– I am pleased with the victory. This was a difficult game because the team Karpos Sokoli is thretrickiest to play. They are very atypical, centers are great shooters, can hit for three points and are extremely difficult to defend because they can play well under the basket also. We had problems in the first half, but we managed below to adapt, we took after their pick game and it gave result. I am satisfied with this season, because our primary goal is to develop young players. This year we affirmed couple of players who will go to the NBA, in this we again had a decent result. If in some matches ends in our favor we can finish the league as a sixth which would be the second best result in the history of the club. With all the problems in the right way we played in the finish of the season and in the last seven games we have recorded five wins. We raised form toward the end of the regional competition and fullfiled goals. We now have enough time to prepare for the national championship and then for the placement in the ABA league,
