Spartak-Primorie vs Krasnie Krilya Game Roundup #2

The 2nd game in the Russian League for us was against Krasnie Krilya at home. This game was a tough fought game. Which was close from beginning to the end. Spartak started off in front with a small lead of 44-40 going into halftime. Both teams played at a similar game tempo in the first half exchanging baskets but in the 2nd half the game slowed down.

Krasnie Krilya converted more baskets in the paint than we did and their shooting percentage was higher which allowed them to take the lead in the 4th quarter after we were leading most of the game.

We fought very hard played aggressive defense but did not convert on our shots in particular free-throws down the stretch. I missed 4 uncharacteristic free-throws in crucial moments of the game and I really let my team down. Our shoots weren’t falling as we want them to but that did not keep us out of the game we still had a chance to win the game but let it slip through our hands.  Krasnye Krylya finished out the game making a few big plays down the stretch to ultimately win 81-74.

Krasnie Krilya was led by Dragan Labovic with 23 points and 8 rebounds, Brion Rush with 14 points and 3 assists (including a crucial 3-pointer), Feder Likholitov with 13 points and 8 rebounds, and Ex-NBAer Jarvis Hayes with 10 points and 7 rebounds.

Spartak Primorie was led by Cuthbert Victor with 12 points and 8 rebounds, Jeleel Akindele with 11 points and 4 rebounds, and Myself with 21 points, 8 rebounds, and 4 steals.

The Vladivostok fans were great I want to thank you for the enthusiasm and energy. This was certainly a tough loss for Spartak but we will rebound from it. We will not be home until February as we are about to start on our 7 straight away games. We will need all your support as we move forward.


Spartak Primorie vs Unics Kazan Game Roundup #1

The First game of the 2011-2012 Russian League Season (PBL) vs Unics Kazan was a thriller!  Spartak Primorie is back in the top division of Russia and the first game was against a Euro-league team at home. In front of a packed crowd of about 2,000 fans Spartak Primorie took the game by storm from the beginning until the final buzzer. It was a great team effort we were able to convert baskets off our defense. Our transition game was working very well and we took a 51-39 lead into halftime.

In the 2nd half we maintained the lead playing very aggressive defense but Unics cut into the lead during the 4th quarter to make it a single digit deficit. Down the stretch we hit some big shots and got the defensive stops we needed in order to secure a huge 80-73 victory over Unics!

Unics Kazan was led by Terrel Lyday with 15 points, Henry Domercant with 13 points and 4 rebounds, and Mike Wilkinson with 10  Points for Spartak

Primorie was led by Evgeny Baburin with 11 points, Cuthbert Victor with 10 points and 8 rebounds, Jeleel Akindele with 13 points, and myself with 18 points, 11 assists, and 6 rebounds.

This was the first time Spartak Primorie has defeated Unics Kazan in a Russian League game so it felt great to be a part of history! I want to thank the fans for coming out and showing great support!
