The new nugget of French basketball, Zaccharie Risacher participated in the victory of JL Bourg against Prometey (95-82). Even if he had difficulty on a personal level, the young French winger (18 years old) remains no less satisfied with the evening.

“It’s a great feeling! It’s not every day that we go to the semi-final of the European Cup. We are very happy, can’t wait for the rest! It’s incredible for the club, for us the players. For the entire JL, this is an accomplishment. Afterwards, we set ourselves objectives at the start of the season, we are still hungry and we are not going to stop there. Well, I hope… We will do everything to go as far as possible!” he said after the match. Hanging on to the break, the Bressans took off in the third quarter thanks to an insolent skill and an energy which overwhelmed the Ukrainians (34-13). “Everyone contributed, everyone played well, everyone sacrificed for the team. If we play like that all the time, it will be very difficult to stop us.

Even if he did not have his best evening (3 points, 0/7 on shots and 3 turnovers), the son of Stéphane Risacher did not get frustrated more than was right and particularly remembers the collective victory of a whole group. “It wasn’t my best match. I did my best to help my teammates. I think they did a great job. I’m super happy that it happened like that, where when someone is struggling, everyone is there to support them. Today it was me. It reflects our group. I’m not surprised and very, very proud.”
