Sergio Scariolo, BC Khimki head coach:
-We treat with respect to “Universitet”. We saw the matches when this team fought against “dynamo” and CSKA. Today we played at offense. I am satisfied with our guys played in pass. I can mark in this component Delfino and Ponkrashov.
Today Maciej lampe got to the court. But he is far from ideal shape. Because of fouls of Mike Wilkinson Maciej forced to play much time than we planned before match.
