Regular Season, Round 1

The 2003-04 regular season got underway with some real thrills as five of the 12 games were decided by a single basket, including a win for defending champ FC Barcelona. Newcomer Pamesa stunned 2003 runner-up Benetton by 25 points, CSKA beat Montepaschi in a rematch of last season’s third place game and legend Arvydas Sabonis returned to the Euroleague to lead Zalgiris past Panathinaikos.
