Today our team played the third game of Italian tour. Virtus has become another victim of the Euroleague champions.

The game was played on the court of new Futurshow Station - completely reconstructed famous Palamalaguti arena.

Virtus - CSKA: 58-73 (6-19, 16-20, 25-10, 11-24)

Virtus: Langford 14, Ford 13, Boykins 9...

CSKA: Holden (5), Langdon (8), Siskauskas (17), Smodis (4), Lorbek (20) - starting five; Morris (8), Zisis (6), Planinic (3), Savrasenko (2), Khryapa (0), Vorontsevich (0), Keyru (DNP).

Ettore Messina, CSKA head coach:

- It was a tough game against a very good team. We had an excellent start playing good 1st and 2nd quarters. But in the 3rd we allowed our opponents to shorten the gap to 2 points due to our bad defense and desire to shoot only three-pointers instead of our usual complete game. We had to overcome the difficulties showing good discipline and unselfishness.
