Sean May
Former Charlotte Bobcats Big Man Sean May (206-F-84, college: N.Carolina) and Paris Levallois (France Pro A) take on 2011 Romanian Cup Champion BCM U Pitesti in the Eurochallenge matchup November 6th. The game is available live in Romania on Dolce Sport but is also available on the net. Just search tvr online and most every game broadcast on Romanian television is also made available online. Pitesti is led this season by the return of big man Damien Kinloch (203-F-80, college: Tenn Tech) from the team that won the Romanian Cup last year. Kinloch will be giving up some size and experience to May who helped guide North Carolina to an NCAA Championship and then drafted in the NBA suiting up for the Charlotte Bobcats and Sacramento Kings before going to Europe in 2010 for Fenerbahce in Turkey. May signed a 2 year contract with Paris in the summer and in 4 games so far has averages of 20.5ppg and 6.3 while shooting 68.8% from 2. But Kinloch should be more mobile at 6'8 228 to May's 6'9 273 so it could come down to the style of game played and the points on the floor where each is able to get the ball in the offense.

There are currently 4 teams in Romania that compete in the Eurochallenge: Pitesti (Romanian Cup Champion), Ploesti (Romanian League Champion), Gaz Metan, and Timisoara. There was discussion as to the possibility of Ploesti playing in the Eurocup prior to the season. The Eurocup and Eurochallenge are some of the higher levels of International competition sanctioned by FIBA in Europe. They are just a step below EuroLeague. With EuroLeague, EuroCup, and EuroChallenge; first division clubs from around Europe compete against one another including teams from ACB Spain, Italy Serie A, France Pro A, Germany Bundesliga, Turkey TBL, Greece A1, and the Romanian National League, among others.
