Prekas-Spanou: “We showed our true face”


The federal coach and Artemis Spanou focused on good defense while speaking at the press conference about important victory of the Women’s National Team over Latvia (73-65) on the second day of Eurobasket.

Latvia also deserves congratulations. He played a difficult game against Spain yesterday and that worked in our favour. It was a very important victory for us. We played tough defense and smart offense. We did a very good job. It’s not easy to show that much improvement in 24 hours, but we have players with talent and personality. Yesterday we played a bad game and lost, but today the team fought back. I believe that our present face was the real one. I hope so at least (laughs). Now we have to rest our bodies and minds and go and try to beat Spain on Sunday“, said the coach of the Greek team.

Artemis Spanou, who contributed decisively to the victory with 22 points, 5 rebounds and 4 assists, said in her turn: “It was a hugely important victory. We knew we had to win, it would be our only hope to qualify. We definitely played good defense, which we haven’t done well lately. We played together, followed the plan, controlled the rebounds and scorers of the opposing team and that’s how we reached the victory».
