Fantasy Challenge picks for round 36: Euroleague Play-in Round 2.

Fantasy Challenge picks for round 36: Euroleague Play-in Round 2.

Baskonia lost to Maccabi Tel Aviv in the first match of the play-in, and now they will face Virtus Bologna, who managed to beat Efes on the road. The two teams will face off for Round 2 of the play-in at the Buesa Arena (Baskonia’s home court) to clinch the 8th spot leading to the playoffs. We select our Fantasy Challenge teams based on the players’ performance in their previous game. C. Miller-Mcityre had an excellent game, so we’ll designate him as the captain for Baskonia, while I. Lundberg seems to be in good form. Our options are limited at the center position, so we’ll go with the selection of M. Costello. C. Moneke will be doubtful after his injury against Maccabi, so I would prefer to leave him out.

After the psychologically important victory achieved by Virtus Bologna, having the chance to get revenge against Baskonia (they played each other in the last round of the regular season in a controversial match, with Baskonia winning), I will choose Luca Banchi as the coach.

1. Low-Budget Fantasy challenge team for Round 36.

I’m going to pick C. Miller-Mcityre, who stood out in the game against Maccabi, to start, while I’m taking a bit of a gamble with M. Howard. Although he didn’t perform well in the last game, he’s been on a run of good form lately. The starting lineup is completed by M. Costello, T. Shengelia, I. Lundberg, and T. Sedekerskis.

2. Medium-Budget Fantasy challenge team for Round 36.

In the second team, I will select T. Shengelia as the captain, while the team will mirror the first team, except that I’ve included A. Polonara as the 6th player. He has performed excellently in his last matches.

3. High-Budget Fantasy challenge team for Round 36.

 High-Budget Fantasy challenge team for Round 35.

In our high-budget team, we’ve made similar choices with the only difference being the changes: M. Kotsar, A. Polonara, I. Cordinier, and D. Hackett have been included.

I chose to exclude C. Moneke. If you believe he will perform well in this game, you can add him to your high-budget team. However, he hasn’t looked good on the floor lately and is coming off an injury, which raises doubts about his status.
