Wisconsin alum Michael Finley and the Boston Celtics tipped off the NBA Finals Thursday in Los Angeles, but several time zones East, fellow Badger Zach Morley is collecting his own hardware.

2009-10 MVP.jpgPlaying for Autocid Ford Burgos in Spain, Morley was named the 2009-10 LEB Gold Spanish League MVP while leading his team to the league championship series.

Morley's Burgos team holds a 2-1 lead in the best-of-five games championship series against Vive Menorca. Burgos will look to close out the series with a home win Friday night. If necessary, game five would be played Sunday.

Morley averaged 15.1 points per game this season while shooting over 52 percent from the field. The 2005 UW alum also posted averages of 6.0 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 1.5 steals and 0.8 blocks and made a living at the free throw line, converting 81.1 percent of his attempts.

Overall, Morley topped 20 points in 11 games this season, including a season-high 30 points with eight rebounds in a Dec. 11, 2009 win over Clin.Rincon.

Morley has been playing professionally overseas since leaving Wisconsin after the 2004-05 season. In two years with the Badgers, Morley averaged 8.1 points, 5.3 rebounds 1.7 assists and 0.9 steals in 65 career games.

Loved Morley when he played for the Badgers. Great to see him still doing well, but I miss the floppy hair!

Viva Burgos!
