    So, not a surprise: CSKA winning the VTB Promo Tournament.

    Final
    CSKA - Khimki 70:66
    CSKA: Victor Khryapa 15/5 rebounds/3 assists, Trajan Langdon 13, JR Holden 13
    Khimki: Milt Palacio 19/4 assists, Vitaly Fridzon 12, Mike Wilkinson 10/6 rebounds

    Game for 3rd place
    BC Kiev - Dynamo 86:73
    BC Kiev: Manuchar Markoishvili 28/5 rebounds, Kenan Bajramovic 15/6 rebounds, Alex Scales 11/7 rebounds/4 assists
    Dynamo: Travis Hansen 15, Sergey Bykov 14, Bostjan Nachbar 13/6 rebounds

    Game for 5th place
    Zalgiris - Azovmash 82:78
    Zalgiris: Jonas Maciulis 20, Dainius Salenga 20, Paulius Jankunas 15/15 rebounds
    Azovmash: Uchenna Nsonwu 20/11 rebounds, Simonas Serapinas 18, Khalid El-Amin 15

    Game for 7th place
    ASK Riga - Prokom 76:56
    Riga: Bruno Sundov 23/13 rebounds, Kaspars Kambala 23/8 rebounds, Aigars Vitols 10
    Prokom: Filip Dylewicz 10/6 rebounds, Alexey Nesovic 10, Ronnie Burrell 9/8 rebounds

    As I am hearing, attendance was minus 12 in average. Or was that the weather?

    I hope that Maccabi will play in this league. it's about the time for Maccabi to quit from the IBL once for ever.

    EL and the new VTB good enough to Maccabi.

    I think VTB is supposed to be new EL, or EL-east

    Again this nonsense? Get it into your head once and for all-no team can quit its national league and still play at ULEB competitions-period.

    According to zalgiris.lt, from next season, league will be organized as a championchip with regular season, final 4. There will be 8 teams: Žalgiris Kaunas, CSKA Moscow, Khimki Moscow region, Uniks Kazan, Azovmash Mariupol, Donetsk, VEF Riga. 8th team should become Asseco Prokom, Kalev Tallin or Rock Tartu.
    System: will be 2 groups, with 4 teams in each group. Every team will play 6 games in regular season, then 2 best team from each groups will go to Final 4, which should be arranged in February.

    Kalev's manager confirmed to Estonian media that they are interested in joining, however nothing is certain because they are still negotiating.
    Getting a place in VTB League would most probably mean that they wouldn't participate in EuroChallenge (if thats still the name), which seems like a reasonable decision by the club's management.

    Anyways, I'd be very surprised if an Estonian team would be chosen.

    BC Kalev/Cramo got the final, 8th, place. The group draw will apparently take place in few weeks.

    VTB league does a terrible job of promoting itself.

    I mean there is no dedicated web site , let alone on-line PBP and statistics

    Although the games' calendar can be found in the deeps of Russian Basketball Federation , but only in the Russian language section of the site

    The competition is supposed to be international , but somehow English section isn't updated from the last year VTB Promo

    The games start in 3 days :

    14.10 VEF (Riga) - UNICS (Kazan)
    15.10 BK Donetsk (Donetsk) - Chimki (Moscow)
    15.10 CSKA (Moscow) - Zalgiris (Kaunas)
    15.10 Kalev (Tallinn) - Azovmach (Mariupol)

    Why to bother? If you will play good, you won't need to complain about referees.

    If there would be any links of Žalgiris- CSKA tonight, that could be a good place for the links I know Lithuanian SPORT 1 will broadcast, unfortunately I'm out of CCTV (or other stuff required).

    nice allround game for him..
    Unics started kind of slow (only won by 4 against VEF Riga away and by 6 against Enisey at home) into the season but now it looks like their coach put everything were it is supposed to be..
    with CSKA being weaker then in previous years and Khimki still looking for their gameplan Unics could actually grab something more then a cup competition this year..

    Why isn't Rytas playing there? Weren't they invited or did they decline the invitation? How about next year?
    Rytas didn't show interest in it
