“During the Russian Cup match against Zenit, MBA basketball players lacked charisma” – Vasily Karasev

MBA Basketball Club Head Coach Vasily Karasev called out the reasons why his team failed to beat Zenit in the semi-final game of the Final Four of the Winline Cup of Russia.

Zenit beat MBA on Friday with a score of 87:77 (17:11, 19:22, 19:29, 32:15).

— It is clear that somewhere they are unhappy with the result. We spoke with the guys that in the Final Four, it’s all about one game. And here, in the first place, it’s not so much tactics as charisma and the desire to win. Unfortunately, not everyone had it. I had to rotate myself. As a result, in the end, of course, there wasn’t enough physics. In the fourth quarter, the opponent launches 18 faults, we have three. What kind of victory can we talk about here.

— Can the first three quarters, after which the IBA were leading, be counted as assets?

– In places. But we have to continue the game for 40 minutes, and we had failures. And then we had to beat Zenit, a team in their own right, where people went through national teams and the Final Four. We only had the two of us. I haven’t gotten over the excitement a bit.

– Three matches in five days – a heavy load?

Not heavy, but crazy. According to the schedule, it is very difficult to play every other day with travel. You need to have serious bench depth to withstand that,” the correspondent reports, in Karasev’s words.

The Russian Cup final takes place in Saint Petersburg from March 17-19.
