Following Tuesday’s tough 80-79 loss to Croatia in overtime, Ukraine bounced back with a 68-47 win over Cyprus in Game 4. We got a big lift off the bench from Zaba Zabirchenko and Max Pustozvonov, who contributed 15 points and 14 points respectively. Maxym Korniyenko pulled down 9 rebounds, and Slava Kravtsov had 8 boards. Our record now stands at 3-1 in the qualifying round for EuroBasket 2013. After a short break Ukraine will head to Pécs to face Hungary in Game 5 on August 30th.
