Coaching staff:
„Unfortunately in the beginning of the game we couldn’t find a good rhythm offensively and defensively. Our top scorer Isi Etute only scored 4 points in the first half . After half time we were much better, kept fighting all the way until the end and reduced the deficit to only a few points. 4 minutes before the end of the game, our best player Isi sprained her ankle, she will not be able to play the last game of the competition. Our girls showed a lot of character and a good mindset, however it was not enough to win. »
