Prague / Brno – Basketball players ZVVZ USK Prague will start the fight to advance to the March quarterfinals of the Euroleague in the home hall Královka. In the opening match of the retaliatory part of Group B, they will face Fenerbahce Istanbul, in the following days they will encounter Lyon and Gdynia. After the December matches in Istanbul, the Prague team is second, the leader Lyon also has five points and the third Fenerhance.
The Czech champions will try to repay the Fenerbahce basketball players for a 70:77 defeat today from 7 pm. However, coach Natálie Hejková’s ward is bothered by the absence of the injured American support Alyssa Thomas, who tore off her Achilles tendon and the season ended for her. “It is said that everyone is replaceable. But in addition to being the team leader, Thomas carried the banner of our style of play and it is difficult to change in a few days. We have been in a great misfortune,” Hejková said. Thirty-six-year-old American Candice Dupree, who last played for the WNBA for Indiana, joined the team as a reinforcement.
It will be played without spectators, just like in Brno, where the European Basketball Championship will start today with the participation of Králova Pole, MBA Moscow, Gorzów and the Turkish team Elazig Özel Idare. The first opponent of the home team will be the Polish Gorzów.
