VARESE-TRENTO: THE PRESS ROOM

Coach Attilio Caja at the end of Openjobmetis Varese Basketball-Dolomiti Energia Trentino:

«I have little to berate the team for. We weren’t aggressive enough in defence at the start and we conceded too many shots. We put on the pressure afterwards, but they got into their stride and were confident and scored some difficult baskets. In the second half, we did very well and they scored fewer triples. We had some good plays in offence, but we weren’t able to get the three-pointer continuity we had in the first half and couldn’t find any solutions from below in the second. We also made a few mistakes that may have been decisive in a hard-fought game. Still, we have to admit that Trento played a great game and it’s mostly to their credit rather than any faults that we had. We don’t have a great deal to complain about, only the awareness that we could have done a bit better».
