International School of Belgrade Finishes The Basketball Season

It was a bittersweet end of our season as we lost in the finals 53-57 to the American International School of Zagreb. Their star player scored 44 points, including all of their 15 points in the fourth quarter. He will be playing for South West Oklahoma State next year on a NCAA Division II scholarship. The boys played great all weekend, winning four games including defeating the host school, the International School of  Latvia in the semifinals in three overtimes. We had a super season with 14 wins and 6 losses, matching last year’s record. We also won the Sofia, Bulgaria Invitational Tourney last month. We will be losing our leading scorer and a good rebounding forward, but everyone else will be back. We will also get some new players coming into the team. We should be strong again in 2011-2012. It was a very enjoyable season and I would like thank the players, Coach Sands, Athletic Director Damian Hart, for their efforts and cooperation. I also want to thank Nadia and my family for supporting me with the extra time I put in with the team.
