BCUASM Chisinau - Dondiusheni. Game 3. June 4. 89-74.

What do you do when you are loosing in the final 0-2, when the final is played till 3 wins? How do you play when DE-facto the team you are playing against is stronger then your
team? The only answer you get all your players to play as this is their last game ever. This is what Dondisheni did. First, all their players recovered and this was the most complete team Dondisheni could've get. And second there is nothing else to loose: you either win this game and stay in the final or you loose and this is over. To be or not to be - this is the question.

It was the most difficult season game for BCUASM Chisinau. Even thought they were leading all game long, the handicap was an average not more then 5-6 points, which would always cause Alexandr Sestopal to ask for time-out. Very balanced game in which all leaders scored and played crucial role for their teams. In the middle of third quarter of the game Dondiusheni got on fire with 3-pointers which allowed them to equalize (59-59) the score for the second time in the game, after 0-0 in the very beginning. But probably it took a lot of strength and fouls, which caused Dondisheni head coach to make some substitutions on the field, including letting Andrus rest. All of this lead to 10 points difference by the end of 3rd quarter. 70-60.

Andrus and Co tried to repeat their success in the last quarter and use 3-pointers to take the advantage, but snipers wouldn't put the ball into the basket as it was requested by the coach, which did not minimize the difference in the score. And as the old saying says: if you do not score your opponent will score himself. The time was running and the score difference was growing and growing. 3 minutes before the end it was clear BCUASM Chisinau will become double champion this year: Cup and Championship title winners. Time ended at 89-74.

Right after the game inauguration ceremony started.

Best forward of the season was voted Vladimir Kolesnikov (202-F/C-80) from BC FireBall, Bender.
