Canarias Basketball Academy’s center Kostya Kulikov has been selected by the U20 Russian national team that has been gathered in Moscow from the 14th of May to prepare the European Championships that are going to be organized in Udine (Italy) from the 7th to the 19th of July.
Kulikov, who has been untouchable this season in the Adecco Plata with CBA, considers that Russia is “a good squad”, so he expects that it performs well in the European competition: “We want to win, as always”.
This is the fifth time that the Russian team, this time coached by Mykhail Mihailov, calls Kostya Kulikov, since the first time with the U16 and the best result was the eighth place.
Regarding his evolution at CBA, Kulikov thinks that his presence in the third league in Spain has been really productive: “I have improved a lot in Adecco Plata, because I have shared the spots with people that know how to play and that have a lot of experience in these matters”. Moreover he does not doubt about his next steps in the future: “I would love to enroll an American college after the summer”.
