EuroView: Trist finishes season with a bang

With most leagues in Europe gearing up for the playoffs a few Aussies put in big performances to close out the regular season. Dan Trist came to play in Oviedo’s final regular season game, scoring 21 points with 6 rebounds in the 77-82 victory over Castello in the Spanish second division. Trist was the focal point of the Oviedo offense and shot an impressive 10/12 from the field, making Castello pay with every opportunity. Trist's efficiency was invaluable as the tight contest came down to the final minutes, with both teams exchanging the lead throughout the four quarters.

Oviedo secured the 4th seed and a Quarter-final against seventh seed Penas Huesca.
