“…and thus ends our season. I’m standing here with a smile on my face because even today we tried to play the best game we could – moreover, without adequate preparation. I expected a physical decline in the third quarter but then, amazingly, we did well to get back up again to play right up to the end. And that’s the way it should be – only three magnificently played months is unfortunately not enough to get into the Olimpo. It was still a positive season because we overturned an inertia that after the first games was very difficult to do. We have demonstrated that we have a big heart. I hope we have the opportunity to keep some players in addition to those who are under contract, even if now is not the time to talk about these things. We will begin with the enthusiasm that we showed in Varese in the FIBA Europe Cup Final Four. This will be our strength for next year.”
