BC Tsmoki Minsk oust Finnish club Bisons in VTB United League

The basketball club Tsmoki Minsk celebrated the second victory in a row in the VTB United League. After the victory over Red October on March 22, coach Igor Grischuk's charges defeated Finland's Bisons Loimaa. 

The date against "buffalos" in October was one of Tsmoki's most unsuccessful matches of the season. That was a painful defeat with a goal difference of 23 points.

Pavel Ulyanko, player of BC Tsmoki Minsk:
Now every game adds motivation, we want to win as many games as possible. I think that we lost our opportunities this season. It was noted that the team play pretty aggressively in a team-like way.

The meeting at Minsk Arena was hard and intriguing. The opponents had a nervous ending in which Pavel Ulyanko first became the team's hero and then committed an unnecessary foul which resulted in  three accurate throws by Nikkarinen, which sent the game into overtime. But there, Tsmoki beat the opponents without problems..

The final victory is 93:82. Tsmoki will play the next game away against Kalev (Estonia) on 31 March.
