The Tournament

The 18-year-old enjoyed an excellent start to the event and produced a 30-point, 10-rebound double double as Madrid breezed past EA7 Emporio Armani Milan.

However, it was a different story in their second game as Mega MIS Belgrade offered a tough test to the Spanish side, but the reigning champions ultimately prevailed 60-55, with Gonzalez providing eight points, seven rebounds and four assists.

Up next for Gonzalez and co. was Ratiopharm Ulm, who were swiftly dealt with as the tournament MVP notched 14 points, six rebounds and two blocks in an 86-53 blowout.

The championship game was one to remember, as the two sides could not be separated after four quarters and overtime was required to determine the champion.

Madrid faced French outfit PFBB INSEP Paris, who took the Spaniards all the way, but it was the now five-time champions who triumphed, winning 85-84.

Gonzalez tallied 23 points, 11 rebounds, six assists, three steals in two blocks in an incredible all-round performance.

This talented Real Madrid side are now two victories ahead of CSKA Moscow with an outstanding five ANGT titles.
