    [Portuguese League 2015-16]

    The return of the rivalry between Benfica and Porto is already proving to be very useful for portuguese basketball.

    Benfica just signed SG/SF DAEQUON COOK. It's probably the most impactful signing in the history of portuguese basketball. Definitely the better NBA-er ever in Portugal.

      However, Benfica faced huge difficulties in the semi-finals against Ovarense, defeating them 3-2. Ovarense had a fantastic season without any american player, instead using spanish and african players as foreigners. Great job by spanish coach Felix Garcia.

        Benfica won the season's opening throphy, Troféu António Pratas.

        Final: Benfica 76 - 48 Oliveirense.

        However the highlight was the semi-final, the first Benfica vs Porto since Porto suspended their professional basketball activities in 2012 following a Game 5 loss in the Final.

        Entertaining match, a packed arena and a FC Porto's team slightly below expectations but with a lot to build for the future, especially in their frontcourt. Arnette Hallman, Nick Washburn and Albert Fontet have the size and the skill to destroy most teams in the Liga.

        Benfica cruised to a clear 78 - 64 victory with a lot of help from the two american signings, SG Daequan Cook and PF Jeremiah Wilson, who are easily the two best players in the Liga and who contributed with around 20 pts each.
