The time for the big final has come
29-04-2021 | 10:08We are just hours away from finishing the season in Delasport Balkan League. Tonight at 20:00 hrs the hosts of the Final Four Hapoel Holon will play BC Akademik Plovdiv in the game for the trophy. Before that starting from 17:30 Hapoel Gilboa Galil will take the court against BC Beroe in the game for 3/4 place. Both matches will be broadcast LIVE on RING Tv for Bulgaria, Sport 5 in Israel and on Delasport Balkan League YouTube channel.
Hapoel Holon and Akademik have already played twice this season as they were in the same group in Stage 2. The Israeli team was the winner both times but the first one was really hard. That of course won't count for nothing tonight as it's a one game, it's a final and the stakes are different.
Holon will surely count on the great support of its fans. That was visible also during the semifinal and was addressed by Isaiah Miles following the win. With the deep roster Hapoel is having, they'll try to set the tone early, to play aggressively and control the game against the Bulgarian side. Miles, Harris, Sestina and Johnson are expected to have the main role on the court but the experience of Pnini, the shooting of Bourdillon and the hard work of McGee are also something to watch for.
Akademik has already wrote a new chapter in the team's history by reaching the final. The Plovdiv team will hope to now make the upset and leave with the trophy. Of course the task will be really hard as they'll play against a great team with a very good support but Akademik will not give up without a fight. Vucica, Tomic and Gugino under the basket together with Nikolov, Carson and Bachev in the backcourt are the ones that will need to make things happen for the Bulgarian team. If they are on a good day then Akademik will have a chance.
