Lokomotiv Rostov 74 vs. CSU Asesoft Ploiesti 75

A sea of blue and white in the spectator tribunes greeted the teams as they hit the court for today’s FIBA Europe Cup Men Final in Ploiesti, Romania and CSU Asesoft’s boys in blue were going to need the support as they faced a tough opponent in Lokomotiv Rostov.

The cool-headed Russians had shown in the Semi-Final that they were very capable of taking the title, especially if their hosts’ level of concentration didn’t remain high. In a terrific final which, in the final minutes went right down to the wire, Ploiesti held off a final surge even in the last seconds to finish victorious and take the title.

Banvit BC 69 vs. CSU Asesoft Ploiesti 83

Hosts CSU Asesoft Ploiesti got a heroes’ welcome this evening as they played the second FIBA Europe Cup Men Semi-Final to a sell-out crowd in the Ploiesti Olimpia arena. The 3,000 seater gym was packed to the rafters 2 hours before tip-off and another 2,000 fans watched on a big screen outside in the car-park. Ploiesti didn’t disappoint.
