Today will start the Final 4 of EUROHOLD Balkan League. The first semifinal is BC Levski - BC Balkan while the second one is the hosts KB Sigal Prishtina against BC Galil Gilboa. Here are some words from the coaches before the semifinals:     Sharon Drucker, head coach of BC Galil Gilboa: "We are happy to be here. It′s my first time in this league but I followed it and I see it′s getting better and better. I think we did a good regular season and the goal for us is also to finish first in the Final 4. We are ahead of a big weekend with four good teams. We′ll try our best to win the cup again."     Konstantin Papazov, head coach of BC Levski: "I′m very happy because this is my fifth Final 4 in a row. I think this finals will be the best because the atmosphere is great, the fans are unbelievable. We came here with one goal - to win the competition. I respect all the teams that are here. No team has serious advantage over the other. Galil came with big self-confidence and as a champion. The hosts have great coach, amazing fans and very good players. We have our big experience while Balkan′s coach Aleksandar Todorov has the qualities to do anything against any opponent."     Aleksandar Todorov, head coach of BC Balkan: "It′s a pleasure to be here because it′s the first Final 4 for Balkan. It′s the team′s second participation in the competition but the first time they got only one victory while now we have 11. For me personally this is the second Final 4 and I hope it to be so successful as the first one. For this to happen we have to defeat a very good team in the semifinal. Our two teams know each other very well and we cannot surprise us."     Marin Dokuzovski, head coach of KB Sigal Prishtina: "I expect these days to be a feast of basketball and the gym to be full. I know very well EUROHOLD Balkan League since it started I think from year to year it′s getting better - regarding the organization and the quality of the teams. I believe that present in this Final 4 are the four best teams. I think for Sigal is a big success that is in the Final 4 in its first year of the competition. I think to our advantage are our fans who I believe will support us to the very last minute. We are going to give our all and will fight until the last second."
