Armenian men’s basketball team will go to Tirana, Albania, where the first qualifying round of the 2021 European Championship will be held on November 23.
“The members of the team has completely changed. Only Amiran Amirkhanov, the team’s captain, has remained from the World Cup qualifying round held in this summer. These changes are related to the fact that our basketball players in the United States were not allowed by their clubs to come to Armenia and join the team. What about Ryan Boatright, even though he is in Yerevan, he will not participate in upcoming games because he has been dismissed from the team because of showing disrespect towards coaches and team,” Ara Poghosyan, Vice President of the Armenian Basketball Federation, told a press conference in Olympia today.
