Nymburk are devastated over their EuroCup exit at BC Kyiv after another opponent proved too strong late in the game.
In their previous outing, a 15-0 run by Dynamo St Petersburg over the last five minutes saw Nymburk fall 76-63.
BC Kyiv were pushed to the limit by CEZ Nymburk on Tuesday but they finally put paid to the visitors from the Czech Republic to reach the quarter-finals of the EuroCup.
Beaten in last year's final of the FIBA Europe League by Dynamo St Petersburg, Kyiv needed to beat Nymburk to ensure their progress and that was something they did not do earlier in the season.
The Czech Republic have confirmed Zdenek Hummel is to replace Michal Jezdik as coach of the men's national team.
CEZ Nymburk coach Jezdik wanted to retain his job with the national side but on Thursday the basketball federation's executive committee decided to hand the reins to the 58-year-old Hummel on a two-year deal.
CEZ Nymburk blew it big time in their EuroCup defeat to Dynamo St Petersburg.
Nymburk, one of the surprise packages of the competition, had led throughout much of the contest against Dynamo and victory would have enhanced their chances of advancing to the last eight.
