por Roberto Anidos publicado en 1999 Baskonia Cup Decade 90 Sevilla

In 1999, the cup was held in Valencia, where Baskonia, after three years of waiting, won the cup again. The Basques beat Caja San Fernando Sevilla in the final (70-61), with Beric leading the attack, and Bennett, MVP of the tournament, beating Turner in the bases duel

The Caja San Fernando sought out their options, (28-32), and for many minutes competed. But as the minutes went by it seemed that the Andalusians were getting too long in the final, and they definitely lost the chance to take the title.

Beric (19 points), Rusconi (15 points), Bennett (13 points) and Bonner (12), the top scorers on the Basque side. In the Seville team, Turner (19 points), Scott (18 points) and Romero (10).
