After the first training session in the new season, Mega’s coach Vladimir Jovanovic pointed out that the team started preparations early because it is very young and a very demanding season awaits them:
– Today we gathered to do the first practice in a slightly shorter team, considering that we are missing two players. We started preparations very early, for several reasons. Our team will be extremely young in the upcoming season and we need that work and preparation for a very demanding season. Another reason is the tour in the Bahamas that awaits us and which requires a certain level of preparation when it comes to basketball. For the next 15 days, not counting that tour, we will try to bring us to a certain physical level, so that the team is uniform since the players came in different physical conditions,
said Vladimir Jovanovic.
In the coming days, the schedule of control matches in the preparation period will be made official via the club’s website.
Basketball club Mega Basket will in the first round of the ABA league j.t.d. in the Hall of sports Ranko Zeravica to welcome Studentski centar.
