CSKA players in the NT: 73 points in two games
Despite good CSKA players performance Russian NT lost to Czech Republic two friendly games in a row (97-69 and 80-63). The Army club players stats is: Alexey Savrasenko (20 points in the first game, 10 – in the 2nd), Vladimir Dyachok (14, 17) and Zakhar Pashutin (4, 8). These games were the first since the NT started to prepare for the European championship in Serbia.
After NT came back to Moscow Alexey Savrasenko gave a small interview to our web-site.

- Before the games we had a training camp in the mountains. It takes a player about 3 days to get used to the normal climate after that. But we had to play during this 3 days period, that is the reason why we could not show our best despite the fact we are in a good condition.

Are you happy to become the best scorer in the first game?

- Yes. It was the first game of the new season so it is a great deal to score 20 point on a very start. But it is a pity that Russia lost it.

Russian NT had a lot of excuses for loosing these two games. When do you think the results can be taken seriously?

- I guess at the tournament in Istanbul. By the time the players who are absent now would join us and we would be able to perform better as a team.

What can you say about the performance of your new teammate Vladimir Dyachok?

- He is a very talented player. His style of playing clearly reminds me of Sergey Monya and Victor Khryapa. He is very fast and has a good shooting ability.
