Skibniewski debut

Written by

- It's good and it will be even better. Surely there is someone to pass - says Robert Skibniewski before his first match at PGE Turow. Game with King Szczecin on Monday at 18.00.

Both teams used the break before the most important part of the season in a completely different way. PGE Turow players trained their strength and tactics in their own arena, focusing on incorporating Robert Skibniewski into the team. In turn, King Szczecin took part in a friendly tournament organized by Big Baller Brand in Lithuania. The team of the head coach Mindaugas Budzinauskas took first place, beating Helios Suns Domzale (80:75), BC Vytautas (128: 96) and VEF Riga (94:74).

For both teams, Monday's game will be very important. King and PGE Turow have similar balances (12-10 and 13-10) and in the full table they remain serious candidates for the play-off round. In the first fight, black-and-green triumphed over Szczecin 89:82 , and Brad Waldow (25 points and 6 rebounds) played a great competition at that time. Now the rival of the American will be Kyle Benjamin, who was recently contracted in Szczecin. Measuring 206 cm tall 26-year-olds was already in Lithuania, where he scored on average 18 points, showed that from the place can become a very important part of the team.

PGE Turow will also approach this duel, strengthened by experience and mastery of point guard Robert Skibniewski. Skiba will play his first match in the team of coach Michael Claxton against King, whose colors he defended in the previous season.

- Interestingly, I had the opportunity to play in Szczecin this season. At that time, we lost a lot with GTK in the second half, so it will definitely be a mobilization for me to get revenge - says Robert Skibniewski, who scored 5 points, gave 2 assists and had 4 rebounds in that game.

- The second natural mobilization factor is of course the first match in new colors and the willingness to present itself as best as possible. At the end of the day, however, the victory of PGE Turow will still be counted, and if I had to choose between a poor match in my performance and the team's win, and a good individual performance and lost, the choice would definitely be the first option - admits Skiba, who joined the team from the border city on Monday, February 26.

Was 7 days enough to get acquainted with the team and try to rip with it?

- There was no other way. I've had a experience in my career and I think I can do it. It's good and it will be even better. Surely there is someone to pass - says Skibniewski. - We have good shooters and undercovers and now only applications must be accurate and effective. Great philosophy is not here. I'm also not a spectacular player who will want to score 20/30 points in the match. This is not my style - he adds.
