Drew Nicholas in the Euroleague Final Four

Greek team Panathinaikos, home of sharpshooter Drew Nicholas (1999-2003), beat Regal FC Barcelona (and Terence Morris (1997-2001)) 3-1 in their best-of-5 quarterfinal series to reach the Euroleague Final Four.

In the series, Nicholas averaged 9.8 points, 1.8 rebounds, and 1.5 assists in four games. Nicholas played well in the first three games, but sprained his ankle and left game 4 early, which hurt his averages. Morris averaged 5 points, 3.3 rebounds, and 1.5 steals in four games.

Panathinaikos, back in the Final Four after winning it all in 2009 and then missing out in 2010, will play Montepaschi Siena on May 6th.

Panathinaikos is not an easy opponent to beat, so Barcelona had the toughest matchup in the playoffs. It was just unfortunate for coach Xavi Pascual and his crew that this had to happen before they even reached the Final Four, because many critics were already describing this match up to be like that of a Final Four championship game!
