Monaco’s basketball team has won yet again, this time at Disneyland Paris during the 2018 Leaders Cup. In this competition, reserved for the French basketball elite, the Roca Boys triumphed for the third time in a row on Sunday, February 18, beating Le Mans 83 to 78 in the final game.

The match started badly with Le Mans coming on strong from the start but by the second quarter, Roca Team controlled the game with a 12 points difference until the 13th minute (40-28) before Le Mans recovered, managing to catch up within four small points of Monaco.

The next two quarters sealed Monaco’s victory. The concentration and tenacity of Coach Z’s men was proven from a 63-55 lead at the end of the third quarter to 83-78 at the final buzzer. The Monegasques held out and won their third consecutive Leaders Cup in as many competitions.

With an average of 7.3 passes in the tournament, DJ Cooper was voted MVP.

Meanwhile, Roca Team is proud to welcome 31-year-old Croatian international interior Damjan Rudez, as a 6.8ft reinforcement for the team’s future ambitions.
