VENEZIA-VARESE: THE PRESS ROOM

Coach Attilio Caja at the end of Umana Reyer Venezia-Pallacanestro Openjobmetis Varese:

«I am very happy about this fantastic result. Winning on the home court of the Italian champions, a team that won a week ago in Milan is enough as testimony to what we did today. We played a great defensive game and, as always, played from the heart. In defence, we managed to stop their transition plays and managed to do very well even on the rebound. We perfectly executed the game plan and the 63 points scored by Reyer testify to this. In attack, the whole team made some very good attempts and everyone lent a helping hand. I am really happy and proud of the team. I want to dedicate this key victory to all the players, to our staff – who continue to do an extraordinary job – to the company and to the fans who are always there. Today we reap the rewards of much hard work. The road is still very long, but we start the second round in the best possible way».
