Zenit BC Head Coach Xavier Pascual:
I would like to wish all the best to Zielona Gora. It was a game in which we played seriously both in defense and offence from the very beginning. The concentration did not leave our players, so we increased the advantage. This victory is very important in our crazy schedule, but now we are getting ready for Tsmoki-Minsk,
On February 17, in Minsk, Zenit will play against Tsmoka in a VTB United League match. The next home game of Zenit in the Euroleague will be played on February 25 against Barcelona. Tickets on sale at tickets.bc-zenit.com
