The frogs carry the first win
The basketball players from Brno’s Žabin won the European Cup in London over a total of 82:74 Lviv there, and this is their first win in the group. The best scorer of the Brno team was the experienced Slovak player Anna Jurčenková with 17 points.
Both opponents have two rounds for one win and one win. At the beginning, the Brno team lost 58:75 to the Belgian Castors Braine at home. The fourth participant in the group is the German team Rutronik Keltern, which hosts Žabiny in a week.
The Brno team entered the match in London in a concentrated way. With good shooting and fighting spirit, they created a tip of 13 points, which in the end turned out to be decisive. “We spent a lot of time preparing for the match and analyzing the game of our opponents, which helped us especially in the introduction,” coach Žabin Viktor Pruša told ČTK.
After the first quarter, the English champion strengthened his defense and improved his offensive. At the end of the half, he made it one point difference, but ŽBL did not allow him to do the third season last year. Coach Viktor Pruša’s charges also watched the end and caught up with the fight to win.
“Unlike the first match, we played the whole second half cleverly, we had some great moments there. I am pleased with the rise of the American Holmes form, which has great potential in it,” added Pruša.
