“After the victory over the MBA, we feel neither joy nor euphoria” – Zenit basketball player Kulagin

Zenith basketball player Dmitry Kulagin explained, therefore, the “blue-white-blue” did not experience great joy after defeating the MBA in the semifinal match of the “Final Four” Winline Cup of Russia.

The meeting in Saint Petersburg ended with the score of 87:77 (17:11, 19:22, 19:29, 32:15).

– I will say it right away, I will say it directly and I will say it as frankly as possible – we are here in this Final Four to win the Russian Cup. After the semi-final victory over the MBA, there is no feeling of joy or euphoria. Because only the first step towards the goal has been taken.

– The first three quarters were not easy for Zenit – at the last break you were under the score. What is the reason?

– Let’s face it, Vasily Karasev’s teams always show aggressive basketball and show non-standard basketball with a large number of strokes. The guys are young, loaded, they know their job. It was not so easy for us to enter the rotation, since only two foreign players can play in the Cup. But that’s by no means an excuse. Somehow we were able to take control of the rebound on offense, score our shots, actively engage in defense, which ultimately led to the win,” the correspondent reports as per the About Kulagin.
