Recap Cyprus Win 70-85
Our first win went well for us. We started the game really well, building an early lead.
However, Cyprus did not give up and made a comeback, and we trailed only by 2 points at some point.
In the second half, we switched the gears and we lead by 20 points. But towards the end we relaxed and Cyprus scored some easy points and they reduced the deficit to 15 points.
We must be focused and play all 40 minutes of the game. At this stage, every point matters, and we cannot have these lapses.
On my side it was a poor showing, where I finished the game with just 2 points (1/6) and 5 rebounds in 16 minutes. Time to pick it up against Slovakia.
Slovakia comes off a 7 point win against Cyprus. This game will decide the early leader of the group, and increase it’s chances of qualifying further.
Slovakia has some good inside players, one of them being Vladimir Brodziansky. Skilled player that can play inside but also shoot the ball very well from the outside. It will be a good matchup and looking forward to this challenge.
