Sergii Gladyr is a perfect player for coach Fratello's system, which in many ways is designed to utilise explosive two-guards. Gladyr is Ukraine's deadliest sharpshooter and perhaps the most athletic player out there. He loves to catch and shoot, but at the same time can drive towards the basket for an inspirational dunk. Gladyr sustained a knee injury during the preparation for EuroBasket 2011 and was forced to miss the event. During the time he had practiced and scrimmaged with the team, however, Serhiy looked impressive and was expected to become the team leader. Provided the guard remains healthy, one can expect him to get in the spotlight not only in Slovenia, but also in years to come.
