Travis Garrison: 'Things with Khimik are looking on the up and up' - Dec 3, 2010

  follow us on Facebook Twitter

Hello my name is Travis Garrison (203-F-84, agency: Edge Sports, college: Maryland).I am currently playing ball in Ukraine for Khimik-OPZ Yuzny basketball team.I also played here the 2nd half of 2009/2010 season.This year we are currently in last place,but things are looking on the up and up for us.We are playing a lot better now,and we are going to win more games and move up in our league.We lost a tough one last night in OT,but proud of the effort we gave by continuing to fight to the end.We have a good team,once we fix a few things we will be just fine.We are also playing in Eurochallenge and is currently 1-1,we have a game against Ventspils which will be our 2nd time playing them.We lost to them the first time,but I think things will be much different this time around.It's a long season so we have time to turn things around as long as we stay positive and keep pushing.

I am married,but my family is back in the U.S which is difficult for my wife and I.I have a son and we are raising her younger brother who is 5,so being away from them can be tough sometimes.But we play like every 2 or 3 days and practice twice a day so that takes my mind off of missing them a little.When I get home and is by myself is when it hits me,but I am doing this for them so that keeps me going.I am close with the players on my team and the Americans which makes things a lot better too.When you have teammates that are close and get along,it makes being away from home not so bad.But hopefully I will see them soon.

Well I will let you all know how things turn out for us in this next game in Eurochallenge.God Bless.



Happy New Year!!!- Dec.29, 2011  (by Eurobasket Center)

Hello everyone the end of the year always signifies the halfway point for me the past few seasons. The season is truly a marathon and not a sprint so I always try to use the new year as a refresher or second wind to get ready for the second half of the season. I have had an unexpected break given that I suffered an injury in practice so I have been unable to practice or play the last 3 games [read more]
The good word from M. Lee- Dec.8, 2011  (by Eurobasket Center)

What's up everyone I'm back we just finished a two game road trip and getting ready for another one. I have to say playing more than one game a week has it's benefits and setbacks on the one hand it makes time seem like it's flying bye. On the other hand it can get very tiring there is always a game to prepare for with little time to do it. I have to say I like it so far I rather be busy playing games and preparing for teams than waiting every week because I love playing in games [read more]
Michael blog!- Nov.28, 2011  (by Eurobasket Center)

What's up everyone my name is Michael Lee and I currently play for BC Donetsk in the Ukraine. This is my fourth year in Europe so I have developed my own system to living in Europe. My first year was a tough one for me suffered an injury but I was able to bounce back. Currently my team is playing in Eurocup as well as the national league competition. The games come and go very fast in the Ukraine league since they play about 2-3 games a week and not the traditional one game a week [read more]
