Less than a month ago both of the teams met in the first fight of the National Championship. In that game Sumykhimprom won with 19 point margin.
From the beginning tonight it seemed that MBC ODESSA was on track for victory. The biggest contrast from the last game were the "big" players. Banev scored not only the first 4 points, but also took most of the rebounds. In defence Zubrytskyy made a couple of very important steals while on the perimeter Tkach and Annyenkov were hot for 3-points shooting.
