Juan Carlos Navarro - Spain
History was made at EuroBasket 2011 on Sunday when Spain became just the first country this century to win back-to-back gold medals, outpacing France 98-85 before a sellout crowd of 15,440 at Zalgirio Arena in Kaunas, Lithuania. Turkish Airlines Euroleague legend Juan Carlos Navarro of FC Regal Barcelona was named MVP after pouring in 27 points and dishing 5 assists to lead Spain. Navarro averaged 29.3 points over three games as Spain breezed through the quarters, semis and final. The former Euroleague MVP was joined on the All-EuroBasket 2011 team by teammate Pau Gasol, Bo McCalebb of FYROM and Montepaschi Siena, Tony Parker of France and Andrei Kirilenko of Russia. In the bronze-medal game, Russia outlasted F.Y.R. of Macedonia 68-72 after the score had been tied with under 20 seconds left. A one-handed flip-in with 16 seconds left by Sergey Bykov of Lokomotiv Kuban proved the game-winner. MORE

EuroBasket 2011 preview
EuroBasket 2011 The road to the basketball glory will run through one of the sport's sacred grounds, Lithuania, when EuroBasket 2011 starts on Wednesday, August 31 with 24 teams full of Euroleague and Eurocup talent battling not only to become continental champs, but also to win two places in the 2012 London Olympics or four berths in next summer's pre-Olympics qualifying tournament. EuroBasket 2011's structure was changed from previous editions to add more drama from the very beginning. Teams have been divided into four groups of six, only the best three teams of which will reach the second phase at Siemens Arena in Vilnius. There, two groups of six teams whose first-round results will also be counted, will yield eight survivors to the medal rounds in Kaunas. MORE
