VTB United League identified 10 heroes of the 2019-2020 season, which ended ahead of schedule. In this ten, the head coach of BC Enisey Drazen Anzulovich and the player of Astana Malcolm Hill.
Enisey with its sensational victory over CSKA at the start of the season seemed to set the mood for the entire championship, in which there were many unexpected results, struggles, intrigues and emotions, the League noted on its website. – The same was the performance of the Krasnoyarsk players themselves, who, though they could not stand the pace taken in the beginning, but certainly were not boring.
The Siberians were not limited to success in the game with the Moscow Grand: they have victories over UNICS and Lokomotiv-Kuban, their struggle in the game against Khimki. Drazen Anzulovich, who called the move to Krasnoyarsk the most extreme thing in life, guessed with the legionnaire, put the team in a balanced game. Eight consecutive defeats in January in all tournaments left Enisey without European Cups and deprived them of their place in the Top 8 in the League. The February victory over rivals from Kalev showed that the Siberians were ready to return to the fight for the playoffs, but then the season stopped. ”
“Hill was the first among all League players by the minutes spent (34) and used them properly. The American was second in terms of performance (20.2 points), fourth in terms of effectiveness (19.4 points) and entered the Top 10 best 3-points shooters of the season (2.3 hits per game). The defender pleased with stability: he took part in all 18 matches of Astana, only once having scored less than 10 and 15 points. In February, the 24-year-old League debutant went to the All-Star Game and was competing for the shootout contest title, ”said the League site about Malcolm Hill.
