Murcia, Jan 29 (EFE).- Joan Peñarroya, coach of Cazoo Baskonia, gave a lot of credit to the 80-87 victory achieved by the team from Vitoria on the UCAM Murcia court and said that “we must give a lot of value to what was done after play and beat Anadolu Efes in extra time less than 48 hours ago”, and remarked that, despite the logical wear and tear, his team “always competes”.
The Barcelona coach of the Basque team emphasized the difficulty of winning at the Palacio de los Deportes in Murcia. «Winning here is very complicated and nobody does it without suffering and without throwing a pick and a shovel. It is a very difficult track and it is super difficult to dominate UCAM CB. For this reason, when it seemed that we had the best controlled game, the phenomenon that is Thad McFadden and some mistake on our part with lost balls made them enter the game.
“You have to give value to this game after playing and winning in extra time less than 48 hours ago against Anadolu Efes,” he added, while making it clear that they must “control the minutes playing 11 games in a month knowing that the team is fine and always compete.”
«Maik Kotsar had a great game, but Steven Enoch also had some great minutes despite not being on the court at the end. I am very happy in general terms with the response of the players on a field as complicated as that of UCAM”, said the one from Terrassa, who is watching point guard Markus Howard, who sprained his right ankle with just three minutes of the game played. and he no longer returned to the track: «Let’s see how Markus is. We will do tests and we have to be cautious.
