The Roca Team crushed the Chorale Roanne Basket (109-82), this Sunday afternoon, for the very first match of the season in the new Gaston-Médecin hall. Prince Albert II was present for the occasion.
The Roca Team couldn’t imagine a better scenario. In a brand new Gaston-Médecin room already well stocked by Monegasque supporters, Sasa Obradovic’s men signed a third consecutive victory in the league. Led by Mike James (20 points), well assisted by Yakuba Ouattara (12 points), the Roca Team mastered the match from start to finish, without ever being worried by a stifled Roanne team.
An already electric atmosphere
“It was a great atmosphere in this new room for the season premiere, one named Sasa Obradovic. I think the public appreciated what we showed, with great team play. There are a lot of positives, and the guys showed character. We are building something and all players are concerned. We have prepared well for the first match to come in the Euroleague, and that’s a good thing. »
The day before, the president of AS Monaco Basket, Aleksej Fedoricsev, wanted to greet the players during the official photo, which obviously took place in this decidedly magnificent Gaston-Médecin room, both empty and full of supporters. . Next meeting for ASM Basket, next Friday in Italy, against Virtus Segafredo Bologna, for the first day of Euroleague.
