Serge Ibaka and Victor Sada, 2011 Eurobasket Champions

Spain became just the fourth country ever to win back-to-back gold medals as it outpaced France 98-85. Spanish national team had too much offensively for France and once they moved 13 points in front, early in the third quarter, they never seriously looked like relinquishing their title. Juan Carlos Navarro was named the MVP of the tournament and the two You First players had a good performance. Serge Ibaka scored 4 points, 1 rebounds and 5 blocks; Victor Sada scored 2 points, 1 rebound and 1 assists.

Another difference maker in the final was Oklahoma City Thunder forward Serge Ibaka, who had five blocks in a five-minute span in the second quarter when Spain built a 10-point lead that it never relinquished. Ibaka, You First client, said that "this was my destiny and I have achieved my dream. I knew that we were going to win because we have a great team. It is my first year with the team and look! Yes sir, five blocks, that's right man."
