This Wednesday, 9th of October at 19:30, Asseco Arka Gdynia will play their first 7DAYS EuroCup match on the home turf of Gdynia Arena in the 2019/2020 season. Unicaja Baloncesto Malaga will be the opponent. One should also note that on that day, two Polish representatives will compete - Adam Waczyński (Unicaja) and Adam Hrycaniuk (Asseco).
The guests will be led by an experienced coach Luis Casimiro, and are 14th in the ACB league with 2 losses and 1 victory, but did manage to defeat Buducnost Voli Podgorica (83:70) in the cup last time.
Gdynia, under coach Przemysław Frasunkiewicz's leadership, have noted three victories so far against PGE Spójnia Stargard (76:65), Trefl Sopot (87:660 and Oldenburg Ewe Baskets (78:74).
Malaga's champion, both in the league as in the cup, is the US player Josh Adams (15 points, 3 rebounds, 2 assists), who excels at throwing three point shots. He is supported by the 208 cm center from Ukraine, Volodymyr Herun (19 points, 2 rebounds, 3 steals, 1 block), who also adds to the equation his 90% accuracy in free throws. The Spaniards also have Jamie Fernandez (8 points, 6 assists), forwards Carlos Suarez (9 points, 6 rebounds, 1 assist, 1 steal), US center Deon Thompson (6 points, 4 rebounds, 3 assists, 1 block), Alberto Diaz (8 points, 3 rebounds, 2 assists) and the Polish super scorer Adam Waczyński (5 points, 2 rebounds, 1 assist, 1 steal).
Unicaja has a very strong, even composition, with the players benefiting from a lot of offensive strength, mobility and universality. On the other hand, Arka plays a tough, team based basket with a couple of players who can surprise with their sudden attacks.
One Adam versus another in the main roles and a lot of excitement coming right up. Please join us on the 9th of October at 19:30 at Gdynia Arena. We are Asseco!
