The man who led CSKA Moscow to the promised land after 8 eight years of drought, was voted as “Coach of the Year” in Euroleague. Dimitris Itoudis, the 2016 European champion with the Russian team, was recognized by his peers as the best head coach of the competition, an indubitably well deserved honor.

Not only was CSKA Moscow widely acclaimed for the top-level basketball it performed this year, but it also went all the way into winning the Euroleague for the first time since 2008. Under Itoudis’ guidance, the Russians marched to the Final Four with an impressive 25-3 record and by producing the best offense in the competition.

In the semifinals, CSKA prevailed over Lokomotiv Kuban and then bettered Fenerbahce in one of the most thrilling Finals we have ever seen in Euroleague to lift the illustrious trophy of the champion while also breaking… a curse that has haunted CSKA’s previous Final Four ventures.

Therefore, it’s no surprise that the coaches of Euroleague voted Dimitris Itoudis to win the “Alexander Gomelskiy” coach of the year award.
