Montepaschi Siena hosted Real Madrid on Thursday March 1 at PalaEstra in the final game of the Euroleague Top 16.  Sitting on top of the Group F table, with Gescrap BB and Real Madrid one game behind, a loss could have spelt disaster for Montepaschi.  Luckily, although Montepaschi lost to Real Madrid 90-102, the losing margin was less than 37 points and even with Gescrap BB beating Unicaja Malaga, Montepaschi Siena held top spot on the table and will now play in the Euroleague Quarterfinals.  Dave played 22:40 minutes, scoring 11 points and grabbing one defensive rebound.  Bo McCalebb top scored for Siena with 15 points while David Moss grabbed the most rebounds for the team, 3.  Real Madrid out-rebounded Montepaschi Siena 46-20 for the game.  Montepaschi will now play a best of 5 series (2-2-1) against Olympiacos Piraeus who finished second in group E.

Montepaschi Siena  travelled to Bilbao in Spain to play Gescrap BB in game 5 of the Euroleague Top 16.  A win for Montepaschi would guarantee them a place in the Final 8, a loss would see them still in contention.  After a tight game that saw the end of quarter lead's be one or none, Gescrap BB managed to pip Montepaschi at the post to win 60-59.  Dave played 28:09 minutes and grabbed seven rebounds and three assists.  Igor Rakocevic top score for Montepaschi with 14 points.  The loss still sees Montepaschi Siena on top of the Group F table having won four out of their five games.  Gescrap BB sits in second spot with three wins, two losses with Real Madrid third (three wins, two losses).  The final round of the Top 16 is set to be interesting.  Montepaschi hosts Real Madrid while Gescrap BB plays the winless Unicaja Malaga in Malaga.  A win to Montepaschi will see them in the Final 8, a win to Gescrap and Real Madrid will see three out of four teams in Group F with four wins and two losses.  According to Euroleague.net "In this situation, the score difference achieved by Real Madrid is the key to determine the final standings, as follows: 

Real Madrid win by less than 23 points, Siena 1st place, Gescrap 2nd place.
Real Madrid win by more than 22 AND less than 30 points, Siena 1st place, Real Madrid 2nd place.
Real Madrid win by more than 29 points AND less than 38 points, Real Madrid 1st place, Siena 2nd place.
Real Madrid win by more than 37 points, Real Madrid 1st place, Gescrap 2nd place."

It is sure to be a sell out at the PalaEstra on Thursday March 1 when Montepaschi Siena take on Real Madrid to secure themselves a berth in the Final 8.
