Rested and regenerated after Christmas break basketball player of PGE Turow Zgorzelec are back to fight for next league points at the finish of the first round of the basic season of PLK.

Stalowa Wola, Słupsk, Zabrze, Philadelphia, Belgrade - PGE Turow Zgorzelec players spent the Christmas time in various parts of Poland and the world, enjoying the presence of their families and resting for a moment from basketball.

- Players and staff had the opportunity to spend a few days with their families, relax, refresh their heads and regenerate their bodies. After Christmas, we immediately returned to training and preparation for the match with Czarni. I hope that this time will have a positive impact on all of us - admits Michael Claxton, the team's coach from the border city.

New forces and energy will be extremely precious for black and green. Turow will complete the first round of the regular season at an express speed. On Wednesday they will face Czarni Slupsk at their own court, and on Sunday they will compete in Warsaw with Legia.

The victories in both matches will give PGE players a high probability of participating in the final tournament of the Polish Cup. In the Final Eight, in addition to the host of Legia, will play the 7 best teams of the league on 7 January. Black and greens with a balance of 8-6 currently occupy the 5th place in the table.

The team, however, does not run out of mind so far. Now only the operation of "Czarnia Słupsk" is counted, which coach Claxton characterizes as follows:

- This is a very dangerous team, which in my opinion is better than their place in the table (15th position - editorial note). They have several aligned matches with the best teams in this league. Particularly dangerous are Americans who can earn points and create positions for themselves and for their colleagues.

The PGE Turow trainer can refer primarily to Justin Watts and Dominic Artis, who average 15.9 and 15.3 points. for the match are the best shooters. They both add up to 5 rebounds on average, and Artis can also boast 6 assists, which makes him the third best league player in this category of basketball crafts. In addition, the presence of such experienced in PLK players as Piotr Stelmach, Mantas Cesnauskis, Łukasz Seweryn and Daniel Wall make the Czarni despite a weak balance (4-11) are a team that can not be underestimated.

- We know that we will have to deserve this victory. This will be the first New Year's test for us, which will show to which part of the table we belong - adds coach Michael Claxton.
