Pau Gasol Keeps Winning Championships

The Spaniard led his country to the very top of Euro hoops. It’s a first for Spain: “Pau Gasol had 18 points and 11 rebounds to lead world champion Spain to an 85-63 win over Serbia in the final of the European basketball championship Sunday at Katowice, Poland. The victory gave Spain its first European title after six runner-up finishes, including a one-point loss two years ago to Russia in front of its home crowd … Gasol, the Lakers’ star forward, scored down low and blocked three shots on his way to winning tournament most-valuable-player honors.”
