We got back on track with a historic win in Salamanca after the national team break. Coming up on Sunday a 6 pm is the match-up against PEAC-Pécs.
Our guests have began the season with a new head coach, who doesn't need to be introduced to our fans. Róbert Meszlényi is the contributor to a lot of success in basketball for Sopron. He has worked with men's and women's teams as well, In recent years he has been working in boys' youth programs, but answering the call from Pécs he got back into the system of women's basketball, where he is expected to bring brighter days to Baranya. In order to achieve that goal PEAC and PINKK have joined forces, creating a better roster.
They have acquired two experienced Hungarian players from PINKK as part of the co-operation deal. Besides Nikolett Gémes-Sarok and Nóra Ruják two members of the Hungarian national team have been caught in their net. Zsófia Simon is a secure spot on the perimeter, while Judit Barnai delivers great performances under the baskets. It was also a crucial step that they managed to keep athletic player Sara Imovbioh, who had an amazing season last year and caused us many upsets as well. Our former player Katarina Tetemondova has also brought experience to the roster. For the point guard position they found a Belgian player. The all-around player Julie Vanloo born in 1993 has completely lived up to the expectations towards her. The fourth international spot is filled by 18-year-old Serbian guard Jelena Radonjic, who is expected to play a great role in building the future at the club.
Our opponents currently at the 4th spot on the table have achieved a great win last time against ZTE (81-68), but haven't played a single game since November 8, and their preparation was also set back by injuries. We can be sure that compared to the league game we played in Sopron against them last season (89-37) Róbert Meszlényi's team will show much bigger resistance, but with the positive outcome of the game in Salamanca and enough focus getting the win can't be a problem.
Before the game we asked Kamilla Varga to share her thoughts with us in advance.
