The Take

Eurocup newcomer Trabzonspor Medical Park (1-1) hosts Buducnost VOLI Podgorica (1-1) in an intriguing encounter of two teams meeting for the first time ever. Historically, Buducnost has not had much success on Turkish soil, holding a 9-2 all-time record after having lost the last seven games in that country. Its last win in Turkey came in 1999. Unics Kazan (2-0) welcomes Aris Thessaloniki (1-1) for their first battle in 16 years. No Eurocup team has been as dominant in the first two weeks as Unics, which ranks third in scoring with 89.5 points per game. Another newcomer, Steaua CSM Eximbank Bucharest (1-1) will go for its second consecutive home win against last year's semifinalist Banvit Bandirma (0-2), whose point guard A.J. Slaughter was the top scorer in Round 2 with 29 points against Unics. However, the visitors are still winless despite being the best offensive rebounding team in the competition, pulling down 18.5 of their own misses per game.

Buducnost VOLI Podgorica
"This will be a very difficult away game, with a team who played the EuroChallenge final last season, and stepped up to a new cycle of competitions with some excellent players. We have to play much better than last week against Aris, that’s what I expect from my team. We will try to keep a close game and with good defense try to make a big surprise."

"First of all it was not an easy game for us. The players and everybody is under pressure. We are in a situation that it not easy to be in right now. I think we played a good game, but still not 60% or 70% of what this team can do. But right now it was important to win. I think we controlled the game in rebounding and tempo; we just made some mistakes and we were always punished. We had no problems with half court defense, but our transition defense allowed three-point shots, gave Drajekovic easy shots. We will contınue working and we will fix things."
JOVOVIC, IGOR
Buducnost VOLI Podgorica
"I’m sorry for this defeat. We had a chance to change the game and win, but I would also like to congratulate our opponent for a good performance. We didn’t start as well as they started; they took a big lead and then we started to play better. I think the crucial point was towards the end when we started to miss layups. I’m not trying to make an excuse, but we were without an important player for our team: the captain and a young guy. We came here with only 10 players. Hopefully we will play better in the next game."

"We had a good week in practice. All the guys stuck together. We knew the importance of this game. We made mistakes, but we stuck together and almost played a complete game. We are still making mistakes like our coach said just now. We can only correct this in practice and believe in ourselves."
DRAGICEVIC, TADIJA
Buducnost VOLI Podgorica
"I agree with the coach. I think we were in the game and it was an important game for both teams. We didn’t start well, but found our rhythm and we came back. In the crucial moments, they hit very important shots and that’s why they won. So most important is that the difference is not high, so we must try to win by more points at home. I would like to congratulate the opponent and my teammates. We were missing our most important player, our captain and we will try to win the next game."
