There may not have been a better story in the 2022-23 EuroCup than Prometey Slobozhanske. The Ukrainian club, debuting in the competition, played all of its games abroad due to the war at home. While playing most of its "home" games in Riga, Latvia, Prometey grew from a nice story to a team that was fun to watch due to its fast-paced style and athletic players. And then it became unbeatable! Prometey won 13 consecutive games to storm into the semifinals before falling to Turk Telekom Ankara.
Coach Ronen "Neno" Ginzburg brings seven players back, including two starters, from that team as Prometey aims for another deep run through the EuroCup. The club is not short on experience or talent, but with a handful of talented newcomers, including some who are new to the EuroCup, chemistry will have to come together. Here's a look at this season's Prometey roster.
Coach Ginzburg will make sure that Prometey is an exciting team again and it starts with his group of high-scoring guards. Prometey raided the French League for two of its top four scorers from last season. Ronald March was second with 21.4 points per game for Roanne and Marcus Keene was fourth with 20.2 for Strasbourg. Keene, a point guard, has filled buckets at every stop in his career. March, a shooting guard, is also a standout defender whose 64 steals last season were the most in France.
