Brno Focus on American Duo in Boncourt

16.11.2004

A Plus ZS Brno know they have it all to do if they are to spring an upset at Basket Club Boncourt on Wednesday with road victories in European basketball hard to come by.

That is especially true for Brno since Boncourt's American duo Yuanta Holland and Alonzo Richmond are in a rich vein of form.

Holland, a 2.02 m forward, has averaged 18.5 points in the first two games for the Swiss side while 1.93 m guard/forward Richmond has poured in 15 per contest.

"Americans Richmond and Holland are the most important players of Boncourt and I hope that we are well prepared to stop them," Brno's assistant coach Libor Jerabek said to www.basket.idnes.cz.

Each of the Central Conference Group B teams has a win and a defeat.

Boncourt may have a psychological edge as they won a game between the two sides last season.

"We want to keep our chances of advancing from our group alive," Jerabek said.

"Every team concentrates for home games but I think that we have a chance to win in Switzerland as well. We have to avoid our big mistakes which we made in a game in Lisbon.

"I expect an interesting game with many fans in attendance for the home team."
