Another home start
A month after official season started our team will play its first home game at USH CSKA. One of the VTB League leaders Zenit comes to Moscow.

“We face the team that plays very serious basketball in both VTB League and EuroCup recent years,” CSKA head coach Dimitris Itoudis said. “So we expect a difficult game, especially after tough games that we played down the stretch. We have to be focused, determined and decisive because Zenit plays aggressive basketball.”

Pavel Korobkov and Joel Freeland continue their post-surgery rehab.
