PESARO-VARESE: THE PRESS ROOM

Coach Attilio Caja at the end of VL Pesaro-Openjobmetis Varese Basketball:

«There is certainly a great deal of regret for the result and for how we played in the first half. At the start of the match, we were very passive, we didn’t play at the right pace and with the aggressiveness that could have served us well. This passivity is also reflected in our attack which, at that stage, had a very low average. With those stats, it is unthinkable that we could still be competitive. In the second half, we started to play at a better pace and everything changed. After the interval, we managed to rebuild our game and, at the end, we regret the fact that we almost tasted victory. Pesaro won with a lucky basket, with three attack rebounds, stray balls and two or three confused fouls. It’s clear that if we had played better in the first half, maybe the result would have changed but it is not always true that those who play badly lose and those who plays better win. This evening, Pesaro played well for 25 minutes, compared to our 15. In the end, the events leave us regretting the result».
