Our Scolaires finish 18th place in Courtrai (B)!

On day 1, after tough first quarter against Antwerp Giants from Belgium (6-23), the rest of the game was a great fight, all players stood up the very best they can and as an outcome of it, we won the 3 remaining quarters by 47-45. A respectful 53-68 loss against (probably) the best U-17 team in Belgium.

Game 2 was closer against Den Bosch (NL), but ended with a narrow 62-63 overtime loss.

Games 3 & 4 were won, 75-41, against Hanau White Wings (D) resp. Almonte Eindhoven (NL), 79-60. The last game was lost against Sparta Bertrange (67-80).

ZAZA Pachulia Academy won the U-17 event, while the Antwerp Giants finished 3rd. Having our boys in this tournament was an excellent & priceless experience.

More game reports will follow, so stay tuned!

Many thanks to the team, the parents & of course coach Nenad for their compassion & pictures! We also thank our youth sponsor den Atelier who made this trip possible!
