Samara Look To Learn From Final Defeat

Samara may be down, but the 2005 Euroleague champions are certainly not out. Their loss at the hands of Gambrinus Brno in the 2006 Final Four may have been bitter, but defeat can also bring positive impetus for change.

"I think we learned from this experience," said Samara's Ann Wauters after playing in her 6th Final Four (for the record, she has won three times).
