Coach Scariolo’s words on the eve of the first round of the EuroLeague: “Every debut game in any competition is always special, there are expectations and concerns, but we are very excited for this return to the Euroleague. Of course we know that we are rookies, although not absolutely since we were part of the competition 15 years ago, but we have worked hard to be here, also thanks to the Eurocup victory. We are convinced that when we achieve good team chemistry and manage to get our injured players on the court, we will be competitive to reach this dream that all 18 teams have and that is to get to the playoffs. Our opponent is a great team. Last year they were a Final Four team and came within a few baskets of that goal; this year they have strengthened a lot by acquiring very good players with great physicality and talent. They also play very strong defense, so they are a top team and a great candidate to do even better this year. We will have to be ready, we are aware that this is a marathon and not a 100-meter sprint, we will do our best to start on the right way.”
Jordan Mickey’s words on the eve of the game, “We are excited, for Virtus Segafredo it is a return after a long time. We have a great opportunity to start in front of our fans and we will try to start with a win. Monaco has very good guards, like Mike James and Jordan Loyd, the wings are also very good players and we will have to do a good job in slowing them down.”
