A win is a win

We played Saturday at home against the 9th place team in the league.  Though we controlled a comfortable lead for the entire game, we only won by 3, 82-79.  The win keeps us tied for 5th place in the league with 3 games left before the 2nd half of the season starts.  To see the box score and recap click HERE.

Growin Pains..A loss in the MK Cup

27 01 2011

Sometimes 2 steps forward and 1 step back feels more like 2 steps forward and 5 steps back.  We lost last night in the Macedonian Cup which probably felt worse than what it was.  We had stretches of bad basketball mostly because of our 21 turnovers.  Going into the fourth quarter we were down 6 but ended up losing by 14. And since we only won by 2 at home, they advance.

Now we are ready to start the regular championship games this Saturday.  We have 4 more regular season games in this championship before it splits into 2 groups (the top 6 and the bottom 4).  Currently we are in 5th need to stay in the top 6!

Back with a Win

24 01 2011

After a great holiday break of seeing the family and visiting friends, I’m back in Macedonia.  We played our first game of the Macedonian Cup last night and won 62-60.  It was a great game because we showed character to win a close game against a good team even though we shot the ball poorly.  The way the Cup works is that we will now play the same team (Torus) on Wednesday at their place and the point spread determines who advances.  Meaning if we win or lose by less than 2, we will advance.

It feels great to be on the court and feel healthy!  No problems with the knee.  To see the box score click here!
