They are a quality and talented team with several experienced players led by Vladimir Jovanovic from the bench. Although we have played against one of the strongest and most experienced teams, it is certain that we are dissatisfied with game against Cedevita Olimpija in the last round, so we will try to make an impression in Zeleznik. We gave ti show a greater desire for win with aggressive defense and good energy on the floor. If we are on our level in those segments, I believe we can achieve triumph that would mean a lot to my young team’s confidence and the challenges ahead of us”,
