Player of Grodno Valiantsina Myshapud:

- The tournament was great. We are glad that we managed to win. Perhaps the most difficult match for us was in the semifinals. Nevertheless, we managed to overcome some difficulties and reached the final, where our opponents were less experienced players. Congratulations to all the girls with the victory, and opponents - with a good game.

Executive Director of basketball federation Nastassia Marynina:

On June 16, 12 men's teams entered the competition for the championship awards.  The tournament also consisted of two stages – group and playoffs. The teams were divided into 4 quartets (3 in each) and held 2 matches, following which the 2 strongest squads from each group took place in the quarterfinals. From pool A in the playoffs came "Rosenergoatom" and "Koni" - they had a powerful meeting with each other (21:18 in favor of "Rosenergoatom") and knocked out PasTeam, the guys from which replaced a team from Vitebsk, which could not take part in competition due to sudden technical problems. No wonder the guys at PasTeam were not ready for challenge with rivals of such a high level. But in group B confrontation during the playoffs was overdramatic. In the beginning, "Belarus 1" beat "Slovechno" (20:16), and then "Slovechno" in the last seconds snatched victory from "Brest Archers" - 16:14. The “archers” had a chance to escape, but in the final match they lost to the opponents (12:22).

An excellent game was between the leaders of the group C – "Bricks" and "Yugo-Vostok". Until the last moments it was not clear who will win but "Bricks" ended the game with an accurate throw – 21:20. Unfortunately, the third team of the pool – U-18 – could not make it and lost in both match, finishing the performance at the tournament.

The leader of group D was "Mr.Magic" confidently outplayed "Gomelvodokanal" and "Yankies-GrSU". Team from Grodno failed to make it to the playoffs, giving the second ticket to the quarter-finals to the rivals from Gomel.


Unfortunately, there was a lack of intrigue in the first two matches of the quarterfinal round. "Belarus 1" left no chances or "Gomelvodokanal" to win (22:7), and "Rosenergoatom" beat out "Southeast" (21:11). But it was interesting to watch the two following meetings. "Mg.Magic" has been the leader so long and "Slovechno" were able to equalize the score thanks to a 4th times triple-point shot in a row performed by Andrei Stabrouski. Nevertheless "Mr.Magic" reached the semi-finals thanks to the victory in overtime – 21:19. "Koni" from Mogilev, with the help of Artsiom Malkou from "Borisfen", to the last struggled with "Bricks", but couldn’t make it to the victory – 19:16.

Suddenly the difference in the scores was noticeable in the semifinals. "Rosenergoatom" quickly got lots of fouls and "Belarus 1" showed the great result and reached the final (21:11). In the second match "Mr.Magic" confidently broke the resistance of "Bricks", prematurely ending the game with a major victory – 21:13.

Mr Magic 16 06 19

"Mr.Magic" was not a favorite of the final, tried to make its best with the help of long shots, but "Belarus 1" tried to make it as difficult as possible for the opponents on the three-point arc. Under the basket the "Belarus 1" had a tangible advantage in growth. At the same time "Belarus 1" did not hesitate to shoot from afar. "Mr.Magic" resisted to the last, but failed to build a defense against the powerful attack of the national team - 14:21.

The winners of the tournament were awarded with special prizes from the BBF’s partner - Desnogorsk basketball Association "Sports training center for basketball players". Also, the third place winner "Rosenergoatom was awarded by the General Director of CSPB Sergei Fomin.


“Belarus 1” had a powerful attack indeed: on average the team scored 21.2 points in the tournament despite the fact that it was enough to gain only 21 points to win. 2 games were finished with 22 points and only one meeting against the "Slovechno" they scored 20 points.
