    • 2nd ACADÉMICA DE COIMBRA (22-11)

      Ideal starting five (in bold: MVP)

      PG Mário Fernandes: 13.5 pts, 5.6 ast
      SG João Balseiro: 16.5 pts, 1.82 st
      SF Fernando Sousa: 10.2 pts, 1.83 st
      PF Arnette Hallman: 14.0 pts, 10.2 reb, 1.91 st
      C Szymon Lukasiak: 10.9 pts, 1.06 blk

      FERNANDO SOUSA can be considered as the first «historical» LPB player: more than 1000 pts, 500 reb, 250 ast, 150 st and 50 blk; he’s now the second leading scorer (only behind Greg Stempin) and the more efficient burglar (238 st). I know that ARNETTE HALLMAN’s outside-shooting is suspect, but at least he’s a rebounding beast (my kind of PF). Except for Tim Toler, Académica’s signings were a huge hit: JOÃO BALSEIRO led all Portuguese in scoring; only José Barbosa dished-out more assists per game than MÁRIO FERNANDES, SZYMON LUKASIAK (only hired because of the help of a couple of anonymous benefactors) gave the team the inside presence that MARCO GONÇALVES (7.2 pts, 4.5 reb) alone couldn’t provide. The other two men of a very short rotation were BRUNO COSTA (6.8 pts, 3.1 reb), who had an important role when Sousa was injured, and DIOGO SIMÕES (4.2 pts, 3.6 ast), who ranks 5th all-time in assists (503).
