Congratulations to former #UVAMBB center Mike Tobey. His Iberostar Tenerife team just won the 2017 FIBA Intercontinental Cup Championship as the squad from the Canary Islands defeated Venezuela 76-71 in the finals. Tobey scored 21 points with nine rebounds in the championship game to earn MVP honors. This article from solobasket.com details his efforts in Spanish (if you run it through Google translate, you can read about his “triple frontal, alley-oop, after offensive rebound or after movements to the post”). Or check out this video that includes his hoisting of the MVP trophy.
