On 17 October, the starting tours of the first stage of the Basketball Festival 3х3 among male teams of the Central Federal District were held in the Yubileinyi sport complex in Smolensk.
Three students from the male basketball club of Voronezh State University took part of the competition: Andrei Belozerov, a second year student from the Faculty of Mathematics, acted as the referee while Mikhail Pchelnikov, a second year student from the Faculty of Chemistry, and Daniil Fedorov, a fourth year student from the Faculty of Economics, played for the Novovoronezh Nuclear Power Plant team.
As a result of the first tour, the guys managed to snatch the victory from the Voronezh team “Sparta” and take the first spot on the podium. Mikhail Pchelnikov was also named the most valuable player of the first tour.
We congratulate the students and their coach Maria Yanishevskaya, senior teacher at the Department of Physical Education and Sports.
