SUPERCOPPA LBF SF | Coach Giampiero Ticchi and Francesca Pasa

Alghero –

These are the statements of coach Giampiero Ticchi at the end of the game:

“The one achieved today is an important success because it is the first official game for us and we wanted to do well. We feared this game because Ragusa is a very good team, excellently coached, so it was absolutely not easy. We were good at playing it with a lot of intensity, getting it on the right track after the second quarter, legitimizing the lead. I always try to get all the girls involved, pointing out to them that if you have to move well, with and without the ball, that’s how you have fun, and I see that they on the court right now are managing to do that. Tomorrow is an important game because it will be a replay of the scudetto final: we will have to repeat tonight’s performance at the level of intensity and application even if it will not be easy since Schio has shown that it is a battleship, imposing its pace. We will definitely give 100 percent.”

 

At the microphones of LBF, Francesca Pasa:

“Ragusa we know is a very good team and we should have played them. From the third quarter, when we definitely stretched, we understood that the final was within reach. The cohesion we have achieved is not obvious: we are a group that in part continues the path of last year, but many new girls have also arrived. We found a strong understanding on and off the court right away, and it really feels like we’ve been playing together for years.”
