ROME (Euroleague) – Center Erazem Lorbek and coach Jasmin Repesa could be opponents this summer at the FIBA Olympic Qualifying Tournament in Athens but for now, they are driving forces in a Lottomatica Roma team that is battling for Euroleague Top 16 survival.
There are lighter moments for both in the Eternal City.
Slovenia national team star Lorbek, and Croatia boss Repesa, like to visit the old part of Rome whenever they can to soak up the culture of the magnificent city and the fans are always there to greet them.
Basketball World News caught up with both on Saturday near the Piazza del Popolu. More videos on www.fiba.com & www.youtube.com/fibaworld'
