Maxim Uchaykin, Zenit-M Head Coach:

MBA-2 is an absolute leader of the championship. The average age of the team is slightly higher than ours, most guys have been playing together for several years, so they know each other well. It is impossible to single out one person in the front or back lines, but this is the main advantage of the team. We have to play very smart on every bit of the court, and it will also require maximum dedication.
