Alexey Shved, CSKA guard:
I am grateful to the VTB League for recognition. This award is especially pleasing, because in fact it belongs to all of CSKA, as we won all the games in March and climbed to first place in the standings. The month was interesting, we had to rebuild both the team and the schedule, we managed to have a tight segment with four games in 11 days, and also play after a long break. I think we did a good job, this month many of the guys showed an excellent game, statistics. Although the award went to me, almost everyone in our team deserves it.
