Tyrese Rice, Khimki Moscow Region

The 2014-15 Eurocup will be full of stars and some of them shined in European club competitions last season. Nobody did better, however, than Khimki Moscow Region playmaker Tyrese Rice, who led Maccabi Electra Tel Aviv to the Turkish Airlines Euroleague title, earning Final Four MVP honors. Rice hit the game-winning shot in his team's semifinal victory against CSKA Moscow and went on to lead Maccabi with 26 points in a crowning 86-98 overtime victory against Real Madrid in the championship game. Looking for new challenges and a fresh start, Rice joined Khimki last summer, completing a very talented backcourt that also features Eurocup winner Marko Popovic and Petteri Koponen. Khimki broke the all-time Eurocup record with 15 consecutive wins last season and finished the season 16-2, despite behing knocked out in the eighthfinals by eventual champion Valencia Basket Club. Rice, who reached the Eurocup semifinals with Lietuvos Rytas Vilnius in the 2011-12 season, is fully aware that there will be some very good teams out there. "Not only does the Euroleague have great teams, but also the Eurocup," Rice told Eurocupbasketball.com. "It has a lot of teams that you could play and compete very well in the Euroleague. We accept the challenge."

Club info
Former champion Khimki Moscow Region returns to the Eurocup, coming off an up-and-down campaign, but eager to get back into the title contention in all competitions. Last season Khimki won 15 consecutive Eurocup games before being ousted in the eighthfinals against the eventual champ Valencia Basket Club by a single point, and club also lost in the VTB League quarterfinals. Khimki Basketball Club was founded in 1997, but as soon as soon as 2003 it made the Russian League semifinals, and the first of three straight Russian Cup semis appearances. Khimki reached Russian League and Russian Cup finals 2006, falling against mighty CSKA Moscow in both, while Joventut Badalona beat Khimki in the 2006 FIBA EuroCup final. Young club’s hard work paid off when it downed CSKA in the 2007 Russian Cup final for the club's first crown of any kind. That season, it also reached the first of the three consecutive Russian League finals, as well as its first ULEB Cup Last 16. Club made more big strides in 2008-09, reaching Eurocup title game, but falling short against Lietuvos Rytas. In 2009-10, Khimki showed it was not an average Turkish Airlines Euroleague newcomer, reaching the Top 16. Club added more silverware to the trophy room, winning the VTB league in 2011, edging CSKA 66-64 in the title game. It all clicked again in 2011-12, as Khimki downed Valencia Basket 77-68 for its first-ever continental title. A year later, Khimki’s third Euroleague campaign finished in the Top 16, a win short of a place in the playoffs, but it was also the first of the two title-free seasons. Khimki now hopes to make another deep run in the Eurocup, and once again contend for the title.
