Iberostar Tenerife, a former BCL champion, has the chance to do it again and Giorgos Bogris welcomes the chance

By Eurohoops team/

Iberostar Tenerife center Giorgos Bogris has won the BCL trophy with Tenerife, however, this time around he can do it again in Greece, his home country, and that makes him excited: “It will be an extra motivation for me to win the trophy at home. It’s a strange feeling cause I never had the chance to win a competition at home playing as an opponent. I am really excited to be home, play in front of my family and try to win it”.

Speaking about the fact that his team was part of the end of the season tournament in Liga Endesa, Bogris added: “It’s different to play after six months without competitive basketball and two months, or one and a half months without. We had already also some very strong games in the Spanish SuperCup and it’s really important that we have six players from last year continuing with the team”.

And the fact that Tenerife comes to Athens after a crazy comeback win in the Spanish League can really help: “Teams need moments like this, they connect better. In general, it was a bad game for my team. We are lucky that in the last quarter by playing small ball and using our experience we got the win and we are happy to have the best quarter in the history of ACB. It was crazy and it’s a step forward in order to be a unit”.

Enjoy the full show.
