The final day of the 2012 adidas Eurocamp brought us four games. We’ll review those games here and them give you our impressions of the entire event, the players who did well and those that did not, sometime tomorrow morning.
In the opening game Russia topped the Australia team 66-63 behind 14 points from Vladislav Trushkin. Trushkin only shot 1-of-5 on three’s but was efficient from mid-range and in transition. 6’5 Owen Odigie, who we’ve covered in our International Recruiting Service, scored 17 points and looked to be the best player on the floor. The athletic Odigie connected on 5-of-11 from the floor and made two three-pointers.
Team 1 then topped Team 3, 56-41. The powerful Daniel Diez of Spain led the winners with 16 points on 7-of-11 shooting and made his only three-pointer. Andrew Albicy was effective at point with six points, five rebounds, four assists and only one turnover in limited minutes. Darko Planinic continued is strong play for the losers with 10 points.
Team 4 beat Team 2 in a poorly played contest 66-27. NBA hopefuls Tornike Shengelia and Tomislav Zubcic led the winners with 12 and 10 points. Shengelia has looked solid all session and has helped his NBA stock. He had four rebounds, five assists and two steals in this game. Team 2’s stars all looked terrible. Josep Franch scored one point in 31 minutes, shot 0-for-5 and committed five turnovers. David Jelinek shot 3-for-9 and scored eight points. Big Dusan Cantekin looked out of sorts in his 18 minutes, with one point and no rebounds. French forward Abdoulaye Loum shot 0-for-5.
In the final contest, the Eurocamp All-Stars topped France 66-60. Shengelia looked excellent again with 16 points on 8-for-15 shooting. Jelinek has his best game of the event by far in scoring 21 points in 21 minutes and Planinic contributed 11 points and five rebounds. For France, big Rudy Gobert continued to impress with 13 points on 6-of-8 shooting, four rebounds and three blocks. PG 6’7 Leo Westermann was excellent with 13 points, 11 rebounds and four assists. France was led by Axel Toupane who got to the foul line nine times en route to 15 points.
