The summer basketball sleepiness was stirred up by the message on the additional wild cards, allocated to Ukraine for participation in EuroChallenge (earlier - FIBA cup). In - the first, all were surprised by presence at the list MBK "Nikolaev". Our trainers and the president of club didn't do earlier even conservative forecasts on a question of application in eurotournaments. And here time! - and at once all answer. There is a strong wish to hope that the demarche of the sixth team of the Ukrainian championship will receive a sufficient financial basis for the corresponding strengthening of structure.
After all all other clubs of the country, except MBK "Nikolaev" and Rovno "Pulsar", only also know that invite to itself legionaries. Objectively it turns out that business - structures make solid investments that teams were overcome at least for an exit in the ply - офф the Ukrainian championship. However, last week the Nikolaev club put process of the conclusion of contracts in motion. Vsevolod Shurmel became the new player of our team виннитчанин.
The superclosed Budivelnika project over which, in particular, the former Nikolaev trainer B. Karebin works, too gave information leakage - inhabitants of Kiev "aloud" signed Americans D. Zimmerman and E. Morrou, and also the native Béla Tserkvi A. Slipenchuka. Twice a big salary, than at it I was in the Polish champion "Prokom", mariupolets offered Lithuanian S. Serapinas. What there for figures can appear in the contract of the best sniper of Euroleague M. Selyers which will arrive to "Azovmash" from the French "Rouen"?
But "Chemist" doesn't hide that O. Itskhaki from "Maccabi" of 200 thousand euros is ready to pay. So come back in the Southern Yu. Frasenyuk from "Pulsar" again I went in "приймы". This time - to Odessa. But there the competition for a place in structure is planned too serious. "The polyequipment - Galichina", meanwhile, invited to itself Russian A. Ageev.
The BQ "Donetsk" became the competitor of glory in the EuroChallenge tournament unexpectedly. For debutants of a superleague, according to the president of FBU A. Volkov, S. Bubka strove. That didn't relieve the head of domestic basketball of reproaches from coast of "Dnepr". Dnepropetrovtsa claim that in time weren't informed on change of terms of demands and that the three-year experience of performances on the euroarena grants them the right to apply for one of wild cards.
The cup of ULEB was named by EuroCup. Vice-the champion of BQ "Kiev" taking into account the previous results starts Ukrainian from the second selection circle. Among the eight of the wolves teams wait while 16 other clubs will define rivals for them in a circle the first, and then will battle to winners for eight vacancies in a group qualifying tournament.
