It was an evening for Bears... for Bakken Bears to be more precise!
Here a quick video interview with Bakken Bears head coach Ville Tuominen, the Finnish coach of Danish team Bakken Bears. Helped by his knowledge of many of Kataja players - and a good core of players, the Danish champions are 2-0 in the group in EuroChallenge.
Even if I was working for the Finnish clients at the game, I could not resists grabbing few words with Ville after the game - and he was more than happy to talk to me, and who wouldn't after his team scored over 100 points in their home opener for 2013 EuroChallenge.
Interview is in Finnish - sorry to disappoint all the English or Danish readers who've made it here.
Apart from all the traffic jams in the UK, Germany or Denmark.. or the delayed flights, or the couple of days without having a proper meal.. I did enjoy my visit to Bears. Friendly club and great support from the fans during the game.. good luck to you in the remaining games in EuroChallenge, and who knows - we might meet again!
For now - I'll leave basketball for the rest of the week, and shift focus to covering football for the next four days : Women's Champions League, U21 Euro qualifying and Wales vs Finland. But don't worry, I'll be back to the more usual basketball next week.. with a trip to Romania, meeting friends on and off the court!
