Roller Knowles lifts Willi Brinkmann Cup

Aussie Roller Tristan Knowles has starred for his Spanish club BSR Valladolid in the final of the Willi Brinkmann Cup to claim the title of European Champion.

Defeating Aldas Amfiv emphatically 100-67, Knowles scored a game high of 38 points comprising 9-of-10 from the field, 4-of-6 from 3-point range and was deadly at the charity stripe with 8-8 free throws.

This is BSR Valladolid's first major championship win in its history which coincides with Knowles's arrival at the club this year. Knowles was the tournament highest point scorer and capped the tournament off with selection to the All Star Five.

This is Knowles's second Willi Brinkmann Cup having guided Italian club ASS Stefano to victory in 2006, which coincidentally, was also against Aldas Amfiv.
