Kelly McCarty – best player of February19 march 2009

The BC Khimki forward Kelly McCarty was named the best player of February by the version of oldest sportsdaily “Sovietsky sport”. We congratulate our captain on this title and wish him to continue to gladden fan’s hearts by good performance.

After it journalists asked some questions to McCarty:

Kelly, congratulations! The coaches of Superleague named you best player of month!

— Thank you. It is flattering for me, but now it so not so important. This season is the most difficult in my career. We have a good team, with the players of high level, the friendly atmosphere, the brilliant coach. But we can’t find our basketball philosophy. A team is in fever. We can crash “Maroussi”, to offer resistance against CSKA during 3 quarters, but the defeat in matches against “Lokomotiv” and “Ural-Great” are misunderstandings. Of course, we have injured players. We will summon our strength and will try to win “Final Eight”.

BC Khimki will face in ¼ of finals the Spanish “Pamesa” – the very strong team.

— We are preparing for this match. We hunger for big victories. All players with injuries will get rehabilitated till Turin. We have faith in our team, our coach.
