Ukraine and The Czar

Ukraine beat Cyprus 69-51 in our final game of the EuroBasket Qualification Round in Yuzhne. We led 28-27 at halftime, went up by 4 points in the third quarter and fished strong in the fourth. Steve Burtt and Maxym Korniyenko led our offensive charge with 13 points and 12 points respectively. Kyryl Natyazhko attacked the glass and grabbed 13 rebounds. Ukraine finished with a 6-2 record, good for second place in Group C. Special thanks to my incredible staff: Bob Hill, Joe Wolf, Jay Larranaga, Rich Dalatri, Zach Guthrie and Jack Nolan along with Ukraine native and outstanding coach Denis Zhuravlev.
