Randolph sets Final Four mark with 8 offensive rebounds
Anthony Randolph of Lokomotiv Kuban Krasnador set a new Euroleague Final Four record for offensive rebounds in a game by collecting 8 boards against CSKA Moscow in the first semifinal at Mercedes-Benz Arena. Randolph, who collected a total of 11 rebounds for the game, eclipsed the previous mark of 7 set by Tau Ceramica Vitoria’s Luis Scola during the 2006 semifinals against Maccabi Elite Tel Aviv in Prague. Randolph picked up the record-breaking eighth offensive rebound at the 0:57 minute mark of the third quarter by slamming home a miss from Chris Singleton. Randolph scored nine of his 13 points directly off of those rebounds. The record for most rebounds in a Final Four game remains 15, shared jointly by Maccabi Elite Tel Aviv’s Maceo Baston from the 2006 championship game against CSKA Moscow and CSKA’s David Andersen from the Third Place Game of the 2005 Final Four against Panathinaikos Athens. As a team, Lokomotiv’s 19 offensive rebounds were 1 shy of the Final Four record of 20 set by CSKA in the 2005 Third-Place Game in Moscow.
