The BIG Final preview: We′ll have a first time winner
The season in the Balkan League will end tonight. In the BIG Final we′ll see two teams who are in such a place for the first time - KK Blokotehna-NB and KS Teuta. They will square off at 19:00 hrs local time in Albania as the game will be broadcast LIVE on Albanian Natiional TV and SportMedia.tv.
For both sides it′s a historical moment as this is their first ever international final. It′s not a secret that both entered the semifinals not as favorites but gave their 100% and deserved to be in the final.
Despite the injury problems Blokotehna managed to overcome Academic Bultex 99. Three of the players spent 40 minutes on the court so it will be important to see whether they have recovered well enough. Of course Mladenovikj and Penn will be the once leading the other but for the team to have a success, all the roster will have to step up.
On Teuta′s side it′s no different. The rotation is not so deep but whoever was on the court gave it his maximum. CJ Wilson led the team but everybody who entered the game contributed and this should be the case tonight. There′s no doubt that Teuta will fight hard again and will give its best in order to leave the trophy in Albania. And also there′s no doubt that we′ll be in for an interesting game in which both sides will want to win badly and will entertain the fans.
Before the final, at 16:00 hrs local time, the two Bulgarian teams - BC Beroe and BC Academic Bultex 99 will meet in the 3/4 place game. Of course the dissapointment in both sides will be big enough but they′ll have to overcome it and try to give their all to win.
