FEL favourites Unics Kazan overcame a gutsy play-off effort from KK Hemofarm Vrsac to become the 2nd Russian team (along with Ural Great) to advance to the Final Four.
Hemofarm shocked Kazan in the 2nd game of the series, but there was no doubting the Russian side’s dominance in game 3.
The fan and coaching voting has finished, the FIBA Europe panel of experts has met and the 12-man rosters for the upcoming FIBA Europe League All-Star Day Rosters have been decided.
FIBA Europe today announced the head coaches that will participate in the FIBA Europe League All-Star Day, scheduled to take place on 16th March 2004 in Kiev Ukraine.
The format of the game will be Europe v. Rest of the World and rosters will consist of 12 players per side.
Indianapolis was the venue for FIBA's 2002 World Championships but the centre of the basketball universe, it can be argued, is Serbia & Montenegro.
In fact, what's there to argue? Yugoslavia won the 1997 European title and also claimed back-to-back world crowns - the last coming on American soil when they defeated a USA team consisting of NBA players in the quarters.
