Following the end of the Conference Play-Offs which finished last week, FIBA Europe is pleased to announce the host cities for the Final Four in all four FIBA Europe Cup Men Conferences.
Today’s game became the last in the series of games between Avtodor and Sumykhimprom as Avtodor advance to the Final Four of the Conference North.
Denis Khloponine was not playing for Avtodor due to the injury he suffered in practice. From the opponents' team Ivan Shkurupiy had to sit out. He got injured during the first game between Avtodor and Sumykhimprom.
This game should decide which team would become first in group В. The hosts had to win only by more than 9 points.
Neven Spahija has experienced a high in 2003 by leading Croatia at the European Championships but he’s suffering a big low now after resigning as coach of Russian strugglers Avtodor Saratov.
With the Avtodor losses mounting, Spahija decided to leave his post at the weekend and was replaced by president Vladimir Rodionov.
