Alejandro Abrines Redondo led Spain to a 71-65 victory over Serbia for the gold medal of the U18 European Championship and secured the Most Valuable Player award.
Jorge Sanz and MVP Alejandro Abrines Redondo combined for 38 points as Spain held off determined Serbia 71-65 to capture Spain's third U18 European Championhip Men title in 13 years.
There must be something about Serbia-Spain finals on Polish soil. In 2009 the two countries contested the EuroBasket title in Katowice. Two years later in Wroclaw they square off for the gold medal at the U18 European Championship Men.
It's not that common for a Spanish player to make his national team debut at the U18 level. It's even less common for a player with the talent of Alejandro Abrines Redondo to do so.
