UMMC-Junior Head Coach Denis Sevastyanov:
- We are glad that we managed to win twice competing on the road. Our defense and high 3-point shooting percentage let us confidently win the first match. In the second game, the opponent tried hard to get satisfaction for the first loss. In the first half of the second meeting, the game was even. Nevertheless, by the time of the half-time break we managed to capture the lead and put the game under control all the way to the final buzzer. We keep on working on our mistakes and get ready for the next matches. We are about to have very difficult games. We will do our best to win and show everything we are capable to do.
Denis Sevastyanov’s team is going to compete in the Superleague-1 next round on the road in Rostov-on-Don on October 5 and 6 facing on court local Rostov-on-Don-UFU.
