Czech Republic: Blazek Angry After Exit

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 Advance, Praha Bow Out

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.
