Beroe going for 8 in a row, Barsy needs to win
Tonight at 19:30 local time in Stara Zagora (18:30 CET) BC Beroe will host BC Barsy Atyrau. The match will be the second of this set of games for the Kazakhstan team which lost to Academic Bultex 99 yesterday. The match will be broadcast LIVE on the internet and will be available on YouTube and SportMedia.tv.
Yesterday′s result meant that Beroe is now qualified for the Final Four. The Stara Zagora team cannot move lower than the fourth position which is of course a good news for the team. They are in a tough schedule recently as it will be the fourth game in 9 days for them. Beroe is still missing Conner Frankamp and Dallin Bachynski so the question is if they′ll be ready to play tonight. If they are absent again the offense will fall on the hands of Stoyanov, Coggins, White and Yanev who will have to step up.
Barsy on the other side played a good game against Academic and the good thing for the team is that it′s showing improvent in each match since the start of the season. The Kazakhs did well for most of the time except for the final few minutes of the third quarter when they practically lost the contest. Tonight they′ll try to keep their focus for longer period of time and will hope to achieve a better result. Bakic, Mkrtychyan, Abramian and Ivanov are the players in good form recently while the newly signed McGill and McEachin should also be able to help even more after getting more time with their teammates. The visitors will give their all to win the game as only in this way they can keep their Final Four hopes alive.
