UMMC Ekaterinburg basketball club wins the Russian Basketball Federation Super Cup
Iskander Makhmudov’s UMMC-sponsored basketball club defeated the Orenburg club “Nadezhda” during the Russian Basketball Federation (RBF) Super Cup’s final, thus becoming the first winner of the new Russian Cup, reports the Ural team press service.
The game took place in the main arena of the UMMC Sports Palace in Ekaterinburg and ended on a score of 93-68. The most outstanding player of the match was UMMC forward Emma Meesseman with 27 points and seven rebounds.
“This victory brought us a new title, and we love titles. The game in itself was very irregular. There were some good times and some crazy times. In the third quarter we had some stupid losses and one setback on defense. The main conclusion we drew from this game is that we have to play more consistently and even better”, – said UMMC Ekaterinburg’s coach Miguel Mendez.
