Call Me Montenegro

In Montenegro they speak Montenegrin and in Montenegrin, "Montenegro" means Black Mountain. Say that sentence 5x fast. We are off to the capital city of Podgorica to play against their Eurochallenge representative BC Buducnost Podgorica. After a 2-0 start in the Eurochallenge your boys of Gottingen are atop our Group and are finally starting to play good basketball. As good as the Russian and French leagues are, these Adriatic teams are known for being some of the toughest in the world. I know I'm not the only one up for the challenge.

I don't know much about Montenegro but according to Eurobasket and Wikipedia...this is the outside of the gym we're playing at

and this is the inside

Three Things You Didn't Know About Montenegro
 1) In F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby, Jay Gatsby gets the medal of Honor from the Montenegrin King
2) A good chunk of 007's Casino Royale was shot in Montenegro
3) Sasha Pavlovic was a former player on this Montenegrin team
