THE TAKE

This clash between champions of Spain and Poland also pits an undefeated side against a winless side. Barcelona as impressed so far this season even with injuries, as the likes of Alex Abrines and Tibor Pleiss have produced off the bench. In fact last week Barca’s reserves outscored the starters 30-48. PGE Turow has two of the league’s top performers this season in shooting guard Mardy Collins and big man Damian Kulig. Strong play from point guard Tony Taylor and the recent signing of forward Chris Wright give Coach Rajkovic weapons to play with. Taylor will be tested by the savvy Marcelinho Huertas, while Collins will need to shake Brad Oleson and Abrines at shooting guard. Kulig might face his biggest challenge yet in Justin Doelmann. Turow center Ivan Zigeranovic must hold his own against Ante Tomic and Pleiss for the visitors to have a chance. Barcelona is naturally the favorite at home, but Turow has shown great fighting spirit so far.

Quotes Head Coaches

PASCUAL, XAVI
FC Barcelona
"PGE Turow is a new challenge for us. They are an opponent that comes from two straight losses, but they have always been in the fight for the win. They play also all kinds of defense well. After having won in Milan, this home game is very important for us. Turow will be a difficult opponent and much more demanding than what people think. My players will need an extra effort to know who they are playing against. Navarro has been practicing with the group and he might be able to play some. In any case, he won't have many minutes, he's not ready yet."
RAJKOVIC, MIODRAG
PGE Turow Zgorzelec
"It is always special feeling to play in such a basketball country as Spain. This feeling is even stronger when I think about playing against Barcelona. A lot of times I said that being among such famous teams in such a difficult group means a lot to us but now we have to show that we can play with them on similar level and actually compete with them. On the other hand, we are obliged to do it because I feel truly honored to represent Poland in Euroleague. Tomorrow we will try our best to be tough opponent to Barcelona and I am sure we will fight till the end to get a win and this clash will give fans a lot of emotions and will benefit us as a team in experience at the highest level."

Players

LAMPE, MACIEJ

COLLINS, MARDY
PGE Turow Zgorzelec
"We have to come out on the court focused and motivated to be able to compete with Barcelona. It is the highest time we get a win. We will play hard, play our best and we will see what happens."
