    probably wrong

  • Dusko Savanovic made great strides in last season with Valencia, but failed to reach the Final Four after Real Madrid beat them in Game 5 of their Playoffs series. The move to Andalou Efes will probably bring a new hope for Savanovic’ campaign to finally make it to the Final Four, as most fans will expect any one of the two Turkish teams to at least reach the Final Four. but it is too early to tell for now, but Savanovic will definitely be an asset to this team.
