EuroCup, Round 2 | Scariolo: “Good defense for 25 straight minutes, we have tools to improve”

Bologna, 27 ottobre –


After the game against Ulm, Virtus Segafredo Bologna coach Sergio Scariolo spoke in a press conference: “A step forward in our growth, it was maybe the first game where we played 25 minutes with a very good defense. We definitely have tools to improve, working as a team, it takes time because that’s what allows you to compete with everyone. I know what the time is. This win has special merit for the defensive aspect. On offense we went slower than we should have gone but anyway, with low percentages, we scored a lot with a lot of assists, this is important. The EuroCup is a competition with physical and athletic teams and we have to start with our young players who create for their teammates. The fans played an important role in the first half, this is everyone’s team and everyone has their role. Pajola was the ring that picked up the growth of the crowd’s heat and put it on the court. Jaiteh played a good game on both sides of the court, with some smudges in rebounding but in general after three weeks of stop we have to be happy. Teo was important with his creativity which we need. Nico is not judgable, it was his first game.”
