Angry USK Praha coach Lubor Blazek has admitted it will take a long time for him to get over his side's EuroLeague elimination.
The Czech outfit endured a difficult campaign, which reached its conclusion on Tuesday with a dramatic 66-64 defeat to MiZo-Pecs.
MiZo Pecs led by as many as 19 points in the first half but had to hold on for dear life at the end as they posted a 66-64 win at USK Praha.
The defeat was a cruel one for the Czech team, who finished the campaign last in Group A with just one victory - not enough to reach the eighth-finals as Dexia Namur climbed above them into fifth place on the night with an upset at home over USO Basket Mondeville, 74-68.
Leaders VBM-SGAU Samara claimed their seventh straight victory in Group A as they eased past USK Prague 89-71 on Wednesday.
Maria Stepanova and Amaya Valdemoro combined to score 40 points between them as the Samara-based giants piled more agony on the lowly Czechs.
It was a tale of two Czech teams in the EuroLeague Women on Wednesday night as struggling USK Praja lost for the seventh time while juggernauts Gambrinus Sika Brno prevailed for the seventh.
Praha were unable to build on last week's triumph over Dexia Namur and crashed to a 71-60 defeat against Ros Casares.
