UNICS Head Coach Dimitris Priftis has commented on the victory over Avctodor in the VTB United League regular championship match (76:63) and talked about the difficult preparations of Kazan team for the season and the game of Moris Ndour, the forward and the new guard Errick Mc Collum.

“I am glad that we won the first home game of the season. Most of the match, we were serious about the game. But in the end we relaxed. I expected this. Nothing wrong. Today we played every player in the lineup. Some wanted to give a rest - such an opportunity does not appear often. Now we need to recover before the next week. It will be difficult. On Wednesday, we play with Lietuvos Rytas, on Sunday - with Lokomotiv-Kuban.

“I am glad we have won in the first domestic game of the season. The major part of the game was taken very seriously. But by the end we got relaxed. I have expected this. It’s ok. Today every player of the team has performed. To some of them I wanted to give a little rest as such opportunity occurs rarely. Right now we need to recover before the next week, it is going to be tough. On Wednesday we are playing with Lietuvos Rytas and on Sunday with Lokomotiv-Kuban.

- How did you like the game of Ndour, do you think his successful game is connected with the fact with Lasme has left?

- I don’t think it is due to departure of Stephane Lasme. A big role was played by the fact that he has been with the team for two years now. We have got to know each other better. He keeps up with his responsibilities. We hope to preserve the same good level of performance that he has now.

- Who is injured in the team at the moment?

- Preparation for the season has been difficult. Many players were missing due to injuries, including Henry and Morgan for a very long time. Henry is the key player for us. Right now he is gradually recovering. Morgan has not resolved his problem yet, he was playing today in the same condition. During the last game of the Gomelskiy Cup against Olympiacos we have lost two players. Ejim is not ready to return yet. At the last momet turned out Ponkrashav is having back problems. Hopefully Anton will be able to play on Wednesday.
