The LKL vice-champions started preparations for the new season

The vice-champions of the Lithuanian Basketball League (Betsafe-LKL) are currently training in ten teams – there are no Gyorgy Golomans and Kristians Kullamae, who work for the Hungarian and Estonian national teams, respectively.

“From the club’s point of view, we would like to have all the players in training, but for basketball players it is a great honor to defend and play for their country. I hope that they will reach the final 12 and play successfully in the European Championship,” said Mr. coach N. Čanakas.

“In the upcoming season, we will not change our style of play – we will start everything with aggressive defense and energy. I hope that we will be even more versatile and aggressive in defense than we were last season. “Gagicius gave us a lot in attack by playing under the basket, but with Griciūnas and Maldūnas, we will be able to be even more aggressive in defense”, said the strategist.

Meanwhile, one of the three remaining players in the team, Vytenis Lipkevičius, has an important message for everyone: “We need to forget what happened last season. We have to start all over again. Since we took the second place, no privileges are given to us. We are all in the same position at the starting line.”

During the preparation cycle, 7bet-Lietkabelis has already planned to play five friendly matches, the number of which should increase once the future opponents are agreed upon.
