Tribute to the Champs: Andrey Vorontsevich
In his 13 seasons with CSKA Moscow, Andrey Vorontsevich has become one of the faces of a European basketball dynasty. Vorontsevich may have seen less playing time this season, but his being able to accept a new role has been important to the team's chemistry. The 31-year-old forward has, along with Kyle Hines, been an important player to link the Russian players with those from abroad. On the court, Vorontsevich was a player who Coach Dimitris Itoudis could count on to provide a lift and create mismatches at the power forward position. Two of his four starts this season came in the playoff games on the road against KIROLBET Baskonia Vitoria-Gasteiz; Vorontsevich had 6 points and 3 rebounds in the pivotal Game 3 victory. This season marked his ninth Final Four, which is more than any other active player. Even though he did not play in either Final Four game, Vorontsevich celebrated his third EuroLeague title with gusto.
