The media at the Eurocup title game voted Matt Nielsen of new champion Power Electronics Valencia the MVP for his inspiration leadership all weekend. He had 7 points, 6 rebounds and 2 assists Sunday, leading his team's record defense!
"It's a great feeling, obviously. I want to congratulate Alba for getting to the final. They did great, so credit to them. I just want to say what a great experience it has been to play with this team. Right from the beginning, it's been a tight-knit team, more than any I've been around in a long time. Teams don't get much closer than this one. It's been such an enjoyable experience. We deserved it and the fans deserved it for helping us all the way. I'm happy it's all gone this way."
"To be MVP is a nice honor, but I really just enjoy this team and consider it a team award. I think we showed yesterday and today that we are a good group with a lot of players doing different things. I think there are eight guys who could have taken the award."
