The Adidas Media Game is a tradition at the Turkish Airlines EuroLeague Final Four. While the scribes who report on the games all season long revel in the chance to lace up their sneakers and compete at Zalgirio Arena on the same floor that will crown a continental crown the following day, the game is played before closed doors and their adoring fans are unable to follow.
Fortunately, we sent a scout to watch the game and share his thoughts on what became a one-sided game in which the Blue Team, coached by Sofoklis Schortsanitis, overpowered Coach Jonas Kazlauskas's White Team 27-42.
Dora Panteli is a beast on the boards and has excellent court vision, dishing a team-high 4 assists. She should not be underestimated.
Coach Schortsanitis's coaching methods may be unorthodox, but you cannot argue with the result. After leading the Blue Team to a convincing win, Big Sofo may be ready for a promotion.
