BallinEurope usually hears from Adi Micinic of Romania-based Total Baschet at this time of year as the country’s league winds up its season. Adi told us last month about possibly the hidden play of the entire tournament there, a beyond-controversial call which ultimately may have stolen CSU Asesoft Ploiești a semi-final win and continued them onto the winner’s stand again. Today, he provides recaps of the final round and the third-place series which ended quite familiarly…
CSU Asesoft Ploiești are the Romanian champions for the nine time in league history, wrapping up the series against BC Mureș four games to two in a best-of-seven set.
Ploiești’s Alhaji Mohammed, younger brother of the Chicago Bulls’ Nazr Mohammed, scored 38 points in the decisive game six played in Brazi which finished with the score 83-76. Vaidotas Peciukas replied with 23 points for Mureș.
Interestingly, the defense of CSU Ploiești – and maybe the offense of BC Mureș – was the deciding factor in the finals. When BC Mureș scored over 80 points during this series, they won.
