After defeating table-leader Crvena zvezda in the 21st round of the Adriatic league, in the last round of Eurocup's Last 32 campaign Cedevita will play against Lietuvos Rytas in Vilnius on Wednesday at 18:00CET.
In order to advance to Eurocup Eightfinals Cedevita must win.
Coach Jasmin Repesa: "This is a very important game for both teams. Lietuvos Rytas have a home court advantage. They have experienced some ups and downs during the season, just like us and this game will decide everything. We will play without injured Marino Bazdaric and Ante Delas, but we have already played some good games with depleted roster before. Lietuvos Rytas have great fans, which will create great atmosphere, but this is not our first game in front of a loud crowd. We have shown that we can play with anybody, but in order to win we must play focused the whole game."
Small forward Luka Babic: "Lithuania is a basketball country. Their teams always play in front of full arena and I like that. That will surely motivate us even more. We defeated Crvena Zvezda in the Adriatic League on last Sunday and that was very important for our self confidence. We will miss Bazdaric and Delas, but we were in the similar situation before when we played against Zaragoza in Spain and still managed to get a win. We must play team basketball and give our best to win."
