GAME REPORT

F.Y.R. of Macedonia Keep Up Tradition

9. Damjan Stojanovski (F.Y.R. of Macedonia)
Damjan Stojanovski led F.Y.R. of Macedonia with 13 points

F.Y.R. of Macedonia punched the ticket to their fourth consecutive EuroBasket on Wednesday night, courtesy of a 72-66 win at home over Belarus on the final day of the 2nd Qualifying Round.

The Balkan team finished in second place in Group D, as Belgium prevailed in the tie between them at the top (both teams had a 5-1 record) but secure their participation at the EuroBasket as one of the six best second-placed teams.

Belarus meanwhile took third place in the group on a 2-4 record.

F.Y.R. of Macedonia made sure to gain control of proceedings from the start and even enjoyed a 40-29 lead midway through the second quarter, but reached the half-time interval with their advantage trimmed down to six points, 40-34.

Belarus were entitled to entertain thoughts of an upset during the break, but the hosts put them to rest emphatically once play resumed.

Vojdan Stojanovski, with a triple 6:02 from the end of the third frame, capped off a thunderous 14-0 run for F.Y.R. of Macedonia to start the second half and the hosts jumped to a 54-34 lead.

F.Y.R. of Macedonia took their foot off the gas following that impressive stretch but still maintained a healthy double-digit lead until late in the final frame, although Belarus poured in 16 points in the final three minutes of the clash and reduced the margin to six points by the final buzzer.

Damjan Stojanovski paced the winners with 13 points and his brother Vojdan added 11 points, while Richard Hendriks picked up a double-double of 12 points and 10 rebounds.

For Belarus, Kiryl Sitnik collected a game-high 18 points and Vitali Liutych added 16 points in defeat.

COACH QUOTES

Quotes: F.Y.R. of Macedonia vs. Belarus

Aleksandar Dzikic, F.Y.R. of Macedonia Head Coach
"We made it to the EuroBasket 2015, which means we must be satisfied. This is the fourth EuroBasket for F.Y.R. of Macedonia in a row, and a total fifth, which is very important for the continuity of the basketball progress in the country. I will say it again: I know that these guys can play better than this. I think the problem is that they don't know that. But they will learn, with time. When we manage to learn and use some essential things in basketball, than we will be much better. I want to thank all the people I was surrounded with during this whole, I can say stressful period. We started as a team; we succeeded to qualify to the EuroBasket as one."

Stojan Gjuroski, F.Y.R. of Macedonia
"We entered this match really motivated because we wanted to reward our fans with qualifying for the EuroBasket in front of them. At half-time, we saw that Belgium won against Denmark with 14 points difference, so we wanted to win with more than 25 points to get the first place in the group. We played well in the third quarter, but there was a period where they hit some difficult shots, we missed some shots too, and it didn't happened. But no matter what, we must be satisfied with the result that we got. This is a great success for this young generation of national team players, that I think has a big potential to achieve much in the future."
 

Dusan Gvozdic, Belarus Head Coach
"Congratulations to F.Y.R. of Macedonia for the qualification to the EuroBasket. I can say that I am satisfied with the way we played today. I said even before the match, that we will play till the end, and I am satisfied with the approach my players had, even though we lost our chances to qualify in the previous round. I want to thank my federation for all they have done for the team during the preparation period, and during the matches. We managed to promote some younger players into the senior team, and I think we can hope for a progress in the future."

Aliaksandr Kudrautsau, Belarus
"I want to congratulate F.Y.R. of Macedonia for the win; they have some well-prepared young players, who played really good during the match, and during whole qualifiers. Our young players played well too, but we need some more time to become better, and I am sure that we will be in the future. Congratulations for F.Y.R. of Macedonia again, and I wish them good luck at the EuroBasket."

COACH QUOTES

27.08.2014
Quotes: F.Y.R. of Macedonia vs. Belarus

Aleksandar Dzikic, F.Y.R. of Macedonia Head Coach
"We made it to the EuroBasket 2015, which means we must be satisfied. This is the fourth EuroBasket for F.Y.R. of Macedonia in a row, and a total fifth, which is very important for the continuity of the basketball progress in the country. I will say it again: I know that these guys can play better than this. I think the problem is that they don't know that. But they will learn, with time. When we manage to learn and use some essential things in basketball, than we will be much better. I want to thank all the people I was surrounded with during this whole, I can say stressful period. We started as a team; we succeeded to qualify to the EuroBasket as one."

Stojan Gjuroski, F.Y.R. of Macedonia
"We entered this match really motivated because we wanted to reward our fans with qualifying for the EuroBasket in front of them. At half-time, we saw that Belgium won against Denmark with 14 points difference, so we wanted to win with more than 25 points to get the first place in the group. We played well in the third quarter, but there was a period where they hit some difficult shots, we missed some shots too, and it didn't happened. But no matter what, we must be satisfied with the result that we got. This is a great success for this young generation of national team players, that I think has a big potential to achieve much in the future."
 

Dusan Gvozdic, Belarus Head Coach
"Congratulations to F.Y.R. of Macedonia for the qualification to the EuroBasket. I can say that I am satisfied with the way we played today. I said even before the match, that we will play till the end, and I am satisfied with the approach my players had, even though we lost our chances to qualify in the previous round. I want to thank my federation for all they have done for the team during the preparation period, and during the matches. We managed to promote some younger players into the senior team, and I think we can hope for a progress in the future."

Aliaksandr Kudrautsau, Belarus
"I want to congratulate F.Y.R. of Macedonia for the win; they have some well-prepared young players, who played really good during the match, and during whole qualifiers. Our young players played well too, but we need some more time to become better, and I am sure that we will be in the future. Congratulations for F.Y.R. of Macedonia again, and I wish them good luck at the EuroBasket."
