Below, coach Ticchi’s post-game words:
“We added another piece to make us ready for important appointments. We faced a team that tackled us in an energetic and aggressive manner, perhaps the first time we faced such a physical team, and we suffered from this attitude. San Giovanni was good at playing on the advantages we gave them and at shooting, with excellent three-point percentages. Our first quarter was great, but then we dropped and in the second half we were the worst version of ourselves so far. I had asked the girls for different things from what we’ve done so far, but we still have to work on the necessary amalgam because we think a lot before we do things and so we lose intensity. Anyway, it was a useful friendly to understand how to face this kind of teams: now we go back to training to be ready for the Super Cup”.
