  • Champion of Division B of the Russian Superleague 2006
  • Bronze medalist of the Russian Cup 2011
Chronicle of past games:
For the team from Krasnoyarsk, likewise «Astana», this season is the seventh in a row in the VTB League. As for the personal games with «Astana» during the 6 previous seasons, 7 matches were played, 3 of which ended in favor of «Astana». The capital club has already hosted the guests from Krasnoyarsk. The game has ended with a victory for the «Astana» with a score of 92:75.
Current situation:
The team has been headed by a Russian specialist Oleg Okulov for three consecutive seasons One of the leaders of the team Nigerian guard Suleiman Braimo is one of the most effective and spectacular players of  «Yenisey» this season, with an average of 14 points per the game. American players Zabian Dowdell, Anthony Hilliard and Octavius Ellis also make a good trio, who basically build the entire game.
The team from Krasnoyarsk takes the 13th line in the standings, with the result of 3 wins and 14 losses. The capital basketball club is on the 11th line with the asset of 6 wins and 13 losses.
Head coach of BC «Astana» Mikhail Karpenko:
- We have a very important and responsible game on the road ahead of us against the team «Yenisey», as we are currently a little behind our direct competitors for the playoffs. Despite the fact that  «Yenisey» is at the end of the tournament table does not mean that this game will be easy for us, not in any case. «Yenisey» plays well with the support of their fans. This team, which is more attack-oriented, depends a lot on how they organize a quick transition from their defense to a quick break and early attack. We need to stop them in an early attack, in addition, there are a lot of performers in «Yenisey» who can individually solve the situation on the court playing one-on-one. They have very aggressive perimeter players namely a new player Mark Lyons, and also Zabian Dowdell, Anthony Hilliard, Denis Zakharov and Vitaly Lyutych. Great problems can occur under the glass with a center Martins Meyers. First of all, we must rely on our own discipline in defense. It is a good defense that is going to help us to find the right solutions in the attack and can liberate us. We are preparing and coming to this match as if the playoffs have already begun for us.

Astana basketball club lost a game on the road to the «Yenisey» team from the city of Krasnoyarsk with a score of 90:76.

From the very beginning of the game, the hosts seized the initiative. If the first half of the match was almost on an equal footing, then the second part was completely controlled by «Yenisey». «Astana» tried to level the situation, but could not get closer than 12 points.

The most effective: Ike Udano — 17 points, 11 rebounds, Anthony Clemmons — 15 points, 3 steals, Justin Carter — 13 points.

The comment of the head coach of «Astana» Mikhail Karpenko:
- We were not like ourselves in the first place in defense. We did not move well, we did not change much. This is reflected in the attack as well. I do not know what this is connected with, but «Yenisey» also did not look good in the game in Astana earlier this season, so I guess that both us and our rivals are affected by the flight, which is the longest in the League. Astana-Moscow-Krasnoyarsk is really a difficult road and the feet after this are quite sore. Although this, of course, is not an excuse. We will work on the mistakes.

Right after Krasnoyarsk, the basketball players from the capital will go to Aktau, where on April 12 they will hold the third meeting with the «Caspian» in the framework of the 1/2 finals of the Kazakhstan Championship among the men's teams of the National League.

The next match of «Astana» within the framework of the VTB United League will also be held on the road, on April 15 the basketball players from the capital will go to Kazan, where they will meet with the local UNICS Basketball Club.
