Tough clash ahead

We are hosting ZVVZ USK Prague on Wednesday at 6 p.m. We want to make our fans forget about the loss in Szekszárd, but just playing well might not be enough for us to be able to win the game against powerful Prague.

Our rival is right behind us on the Euroleague table with three wins and two defeats in five games. Their two losses came against Galatasaray and Kursk, although American star Dewanna Bonner wasn't there with the team in Turkey yet, and since then she helps her team with 12 points and 7 rebounds per game. Last time they destroyed French side Lille 88-51, which is more than an impressive difference. Amanda Zahui who moved to Prague in the summer shall not be highlighted only for her performance in that game (27 points, 11 rebounds!), but also because she immediately took up a lead role on the team. We can already say that the Swedish power forward is the most likely candidate for the MVP Award. She averages more than 20 points and 9 rebounds per game. Next to the two stars more highly skilled players can be found on the roster of Natalia Hejkova's team. The playmaker role is in good hands with Marta Xargay, even though the most important question in the summer was if they could find a suitable replacement for other Spanish superstar Laia Palau. It sure looks like they could! Besides the results the 15 points and 7.2 assists average speak for themselves. Of course they need Leticia Romero for that, too, who is a nice addition to the players mentioned above. Speaking further about international players we must say a couple of words about Croatian Marija Rezan, who is also a solid presence under the rims. Looking at the Czech part of the roster we will mention Katerina Elhotova first. The player who gave up her opportunity to play in the WNBA due to her pregnancy is a key player as well, just like fellow national team player Alena Hanusova. Next to them Karolina Elhotova and Veronika Vorackova got minutes on court.

After the initial worries they put together a strong team in Prague and they are coming to Sopron for the win, but we will have a word or two to say about that, too. Let's hope that the loss in Szekszárd was just a mishap! If we can perform on the level we used to before that game, than another surprise win could also be in the cards. As Aleksandra Crvendakic told us after the Monday evening practice, Sopron is our home where we want to do our best!

The game tips off at 6 p.m. Tickets can be purchased at the venue for 1300 HUF. Entry to the game is free of charge below the age of 14 and above 70.
