Much has changed, one could say – everything has changed, but the Sports Palace is the same. Basketball has changed, the person changing teams – age players leave, they are replaced by young guys. But here every time a pleasure to come back and play for the national team.

How did you play against Coloma and Rodriguez? This is a very experienced players, both play in the Euroleague. Rodriguez is one of the best point guards in Europe. But our defenders of the first and second numbers, coped with the task, did not give them to roam, to conduct the game and make free throws. Hence the winning result.

We still have two days before the match with Montenegro. We arrive, get some rest, have some training and will prepare for the next opponent. I think the reserve strength of the team is,” – said Mikhailyuk.
