Red Star Basketball Ready for Benetton

Red Star Basketball Ready for Benetton
Belgrade, Dec.2, 2009 (Serbia Today) - Red Star basketball team have been on a run of five consecutive wins – four in the regional NLB league and one in the Eurocup, now that have beaten Slovenia’s Domzale. Bearing in mind that Red Star was struggling in the opening weeks of the season when they hit rock bottom, the recent fine results have come as a ray of bright light for the trophy-studded Belgrade side.
The latest win at Domzale reaffirmed Red Star’s top position in the regional league, while Red Star is to take a similar round trip when they visit Treviso, Italy, for Tuesday’s Eurocup Group F against Benetton. Players feel that hard work earlier in the season is starting to pay off.
“We have a really tough match behind us. We are slowly finding our feet and mustering strength for the Treviso challenge. We’ve been working hard and it just had to bear fruit. Helios are a tough side, especially playing at home, and experienced, but we just couldn’t afford to lose again. This win is a confirmation that when we have our day in terms of shooting, we do possess the strength and quality to see through a game. We have put the game against the Slovenians behind us and are focusing on Benetton,” said Filip Videnov, one of Red Star’s heroes in the win at Domzale.
When asked how Red Star will fare in their upcoming match against Itlaian powerhouse Benetton, Videnov expressed hope.
“I believe we can get our hands on the win. Benetton have showed their quality this season when they beat Cholet Basket and they are a team who boast great tradition and quality. They are doing fine in the Italian championship and they beat Napoli at the weekend. However, we will be looking for our chance to upset them on their home turf and treat our fans to a win,” said Videnov.
