Nymburk – Nymburk basketball players in the Champions League third round achieved an important match with Keravnos and declassified the Cypriot opponent 96:69 at home. With 21 points, Retin Obasohan had the highest participation in the Central Bohemia team’s second victory in the basic group.
Nymburk started the game four days after salvaging some support in the domestic league, and after defeating USK, after more than two years and 93 wins, he lost a record-breaking series of invincibility. “It was signed 100% in preparation. Before the Champions League, it is different under normal circumstances, but this time it was clear to everyone that we want to enter it in a completely different way, ”said winger Vojtech Hruban.
As in the Prague match, Central Bohemia still missed Petr Šafarčík and Jerrick Harding today, but Obasohan, cured, returned to the team. And it was the Belgian team that took a lot of credit for the fact that the home team won the first half in 59:38.
Obasohan, who should compete against the Czech national team in qualifying for the European Championship on Sunday, scored 15 points. In addition, Nymburk made a good shot and in the opening act, the home team recorded a total of 13 3-pointers.
“We remember if anyone remembers when the team hit thirteen triples at half, which is a lot for the whole game. When I heard that, I was shocked, ”Hruban said. “But again, all the bullets were not difficult, because we ran a lot and they did not reach us,” he added.
The Cypriots won the third quarter at 18:13, but Nymburk did not allow the drama and in the end Keravnos defeated by 27 points of difference. In addition to Obasohan, Omar Prewitt (14), Hayden Dalton (16) and Vojtěch Hruban (16) also scored in double digits, adding eight assists.
Nymburk lost in previous matches in Dijon and after extra time beat Tofas Bursa. Keravnos, who advanced to the main stage from qualifying, lost for the third time. The next Champions League game awaits the Czech champions on December 15 in Cyprus.
“I would like to say that we are close to progress, but there is still a long way to go. We have played it well and in the second half we have more home games, but the next round is played in a month and then it is Completed in January. So nothing, it’s not safe and it’s open, because Keravnos, for example, showed much better basketball in previous games than with us, ”said center Petr Benda.
