Prometey has withdrawn from all competitions due to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine over the past week hence the cancellation of the fourth game at this stage of the continental tournament. Ukrainian teams competing in other sports have taken similar actions.

Ghana Center Amida Brimah is competing in the Champions League for the first time and is averaging 10.7 points, 6.8 rebounds and 2.8 blocks in 23 minutes.
