First games of the NBL Semifinals just ended. Home teams registered both wins. Levski had to work very hard to take 103-95 OT victory against Tundja Yambol, while Lukoil Academik destroyed Cherno More 89-57. The format is best-of-five and second games are scheduled for Friday. Same teams will be the hosts. Lucoil Academik is the defending champion in NBL. They were also regular season champs with 25-3 record.

Levski Sofia - Tundja Yambol 103-95 OT (1-0)
The hosts trailed by 4 points at the halftime before their 31-25 charge in the third quarter, which allowed them to tie the game at the end of regular time. They were better in overtime eventually winning that period 15-7. Levski Sofia forced 23 Tundja Yambol turnovers and outrebounded them 39-28 including 24 on the defensive glass. They looked well-organized offensively handing out 23 assists. Tundja Yambol was plagued by 30 personal fouls down the stretch.

Five Levski Sofia and four Tundja Yambol players scored in double figures. Tundja Yambol's coach Ivan Cholakov rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help.

Papazov returns on the bench - 13 hours ago
Konstantin Papazov will return to coaching after couple of years rest. Papazov will be head coach for BC Levski 2014 Sofia, and will continue his duties as Chairman of the team.

Financial colapse led the team to bankrupcy and Papazov formed a new club - BC Levski 2014 Sofia - which he is trying to develop from then on. Now he will take the lead as head coach for the new season.   [read more]
