BIO: Come back of the hungarian team which played the ultimate EuroBasket in 1999; the splendor of 1950s – when they won the competition in Budapest – are distant, but in the latest five years the hungarian basketball has known a development and the come back to EuroBasket may be a confidence boost for the local basketball. The two best players are clearly Adam Hanga, one of the best defender in european basketball, and the “scorer” Vojvoda to whom we have to add the naturalised DeAndre Kane, just signed by Maccabi Tel Aviv; the remainder of the roster does not present pretentious names but the experience of the point-guard Wittman and the kilos of Keller are precious as well as the energy from the bench by Zoltan Perl, young shooting-guard already seen in Capo d'Orlando and Treviso. It’s difficult to dream big but a short possibility to go to Istanbul has been given by the benevolent draw

QUALIFIED: Winning the group G in the last summer without any defeat despite the presence of Great Britain and FYROM

EYES ON: Adam Hanga; of course he is the star of the hungarian team, and in the last summer he has dragged Hungary to EuroBasket 2017 (19,5 points, 7,2 rebounds and 4,5 assists). Known mainly as a great defender, with the prize of EuroLeague in last season, with the national team he has also to guarantee a high number of points, to try to pass the first phase

CALENDAR: in Cluj Napoca: 01/09 vs Croatia – 02/09 vs Montenegro – 04/09 vs Czech Republic – 05/09 vs Romania – 07/09 vs Spain
