TREVISO-VARESE: THE PRESS ROOM

Coach Attilio Caja at the end of Dè Longhi Treviso-Openjobmetis Varese Basketball:

«Congratulations to my lads who played a game of great willpower, application and character. We have a great deal of respect for Treviso, who turned out complete following a period of injuries, and we knew it was going to be a very difficult game. The lads were great in their approach and we controlled the first quarter. In the second quarter, we tried to manage their highs and we stuck to the game. Then, in the second half, our defence went up a lot and we recovered many balls, even if we made a few mistakes afterwards. Even when they went ahead, we were firmly planted and stayed in the game despite their fans and the inertia of the match that was in their favour. Congratulations to my players who all made a great contribution, both in defence and offence. We are very happy about this victory, as difficult as it was significant».
