Maric nominated for All-Euroleague team

Boomer Aleks Maric has been nominated for the All-Euroleague team after his breakout season with Partizan Belgrade.

Voting for the All-Euroleague team by fans and media members around Europe and beyond has produced a world-class list of nominees for the 2009-10 season.

Tens of thousands of fans from around the world were able to cast votes for their favourite players, as did media members from each of the countries with Euroleague teams this season.

Maric led the Euroleague in average performance index rating, rebounds and fouls drawn. He was weekly MVP three times in one month and recorded five double-doubles in 16 games.

Teams that qualified to the Final Four dominated the nominations, with Olympiacos Piraeus having three nominees, while Regal FC Barcelona, Partizan Belgrade and CSKA Moscow each had two. Only one nominee came from a non-Final Four team.

The All-Euroleague first and second teams, plus the Euroleague MVP, will be named at The Euroleague Basketball Awards Ceremony on Saturday, May 8, during the Final Four in Paris.

Maric and Partizan play in the Euroleague Final Four on May 7.
