Joventut, team captain Ventura pen extension
Ventura (1.91 meters, 30 years old) signed the contract on his 30th birthday. The shooting guard has averaged 3.7 points in 14 games for the club this season. He scored a career-high 16 points last week in Round 17 to lead Joventut to victory over Slask Wroclaw. Joventut finished the regular season with the best record in the competition, 12-4, and will face ratiopharm Ulm in the eighthfinals.
"I am very happy that I get to stay home," Ventura said. "I will keep fighting for these colors and I want to finish the year accomplishing something big. When I got here, I was just a kid who wanted to play basketball, but a lot of time has passed and I achieved things I never imagined. Today is a happy day and I want to thank the fans for their support during all these years."
