Morris and Maccabi Tel Aviv Finish Second in Euroleague

Thanks to the long layoff between the quarterfinal and semifinal rounds of the Euroleague 2008 tournament, it completely slipped my mind to check back in on the Euroleague Championships after their Final Four two weeks ago.

Terence Morris (1997-2001) and his team, Maccabi Elite Tel Aviv, got past Montepaschi Siena, 92-85, in the Euroleague semifinal. Morris had 13 points, 7 rebounds, and 2 steals in the win. This dunk earned Terence the Play of the Day and Top Play of the Final Four honors from the Euroleague:

But in the finals, Morris and company came up short against CSKA Moscow, losing 91-77. Morris had almost the same box score line as in the semifinals: 13 points, 7 rebounds, 1 block. Some ex-four-letter-school player named Trajan Langdon led CSKA with 21 points. Maccabi Elite was lead by Georgia Tech's Will Bynum with 23 points. So I think it's fair to say that the ACC owns Euroleague.

A fan of the team puts this Terence Morris highlight reel together with clips from the whole season:

Wow, I don't remember TMo ever being so aggressive when he was at Maryland. Good luck to him.
