Barsy Atyrau returns to action against Teuta
The second set of games for BC Barsy Atyrau is about to get underway tonight. The team traveled to Albania in order to play another three matches in its debut in the Balkan League. Tonight at 19:00 local time in Durres the Kazakhstan team will meet KS Teuta. The game will be broadcast LIVE on Albanian National TV and SportMedia.tv.
BC Barsy made a lot of changes to the team since the first trip to Bulgaria in November. There is a new head coach in Arnis Vecvagars who comes with a good resume coaching also the national team of his native Latvia. There are also changes in the roster as six new players are expected to step on the court. The experienced Montenegrin Bojan Bakic is still here while the likes of Montrell Dixson, Arkadiy Mkrtychyan and Aragad Abramian are expected to contribute the most from the newcomers.
On the other side Teuta is in a run of three straight defeats and will look to stop it in its own gym. There are no changes to the team and again the likes of Eric Copes, Endrit Hysenagolli and CJ Wilson will look to provide the needed boost. Of course again Teuta will try to dominate under the basket as it has been during most of the team′s games. The team needs the win in order to boost its chances for the Final Four but the same goes for Barsy as well which means we are about to expect an interesting game.
