed by the very unsteady (last night) game of Padius and Stack who ended the game with 6 and 10 points but lost almost all the air battles by the Greek super star Papadopoulos . Two players only played very well for the Thesaloniki team, the two veterans who were able to make the 5,650 Arians that they could really change the fade of the last night's game, these were no others than the captain of the team Sigalas (who even played defence over Papadopoulos at some stage!!) and the very good Castle, these two players believed that they could "kill the Russian monster" but their team-mates betray them. The American (with Bosnian passport) guard scored 17 points and the Greek veteran scored 10 but he have done an amazing amount of "dirty job"he stole the ball three times played good defence at the beginning of the second half over the (up to that moment perfect) Popovic (the Serbian actually scored 11 unanswered points at the end of the second quarter with 100% stats and turn the game up side down) Sigalas try and gave his best to win the Russians but him and Castle were all alone. On the other hand the Panama official MVP, Ruben Douglas scored 17 points and kill all the Greek hopes with his deadly three pointers and his perfection in shooting from the arc, even though he shoot most of the times without defence as all the Greek defence was over Papadopoulos, the Greek center sometimes had to come across three and four Arians who were ready to defence. The quarters of the game were 19-18, 28-37, 45-48, and 60-73.
The Russian team qualified automatically to the Euroleague next season, unfortunately the team of Thesaloniki with the incredible fans will remain in the ULEB Cup unless...

  Aris BSA and Dynamo Moscow will be fighting for the Title! - Mar. 28, 2006

ULEB Cup fans, say hello to the finalists for the 2005-06 season: Aris Thessaloniki and Dynamo Moscow! After clutch victories in their second and last semifinal games on Tuesday night, those two teams will meet in the ULEB Cup title game in Charleroi, Belgium on April 11, with the winner not only lifting a new trophy, but winning the right to join the Euroleague next season. In Tuesday's first game at home in Moscow, Dynamo was a resounding 92-81 winner over visiting Hapoel Jerusalem, the competition's champ two seasons ago, for a 2-0 series sweep. Mire Chatman (187-G-78, agency: Higher Vision Sports, college: UTPA) led Dynamo to victory with 27 points, while Ruben Douglas (193-G-79, college: N.Mexico) added 21 and Dmitry Domani 19. For Hapoel, regular season MVP Mario Austin (206-F/C-82, college: Mississippi St.) poured in 34 points, tied for the second-most ever in a ULEB

Cup elimination round game. Dynamo scored 54 points and led by as many as 17 in the first half. Hapoel trimmed that difference to 68-65 before Dynamo's 13-1 bridging the final two quarters broke the game open.
In Tuesday's second semifinal, at sold-out Alexandrio Melathron arena in Thessaloniki, Greece, host Aris Thessaloniki rallied to beat Hemofarm 82-77 on Terrell Castle (182-G-72, agency: Court Side, college: Nicholls St.) 's running jumper with 1.6 seconds left after the ball danced around the rim. Since Hemofarm had won their first game 74-71, Castle's shot was the series winner. Corey Brewer (188-G-75, agency: Passing Lane, college: Oklahoma) led the winners with 25 points, while Ryan Stack (212-F/C-75, agency: Interperformances, college: S.Carolina) added 20. Hemofarm, which lost in the semifinals for a second straight season, got 19 points from Rashard Wright. Either Aris Thessaloniki or Dynamo will become ULEB Cup champion on April 11, so follow the Road to Charleroi, with!

   Dynamo 84 - Jerusalem 83 in first leg. - Mar. 22, 2006 - by Avi Trachtman

Hapoel Jerusalem recieved some very bad news as the day started. The team's sponsor Arkady Gaydmak, said he might leave the team, and taking most of the money with him. All through the day there were negotiations with Gaydmak, and just towards the beginning of the game, Gaydmak decided he will probably stay after all.
And so Hapoel Jerusalem, with many question marks and doubts, played the team which is probably the strongest this year in the ULEB Cup, Russia's Dynamo Moscow. The game really wasn't that good, and both teams displayed three players each in top form and little else. The game started with Jerusalem using their home court advantage, with Matan Naor scoring the first points of the game for Hapoel and the last for him in the game, but especially with Horace Jenkins (186-G-74, college: William Paterson) and Roger Mason (196-G/F-80, agency: Priority Sports, college: Virginia), both put Jerusalem 20-9 ahead, while the only one who was able to make points on the Russian team was Greek Antonis Fotsis (210-F-81). But with 4 minutes to go in the quarter, it was time for Mire Chatman (187-G-78, agency: Higher Vision Sports, college: UTPA) and Papadopoulos, perhaps the two best european players in their positions, making the great come back and handing the 1 point lead to dynamo as the quarter ended. Dynamo continued their good form, and with Mire Chatman (187-G-78, agency: Higher Vision Sports, college: UTPA) and Antonis Fotsis (210-F-81) grabbed a 7 point lead. But this game was meant to be close, and with a 3-pointer by Mario Austin (206-F/C-82, college: Mississippi St.) and a coast to coast by Roger Mason (196-G/F-80, agency: Priority Sports, college: Virginia), Jerusalem came back and had the lead once again. Horace Jenkins (186-G-74, college: William Paterson) made it 43-39 for Hapoel just before Mire Chatman (187-G-78, agency: Higher Vision Sports, college: UTPA) had two points from the foul line to make it 43-41 at half time.
Hapoel were good right at the start of the second half. Douglas who had a terrible game (0-11 fg) scored twice from the line, and yet Hapoel kept their small lead deep into the last three minutes of the quarter. But then Papadoupolos showed his unstoppable moves, and Mire Chatman (187-G-78, agency: Higher Vision Sports, college: UTPA) had a 3-pointer which gave Dynamo the lead once again as the third quarter ended 61-59, one of the main reasons for this was the fact that Mario Mario Austin (206-F/C-82, college: Mississippi St.) was benched with 4 fouls despite having a tremendous game. Dynamo usually kept their lead in the final quarter, but the game remained close, and Jerusalem never let go. Douglas missed repetedly, but Mire Chatman (187-G-78, agency: Higher Vision Sports, college: UTPA) and Antonis Fotsis (210-F-81) did the job for Moscow. But above all it was the huge greek center Papadouplos who shined, Jerusalem just couldn't stop his basic move, and all they could do was out the ball in  Horace Jenkins (186-G-74, college: William Paterson)'s hand and let him do the trick. He didn't do bad and kept Jerusalem in the game with 12 points in the last quarter, but Dumany gave the victory to his team with a foul shot, although he missed one which could have put Dynamo two points ahead.
Now Jerusalem had to go to cold moscow and steal a win against a better team. Miracles have been known to happen, but will they be able to do their charm. Only next week will tell.

Hapoel Jerusalem: Horace Jenkins (186-G-74, college: William Paterson) 24; Mario Austin (206-F/C-82, college: Mississippi St.) 21, 17 rebounds; Roger Mason (196-G/F-80, agency: Priority Sports, college: Virginia) 19; Tapiro 9; Markovich 6, 4 reb; Naor 3; Slay 2; Kozikaro 1.
Dynamo Moscow: Lazaros Papadopoulos (210-C-80) 25, 8 reb; Mire Chatman (187-G-78, agency: Higher Vision Sports, college: UTPA) 23, 8 reb; Antonis Fotsis (210-F-81) 21, 6 reb, 4 ass; Dumany 11; Douglas 4
