CSKA in Istanbul: the summer in December
Today in the morning CSKA went to Istanbul in order to play the sixth game in the Euroleague against Ulker. This time the team went to the desired direction by the regular flight that made the trip a bit longer then usual. The team left USH CSKA at 11.00 and came up to the hotel at 18.00 (local time).

There are 12 players at CSKA roster. They are forwards Sergey Panov, David Vanterpool, nikita Kurbanov, Matjaz Smodis, centers David Andersen, Alexey Savrasenko, Anatoly Kashirov, guards Theodoros Papaloukas, Jon Robert Holden, Trajan Langdon, Zakhar Pashutin, Vasily Zavoruev.

Before this trip the weather in the cities CSKA traveled to was more or less comparable to the one in Moscow. Istanbul became an exception. It is +15 in here and the weather made the Army club players to leave their jackets in the hotel rooms and to go to the evening practice lightly dressed.

The main CSKA goal in the game according to the head coach of the team Ettore Messina words would be to deal with the rival’s motivation. Ulker goal this season is at least to go to the Top 16. But as for now it is a hard task as the team has 1 win in five games. An of course there would be some things to prove for Ulker forward Mirsad Turkcan who spent in CSKA the 2003/04 season.
