And of course, his passing and scoring and rebounding ability’.

‘I am in a good situation, - said Marcus Goree, who is currently in the US. – CSKA is a good organization. I know the head coach of the team Ettore Messina from the time we spent in Treviso. He talked to me and told me several things about Moscow and the club. I guess it would be easy to become a part of the team’.
