BC Balkan defeated Maccabi Next Urban Haifa at home to stay in second place in Group A of Delasport Balkan League. Here is what head coach Nebojsa Vidic said once the game finished:

“We beat them with a system, by staying stuck to the game plan. I told the players two things - that both teams played games two days ago so it is about who is going to keep a better focus and who is going to want the win more. I think in both conditions we were better.

Having a high percentäge from the 3-point line was important of course, but we were up only by 2 after the first quarter. I don’t think that this determines the winner but it helps. When you open the game well, it is a sign that the team is focused and knows what we want.

They did not surprise us, we watched Maccabi. I just wanted to tell the people from Botevgrad that they could watch a team with two NBA players, experienced ones. One of them is the son of the famous Glen Rice. I am not sure that this has happened before not only for Balkan but Levski as well.

We were more focused on Kwame Vaughn in the 4th quarter, we did not let him to have open views, because he is definitely a game changer with 3 point shooting, with everything. He is able to score in very different ways. I think we controlled him the last quarter. Last 5 minutes he was under control.

We can’t keep this focus and intensity on the next game and we are gonna look for help from the young players.”
