The Final Four big numbers

ATHENS (Basketball Champions League) - AEK's 100-94 win over AS Monaco in Sunday's Final brought to a close the second season of the Basketball Champions League.

As such, it's time to look back on the Final Four weekend in Athens with some key numbers.


UCAM Murcia forward Ovie Soko had 15 points and 10 rebounds in the 3rd-Place Game against MHP Riesen Ludwigsburg, to register the only double-double in the Final Four.


The scoring average put up by Manny Harris, who led all players in this Final Four. The MVP of the season is also the only player to have scored 20+ points in a single game of this Final Four (20 vs UCAM Murcia).


The total number of teams - from 32 different countries - that registered last summer (of which 56 ultimately entered). 62.5 percent of them were either domestic champions or runners-up. From 66 to 56 (including the Qualifications Rounds), to 32 in the Regular Season, 16 in the Round of 16, 8 in the Quarter-Finals, and then the best 4 qualified to play this Final Four in Athens, with AEK becoming the second winners after Iberostar Tenerife.


The perfect free-throw shooting percentage by AS Monaco's Amary Sy during both Final Four games. He made good on all 6 of his attempts. No other player shot 100 percent from the line during the weekend (min 5 attempts).


The number of days before the first Round of Qualifications of the Basketball Champions League's third season tips off.


The number of minutes of action and emotions broadcast on Sunday evening for the Final. You can re-watch the last game of the season and its final ceremony here:


The total number of points scored by AS Monaco during the Final Four, the best tally of the four participating teams.


The total number of points scored during this Final Four - 85 more than during last year's inaugural edition in Tenerife (572 points). Similarly, there were notable increases in other leading statistical categories: 291 rebounds were hauled in (1 more than last year), 147 assists were dished out (25 more than last year), 71 steals made (9 more than last year), and 32 shots were blocked (14 more than last year).


The number of fans attending the games on Friday and Sunday. Both days at OAKA arena were sold-out and therefore twice beat the previous attendance record of the Basketball Champions League (11,000, already in Athens when AEK has beaten SIG Strasbourg 78-69 in the Quarter-Finals).
