Three questions for eight clubs - Apr 15, 2013


POSTED BY:

The fourth regular season in VTB United League history has come to an end and the 12-team playoffs now await. Four team earned a first-round bye: Khimki (Russia), UNICS (Russia), CSKA (Russia) and Zalgiris (Lithuania). Eight clubs will play for the right to meet them in the quarterfinals: Krasnye Krylia (Russia), Spartak (Russia), Lokomotiv-Kuban (Russia), Nizhny Novgorod (Russia), Triumph (Russia), VEF (Latvia), Astana (Kazakhstan) and Donetsk (Ukraine).

Eight clubs from the League failed to advance to the postseason. As they prepare to move on, we asked a top official at each club three questions concerning the just-concluded VTB United League regular season.

1. Assess your teams performance this season in the VTB United League.
2. What was the biggest surprise for you during the regular season?
3. Who do you think will make the playoff finals and who will win the League?


Lietuvos Rytas (Lithuania)
(9-9, 7th place in Group A)



Martynas Purlys, Director

1. I cant call our performance this season satisfactory, since we didnt make it to the next stage of the competition. The team had a goal making the playoffs but we came up just short of accomplishing that task.

2. First of all, Id like to say that the level of competition in the VTB United League was much higher this season. There are a lot of teams playing at a very high level. This season clubs in both groups represented their countries in the Euroleague. As a result, the level of competition rose significantly. The final standings and playoff berths werent decided until the last few games.

3. Right now its very difficult to say who will play in the finals and win it all. In my opinion, both Zalgiris and Lokomotiv-Kuban can make it to the finals.


Enisey (Russia)
(6-12, 7th place in Group B)



Vladimir Petrokovskij, President

1. We played a bit better this season than last. The VTB United League is our first priority. Im very happy that we could win six games. Each was difficult, but interesting. Overall, Im satisfied with our performance.

2. I was pleasantly surprised when we had a chance to make the playoffs and take a big step forward. We had a number of injuries, subsequently, and fell out of contention, but at the same time the results and our play were fairly stable, which is always good to see.

3. Its hard to make a prediction this season. I really hope that two Russian teams meet in the finals. Im not going to name two specific clubs or a playoff favorite, though. Ill repeat that this year is very interesting and difficult to predict.


Nymburk (Czech Republic)
(5-13, 8th place in Group B)



Ronen Ginzburg, Head Coach

1. I think that we competed honorably this year. Yes, things didnt always work out, but thats basketball. Overall, Im happy with the result. We have areas to work on, and well try fix the mistakes that were made this season.

2. I was surprised by the outcome of the game between Tsmoki-Minsk (Belarus) and Zalgiris (Lithuania). Thats what I remember most from this season.

3. Its too early to talk about the champion, given that very strong teams have advanced to the playoffs. Its difficult to predict the outcome in those series. I think that a lot of games will be decided in the final seconds. I think that UNICS Kazan and, of course, CSKA, have decent chances. Well find out for sure in early June.


PGE Turow (Poland)
(4-14, 8th place in Group A)



Grzegorz Ardeli, Sports Director

1. First of all, Id like to point out that the VTB United League took a big step forward this season. We played with teams that have been successful in the Euroleague and its a big honor for us to be among the participants.

2. Its very difficult for me to answer this question. I can only comment on Turows group. Astana was a surprise this season. We didnt expect that they would be so well-prepared. It was also a big shock that Lietuvos Rytas did not make the playoffs.

3. I think that CSKA is the favorite this season. Dont forget about Khimki, either, who proved that it can compete with and defeat the top teams.


Azovmash (Ukraine)
(3-15, 9th place in Group A)



Sergey Kachinskiy, Vice President

1. Of course, our preseason expectations didnt match our results. We planned to fight for a playoff berth, but couldnt do it. Why was that? I think there are several reasons here. As you know, our club lost its president in the fall, which was a big blow for all of us. During the season we had to switch coaches. We had roster trouble and the busy calendar also affected our play. You have to play your best in the VTB United League, but we, unfortunately, couldnt keep up the pace and compete in every regular-season game at a high level.

2. There were several surprises Donetsk sneaking into the playoffs at the last moment, Astanas wins against top teams and the fact that legends Lietuvos Rytas missed out on the postseason.

3. Ill predict UNICS and CSKA make the finals and that the Army Men win it all.


Tsmoki-Minsk (Belarus)
(3-15, 9th place in Group B)



Konstantin Shereverya, General Director

1. For several reasons, I cant view our final result as satisfactory. The team was challenged to make the top six in the group and advance to the next stage, but we didnt prove capable of doing so. Overall, we did meet our goals at the end of the season. I think that there must always be forward progress and that we have something to strive for.

2. The biggest surprise was our win over Zalgiris. We have almost an entirely new team this season only a few players are left from the old roster. We have plenty of desire to fight and win. This win, undoubtedly, makes the players more confident in their own strength. We understood that we can compete with almost any opponent.

3. Its always difficult to make predictions. I think that the European powerhouses like Zalgiris Kaunas and CSKA Moscow should be in the finals. I wouldnt count out UNICS Kazan, either, as theyve played well this season. Im convinced that it will go down to the wire its the VTB United League, after all. Youll recall that it wasnt clear until the very end of the regular season who would make the playoffs Everyone wants to win. Its a thankless task, trying to predict the champion. I think that everyones worthy of winning. There arent any weak clubs. The end of the season should be very exciting.


Neptunas (Lithuania)
(3-15, 10th place in Group B)



Osvaldas Karauskas, Director

1. Our goal was to secure a place in the VTB United League next season. We didnt manage the task, unfortunately. The team had a number of problems, which made it difficult for us to do so. Its good that we received invaluable experience with the League being so strong this season. We had to play against very talented teams.

2. The League itself was a big eye-opener. It was run superbly this year. We saw the strongest clubs in Europe how they work, how they succeed and we gained invaluable playing experience in games against basketball powerhouses. As for a concrete team, Tsmoki-Minsk shocked with its win over Zalgiris.

3. Because of the Leagues high level this season its very difficult to predict who will meet in the finals, and, even more so, who will be the champion. I think that Khimki can fight for the title. Everyones seen how they can play in the Euroleague. They have a great chance. Its all going to go down to the final seconds.


Kalev (Estonia)
(3-15, 10th place in Group A)



Toomas Linamae, Vice President

1. To be honest, we hoped to make the playoffs at the start of the season. Each year we try to improve on our performance in the VTB United League. We have something to strive for. All the same, Im satisfied with our play this season. We may not have won enough games, but we played with honor. We never backed down against even the strongest opponents and made life difficult for everyone.

2. It was a surprise that teams this season werent easily separated into strong or weak categories. Everyone played at a high level. Were proud to take part in a league like this.

3. There are a lot of good teams that could make the finals. I think that two Russian teams will compete for the championship this season, Khimki and CSKA, and that the Army Men will come out on top.
