   An Unnecessarily Exhaustive Guide To The Eurocup Final Four

Whereas Lampe leads the frontcourt, ex-BYU guard Terrell Lyday leads the backcourt. Lyday, a combo guard, was entrusted with more of a point guard role when star point guard Marko Popovic went down with injury, and shone in the role. Without ever being a pure, pick-and-roll, penetrate-and-kick type of point guard, Lyday did enough of everything to both get his own and create looks for his teammates, without ever making too many mistakes. He has seamlessly flitted between the two positions for years, and this one is no different; also arguably the best shooter on the roster, and one of the best guard defenders, Lyday led the team in Popovic's absence, as evidenced by his team high numbers in Eurocup play of 14.8 points and 3.4 assists per game. (Popovic is now healthy again and will bump Lyday back to the two guard spot. As well as Lyday played as a point, Popovic is a better one.)
