ANOTHER EUROPEAN APPOINTMENT FOR VASSALLO

Malta's international basketball referee Bernard Vassallo received a further FIBA Europe nomination for this coming week, just days after a game in Turkey last Thursday.

In fact Vassallo will travel to the Czech Republic this week so that, on Wednesday 28th January, he will referee the game valid from Group A of the FIBA EuroLeague which will be played in the Sportovni Hala Kralovka in Prague between hosts USK Prague and the current European champions Galatasaray from Turkey.

With three days to go to the end of the group stage, both teams are desperate for a win as there is a big tussle for the last two of the four spots available for qualification from this group to the quarter finals.

Prague are presently joint third with four wins whilst Galatasaray, who had a tough start as defending champions with an initial four straight defeats, have three wins.

The officiating crew for this game, apart from Vassallo who is the crew chief, will consist of Johannes Sarekoski (Finland) and Rob Hickman (England).
