VARESE-PISTOIA: THE PRESS ROOM

Coach Attilio Caja at the end of Openjobmetis Varese Basketball-OriOra Pistoia:

«We are obviously very happy about the result and the performance of the team. In the first half, we played well in defence while in attack, with their zone, we never managed to get our rhythm. But, thanks to the defence, we were good at creating a good advantage. Even on days when our attack is not excellent, our defence never leaves us for dead. In the first quarter, we missed several shots because we didn’t have a good pace. In the second half, however, things changed and, in the end, we totalled 58 points. And this is a testament to clarity and excellent inclusion. In the end, we had six players in double figures and one with nine points. We played another high-level game, dominating in many parts of the court. We were slightly penalised by fouls but, in general, we played the game we wanted. We are very happy. Now, we face next Sunday’s challenge against Bologna».
