Everybody who likes basketball should watch AEK vs Besiktas, says Ukic

ATHENS (Basketball Champions League) – AEK guard Roko Leni Ukic has promised basketball fans that the Game of the Week on Gameday 3 of the Regular Season which pits his team against the visiting Besiktas Sompo Japan in a mouth-watering Group E clash between undefeated teams is going to do justice to its billing as a must-watch game.

"It is going to be a very tough game, but it will be very tough for them [Besiktas] too," the Croatian national team captain said in an interview with the Basketball Champions League Youtube channel. "Two of the let's say five best teams in the competition are going to face off, so everybody who likes basketball should watch this game and enjoy it."

"We have had a very good start to the season but to be honest we have not yet played against a really good opponent like we're going to face on Tuesday (Besiktas) and I am pretty excited about it."

"All the games we have won so far we were supposed to win. We did not make any surprises or beat some unbelievably strong opponents, so it was something that was expected of us. But for me what was the more important is the way we won those games. We really played with authority and good defence and this has been the key to the season so far for us."
