Unicaja Malaga is the 2016-17 7DAYS EuroCup champion! Unicaja won its first trophy of any kind in 11 years with a stunning come-from-behind victory over Valencia Basket 58-63 in front of a sellout crowd at Fuente de San Luis. The visitors used a 0-18 fourth-quarter charge to come back from a 13-point deficit. Unicaja’s defense held Valencia to just 4 fourth-quarter points. The win gives Unicaja a spot in the 2017-18n Turkish Airlines EuroLeague, too. Homegrown guard Alberto Diaz paced Unicaja with 12 points and was chosen as MVP of the finals. Bojan Dubljevic paced Valencia with 16 points. Valencia outrebounded Unicaja 36-26, including 15 offensive boards, but suffered a poor shooting night, making just 12 of 33 two-point shots (36.4%) and 9 of 36 threes (25%). Unicaja claimed its first continental title in almost 16 years – since winning the Korac Cup title in 2001 – and became the fourth Spanish team to lift the trophy. Joan Plaza became the third coach to win multiple EuroCup titles.
