STG Vs SOW Dream11 Team Overview, Match Centre And Probable Playing 5: Starogard step out in the 2020-21 edition of the Energa Basket Liga for the first time this season.
After finishing in last spot in the 2019-20 instalment of the Energa Basket Liga, the extended break is exactly what Starogard needed. The last side to step onto the court in the new edition of the showpiece, Starogard have gotten ample taken to take a long hard look at themselves and understand what went so wrong for them the last time around.
In what was an utterly shambolic and calamitous season for the club the last time around, the side managed to accrue a sorry 4 wins in the league. It was a howler of a sortie in the league by the club, one where they were left clueless and bereft of answers on how to curb their never ending losing spree.
Now having been given a chance to not only address their predicaments but familiarise themselves with everyone else in the competition as well, Starogard will be ardently wishing that this season is massively better. When the side steps out for its first outing today, its bound to come hot out of the blocks in a bid to lay down an early marker of intent.
And in Ostrow, they have a side which they can down as well if they dole out a clinical brand of basketball on the day. Winless in their opening couple of fixtures, last season’s 10th place Ostrow have failed to impress in the attacking docket.
The 74-64 defeat the side encountered the last time around was vindictive of the side’s plight. This one promises to be a thriller, one we see finally curbing Starogard’s losing spree owing to the side’s ability to pull off points at crucial junctures.

STG Vs SOW Dream11 Picks
He might have been dismal the last time around but James Florence’s league opening exploits see him be inducted in our Dream 11 side for the outing. The point guard controlled play for his side in game 1 as he lined up triples, dimes and boards to make him a must have pick for us today.
A new look Starogard side will rely on James Washington’s acumen today. With the team having reshuffled its roster to bring in some fresh legs after being in horrendous form last season, James emerged as one of the first names to be reposed faith in by the side.
Taurean Green from Ostrow will be the first name to be inducted in this ambit of our setup. He was one of the rare names for the club who put on a brave face in game 2, scoring 13 points and registering 5 assists as he tried his best to run play for the side in the attacking slot.
The opposition meanwhile will see us opt for the pick of Steven Haney. He caught the club’s eye owing to his penchant for shooting from the deep, one which see him become an ideal pick for us for the day.
With this looking to be a low scoring tie, Starogard will massively rely on Jacek Jarecki’s ability to protect his rim. The player can not only occult shots but can protect his rims to pull off boards, a skill set which makes him an instrumental name for the side today.
His side’s most dependable name, Chris Smith was always going to be inculcated in our setup for this one. He utilised his ability to backstep and layup the offhanded shots, a trait which allowed him to shoot 8 points the last time around.
Victor Ruud pulled off a sensational display, one which ensured his side remained in the scrimmage till the fourth quarter. His imperious quality as a player saw him make his presence felt in both the facets of the game as he came up with 12 points and 8 rebounds.
Josip Sobin was the only Ostrow player who delivered a double-double for his side the last time around. His 13 points and 11 rebounds saw him both shoot field points with a high success rate as well as win the battle of the boards.
Smith’s incredible consistency and ability to cajole a string of baskets sees him be our star player while Sobin is the pro player.
