Tough loss for the Ukraine on opening night of EuroBasket 2011. We were down by only two points with three minutes remaining in the fourth quarter. But due to turnovers and poor rebounding, we allowed Russia to go on an 8-2 run and win Game 1: 73-64.
Hopefully we will have better results tonight when we meet Slovenia at 9:00 PM local time.
