Ukraine and The Czar

Ukraine wound up 1 and 2 in last week’s friendly hosted by Georgia. We beat Estonia on the first night, but lost against Belarus and Georgia in the following games. It’s not the best way to finish up exhibition play heading into next week’s qualifying tournament for EuroBasket 2013. Our young team will be going up against talented opponents with much more experience competing at the international level. Fortunately we have a couple more practices to regroup and prepare before opening up against Hungary on Wednesday.
