Valencia to face Berlin for Eurocup title

Valencia will face Berlin in the final of basketball's Eurocup after they earned solid semi-final victories over Panellinios and Bilbao at finals weekend in Vitoria-Gasteiz.


Adam Chubb starred for Berlin with a season-high 27 points as they beat local team Bilbao 77-70, cheered on by 55 travelling fans who had made the 24-hour drive from central Germany after volcanic ash grounded flights across the continent.

In the other semi-final Valencia held off a resurgent Panellinos to make the final with a 92-80 victory.

Valencia were in control as they led 53-39 at half-time and 71-58 in the second half, but Panellinos fought back to close the gap to 77-71 with four minutes left.

Yet Matt Nielsen landed two late three-pointers to secure the victory.
