Goran Nogic
Serbian Coach Goran Nogic has been living for 14 years in Portugal. He is an Assistant Coach for Senior Team & Coordinator of Young Teams of Sport Lisboa e Benfica, Lisbon. Also, he is the founder of Academy Monte Basket, Albufeira, Portugal. Before Portugal, Nogic has worked as a Coach for Basketball Club Sombor, Basketball Club Mladost U-19 Team, and Basketball Club Partizan U-17 . With his busy schedule, Nogic found some free time to answere the questions for eurobasket.

1. Last weekend your team, Benfica, won Academica and you are new/old Champion of Portugal?
It was great final series, one game won in last second shot, the other in overtime, 4 games with full gyms, games that Portuguese basketball need. I think that our team was better; we were team with more individual quality, with more team solutions and team with bigger rotation. Academica team plays with a lot wish and enthusiasm and I would like to congratulate them for that.

2. Can you tell us something about this final series of Play-Off?
We beat Academica in first two games in our court. First game we won with last second shot (69-67). In the second game we change some thinks in our defense and we beat them with big different (94-62). Third game at Academica court, we were almost all game 5-10 points in front but they managed to leave gave at overtime and beat us by 5 points (79-74). In the fourth game Academica start better game and won 1st quarter by 24-12. After that our players change our defensive attitude and we beat 2nd quarter by 25-11, 3rd by 23-16 and last one by 31-26 and final score was 91-77.

3. It was yours 6th trophy at last two years that you work as assistant coach of Carlos Lisboa, the best Portuguese player of all time?
Yes we won together two Championships, Super Cup, League Cup and more two Cups of opening tournaments that has the name Trophy of Antonio Prates

4. In the same time you are Coordinator of all youth teams that are also very successful. Can you tell us something more about Benfica Basketball School?
We have more than 250 girls and boys, young players divided in 18 teams from U-8 until U-20 (senior B team). With them work 18 coaches, and I am Coordinator of all them but in the same time I work as Head Coach of Senior B team. From my first season in Benfica (2007/2008) until today we won 19 Championship, 7 National and 12 Regional Championship (with U-20 team I was 4 times Champion). During this last 5-6 years more than 50 the best young players of our team play for Portuguese National Selections and in the same time in this moment in the Professional Portuguese League (LPB) play more than 30 players that make your formation in our basketball school. Sometimes I ask myself: what I have to do the next to make even better, and isnt easy to find right answer.

5. Tell us more about PT league?
Portuguese League is different than 5-6 years ago. Financial crises the first touch sports clubs and culture. As basketball in Portugal is on shade of football industry it was even bigger impact. In the Professional League can play 3 foreigner player, but most of teams had 1 or 2 foreign players. Some of them are or young players from NCAA that like to start his Europe carrier or some of them are the players on the end of his career. In the same time some of the best Portuguese players already finish his career or are on the end of career with 35 or more years. On the other side, young players dont believe that they can have professional career as basketball players and in the case that they have some ambition they looking for the way how to go to Spain or some the other Europe basketball.

6. Do you follow the Serbian League?
My first interest is Euroligue, after that I like to watch some game from ABA League, and when Serbian League start with teams from ABA League I also follow that. Sometimes I also follow some games of youth teams.

7. Whats the difference btw Serbian and PT league?
On one side there is big deference, but on the other side there are some things that are very similar. I think that just 2-3 maybe 4 teams from Portugal can play in Serbian League. Budgets and infrastructure are similar: small number of the clubs with stable budget, and a lot of clubs with stabie - continues problems. Infrastructure and condition for work if we take out the best clubs, are similar, but big difference is that I think Serbian players like to work more, or at least have better habits to work.

8. Any Serbian players in Portugal?
Just several young players: Stefan Djukic (Sampaense), Tatiana Milovac (Boa Viagem), and my daughter Jovana Nogic (Benfica). All of them have Serbian-Portuguese nationality; it means they play as domestic players.

9. Why they are not there?
First of all because there are some myths that the Serbian players are very expensive. On the other side Portuguese League is not attractive for Serbian players because just some women teams play in Europe. Man teams dont play in any Europe competition, even Euro Challenge.

10. Your dauther is playing for Portugal National Team?
First of all she is still very young just 15 years. She has Serbian-Portuguese nationality and in the case that both teams wants her (as it is happened this year) she still can choose between Serbian or Portuguese National team. As she last year was just invited by Serbian National team, she decided together with her mother and me, to play just for Serbia until her 18 years, in the case that she is an option of Serbian National Team Coaches. Last season she played for Benfica U-19 and also for our senior team that competed at 3rd Division. She also was Champion, but better than father because her team didnt lose any game.

11. You have your Academy? Whats the goal of Monte Basket?
Academy Monte Basket was founded in 2006 , with the aim to promote and develop basketball during summer periods, when most clubs do not train. Our Academy is open for all players and coaches who are willing to improve their skills and have a wish to change their experience.

12. What makes the Academy Monte Basket special?

Other camps mostly have fun character they are a part of participants' leisure time. The Camp Monte Basket is oriented to the professional work with children in order for them to learn and improve their basketball. The work at the Academy is divided into the Camp for Specializations in offensive technique for different positions as point guards, shooting guards or post players, end from 2009 also we have PRO Camp. It is established to improve physical and playing performance of athletes that prepare to start professional career.

13. Your philosophy of the basketball game is the same in the club and at the Academy?

I think that all the coaches on the world like that their teams and players play hard and strong in defense, make rebounds, run fast break, read and understand game, be good shooters and dunk 20-30 times on the game. But this is just the dream. On the other side most of them forget to look for the right way that can help them to touch your dreams. Coach teaches players, and for that reason cant forget to teach your-self. In the same time on the court you have give to your players and club that you work always more than they expect. Just on this way you will receive what you are deserve.

14. Next season?
Benfica is the club with most members in the world - people that pay all the months a membership, to help your club. They help club, but they also wants to see your club always wining. And as Carlos Lisboa likes to say any of us when sing for Benfica sing to be winner it means that our obligation is always same: forget that you were champion, and prepare yourself to be again. With condition for the work that President of Benfica Mr. Luis Filipe Vieira give us, our obligation but in the same time happiness is to always win.

15. Personal goal? Professional Ambitions?
On professional side I would like to continue to help my team to change position and interest of people for basketball as sport in Portugal, but also and position of Portuguese basketball in Europe. In the same time I am hope that I will finished my Master and that I will have good health and enough motivation as until now to teach young players and continue to learn from them.

Thank you for the interview Goran, Eurobasket and Tamara Ruzic wishes you a lot of success in your career in Portugal.

Nemanja Todorovic (205-C/F-91) had an amazing evening in the last round for top-ranked Borac, receiving a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 1 (Second Stage). The 25-year old player had a double-double of 11 points and 12 rebounds, while his team beat Dynamic BG (#3, 0-1) 75-64. It allowed Borac to consolidate first place in the Serbian KLS. But it's just the very beginning of the Second Stage and Borac won just one (their first) game. It's too early to say anything as the...   [read more]
