Azomash Change Squad

03 February 2006

Ukrainian side Azovmash have made some changes to their squad following their elimination from the EuroCup this week.

Two of their international guards, Israel's Lior Lubin and Serbia & Montenegro's Miroslav Beric, have left the club, with Greek floor general Panagiotis Liadelis arriving as a replacement.

Liadelis spent last season at Apollon, where he averaged 18.5 points per game.

Azovmash coach Rimas Girskis hinted more signings were on the way, saying: "We'll continue searching for new players. We particularly need an experienced center."

The Mariupol outfit were knocked out of the EuroCup by the narrowest of margins on Tuesday.

Despite beating Privatbank EKA AEL Lemesos 97-88, they were eliminated on points difference, with DKV Joventut and BC Khimki progressing instead.

Azovmash will now turn their attentions to the Ukrainian Superliga, a tournament in which they remain unbeaten as they fight BC Kyiv for the title.
