Fenerbahçe Öznur Kablo, who lost 88-84 to the Russian team UMMC Ekaterinburg in the FIBA ​​Women’s Euroleague semi-final match, made a statement at the press conference held after the fight with head coach Victor Lapena and basketball player Satou Sabally.

VICTOR LAPENA: WE MADE SIMPLE MISTAKES IN SPECIAL THINGS

Stating that he was pleased with the performance of his team throughout the game, Lapena said, “We did a good job. We were good at simple things for basketball, but we made mistakes in special things, especially in the last minutes. In the first half of the game, we weren’t able to do what we worked on defense. We weren’t at the level we wanted when it came to defensive rebounds. The team made good decisions in the offensive in the last minutes, but as a result, our opponent scored more points than us. We only had three days to work as a team. I’m proud of my team. We will prepare for the match on Sunday. Of course, it will be difficult to prepare in the first hours after this defeat. We have a chance to be 3rd tomorrow. We want to be competitive and win this match in Istanbul, ”he said.

SATOU SABALLY: SORRY, BUT WE FIGHTED VERY GOOD

Saying that they are sorry, Sabally said, “My first feelings are of course sorry but we fought very well. I’m proud of my team. I am a very competitive person. It didn’t give me a sense of satisfaction that we fought well but lost. “It was a good experience for women’s basketball and me,” he said.
