Facundo Campazzo was absolutely sensational for Real Madrid against Baskonia. He touched the roof with a 17 point performance, a showing which entailed 2 assists and 5 rebounds as well to see the point guard become a must have pick for us.
At a measly 7 credits, Jaycee Carroll offers sublime value in our side. The Real Madrid shooting guard can not only drop his triples but can layup the ball for his counterparts as well.
His ability to open the zone and shoot the three pointers from the corners saw him deliver 8 points against Lyon to make Klemen Prepelic the first pick from Valencia.
Partnering up with him is Nikola Kalinic who delivered 6 points on the day, an enterprising player whose ability to backstep and deliver offhanded shots makes him a dicey name to defend against us.
Top scoring for Valencia in the foregone showdown with 15 points, Derrick Williams makes for a must have pick. The power forward burst onto the stage, shooting baskets with veracity, a showing which offered us the gamut of his skill set, a player crucial to the side’s aspirations this season.
Real Madrid on the other hand will see us opt for the services of Trey Thompkins. He’s crucial to the side’s defensive gameplan, a tensions player whose ability to pull off the boards saw him register 5 rebounds the last time around.
On a day when little went his side’s way, Walter Tavares continued to effortlessly make his presence felt. He’s a versatile player, someone who can canter his way into both the paints to see him be an instant pick for us.
Valencia on the other hand see us indulge in the services of the guile filled Mike Tobey after his reverse scoops saw him pull off 10 points against Lyon.
A sensational 17 point showing in game one sees Facundo be our star player while Williams is the pro player.
