The words of Meo Sacchetti
“We started well, then Trapani came out and we suffered a lot” explains coach Meo Sacchetti. “Our opponents started defending with great aggression, pressing us and putting all their physicality on us. In the last two minutes we took her home in a daring way ”. When asked what was missing Sacchetti replies: “We have to understand that to play these championships you need nastiness. If we can play aggressive too, then we can have our say. If, on the other hand, we play on tiptoe, as we did for more than 30 minutes this evening, then we don’t go far. We need to improve in one-on-one and in penetration, we need more athletic strength ”and concludes“ we won, but I’m not happy, we gave away too many baskets ”.
