Slam city as Lviv hoop heroes dunk past Simferopol
Ukraine was once one of the powerhouses of East European basketball, and there are signs that the domestic league is finally finding its feet after years in the post-Soviet doldrums. In the most recent Ukrainian NBA clash to take place in West Ukraine local Lviv side Polytechnika Halychyna cruised past Crimean outfit Gryphons Simferopol 98-77, thanks in no small part to the trickery of American import Nick Wilams and Ukrainian playmaker Yaroslav Zubritskiy. The next hoop action in Lviv will be on March 23 at the Halychyna Sport Palace (8 Kerchenska Street) at 18.00. For details please call +380322442692.
