BC Kalev/Cramo started their VTB season in Krasnador, where they faced one of the league’s favourites. The hosts did not hold back and crushed BC Kalev/Cramo 114:51. Frank Elegar played well for Kalev/Cramo scoring 16 points and grabbing 9 rebounds. Six players from Lokomotiv-Kuban scored in double digits.
BC Kalev/Cramo struggled with turnovers, they made 21 against opponents 6, also they were outrebounded 41:30 by Lokomotiv-Kuban. Coach Varrak commented the game: ” We were not ready for the game. To play Pärnu one day and face a team who wants to win VTB League and Eurocup next is hard. We need to be more prepared for games to stay on our course. We knew that they like to play press a lot and play fast, but we were not able to keep them from playing their game from the tip-off. ”
Next sunday BC Kalev/Cramo will play in Russia against local Euroleague team Nizni Novgorod.
