The third set of games of Barsy starts in Plovdiv
BC Barsy Atyrau is in Bulgaria for its third set of games in the Balkan League. The Kazakhstan team will visit Academic Bultex 99 tonight at 19:30 local time (18:30 CET). The match will be broadcast LIVE on YouTube ad SportMedia.tv.
With a win tonight Academic will qualify for the Final Four. This means that the Plovdiv side will give it all in order to secure its place in the Finals with two more games to play. To do that they′ll once again count on the scoring of Bachev and Knight and will hope to dominate under the basket. The previous meeting between those teams was really one-sided but that doesn′t mean that Academic should underestimate the one tonight.
Barsy comes to this match with some changes in the roster adding the Americans Chris McEachin and Donte McGill who will make his debut. They will try to help the likes of Bakic, Abramian, Mkrtychyan and Ivanov who all performed well the last time for Barsy. The Kazakhstan team still has some chances to reach the Final Four but to keep them will have to win at least 2 games this week, and one of them needs to be against Blokotehna. That′s why they′ll try hard tonight and if everything clicks well, they are in with a chance.
