CSKA lost the first position in the table of Russian superleague. The loss to UNICS 83-101 put the Army club on the second position.

UNICS - CSKA: 101-83

Ettore Messina, CSKA head coach:

- If it was a box game we should throw the white towel on the ring before the end of the game. UNICS was better then us in all the components of the play tonight. The only thing we can do is to congratulate the rival, the coaching staff and the supporters of their team with the win. CSKA is respected in Europe not only for the result but we take all the games serious. This one was not an exeption.My job is not to shout on the players but to understand the reason we played so tonight.
