After an intensive regimen of conditioning, drills, demonstrations, film sessions and scrimmages, the Ukraine National Team’s training camp in Klaipėda is drawing to a close. The coaching staff and players worked extremely hard, and our squad has already made significant strides. This weekend we will participate in a four-team international tournament back in Kiev. Then we will resume training in order to continue laying the groundwork for a successful showing when we return to Klaipėda in a short while to open up EuroBasket 2011 on August 31.
