We have too often lost the ball that cost us a lot of missed points. This is a good lesson for us. We will meet with UNICS. We need to work, work and work again to have stability,” said Etudes journalists.
“UNICS scored 7 of the 11 shots in the second half of the match, 5 of 6 were McCollum. We tried to defend against tall players, but this is a strong sniper, his shots flew into the goal, the coach said. – It is unlikely that fatigue prevented us from today. The game could have ended differently. In the end after being hit by Andrey Vorontsevich, the score was 83:82, and it could turn the other way. We have excellent conditions, I don’t want to complain, but one team had seven days to prepare, and another one. This is not a complaint, just a fact. You need to accept that and try to get used to it”.
