Further international appointments for local referee
Local international basketball referee Bernard Vassallo will continue with his positive international season after receiving a further FIBA Europe nomination for this week.
Mr Vassallo will, on February 19, referee the awaited and interesting FIBA EuroLeague Group C match to be played in the Pabellon Wurzburg between Spanish hosts Salamanca and the top Russian outfit Spartak Moscow.
This is the penultimate day of the regular season with both sides well in the tussle to gain a play-off spot.
Presently Spartak Moscow are placed second within the group, made up of seven teams, with seven wins from ten games while Salamanca are jointly third, together with Galatasaray, with six wins from the previous ten outings.
Back in December, in Moscow, Spartak had emerged 66-57 winners in the first round encounter against Salamanca.
The officiating crew for this week’s game, apart from Vassallo, will consist of Marko Vuckovic (Slovenia) and Jean Collin (France).
