LONDON – Former Texas A&M men’s basketball All-American Acie Law IV made headlines Sunday as he helped lead Olympiacos Piraeus to a come-from-behind 100-88 victory over Real Madrid in the Euroleague title game.
Law, who starred for the Aggies from 2003-07 and earned consensus All-America and Big 12 Player of the Year honors as a senior, was named the player of the game during Sunday’s contest. The 6-foot-3 guard scored 20 points and dished out a game-high five assists as Olympiacos Piraeus defeated Real Madrid to claim its second consecutive and third overall Euroleague Championship.
"It's an amazing feeling,” Law said following the victory. “We didn't stop believing for one second, and that's what makes this team special. To win back-to-back is really crazy. I'm so happy and proud to be part of this team. We were down by 17 in the first quarter, but made it back to win this game. Everybody on this team deserves credit.”
During his standout career in Aggieland, Law carved a special spot for himself in A&M basketball history by leading the Aggies to three straight postseason appearances, including a run to the NCAA Sweet 16 in 2006-07.
