Due to the Olympic qualification games there will be a full game day in the Euroleague on Tuesday. Our team will play guests to Arka Gdynia from 6 pm.
We hosted the Polish in November with many injured players on our roster and in a rough patch, which ended in a hurtful loss in a great battle. The German center who is averaging 11 point in the WNBA team of Atlanta, Marie Gülich used her physical advantage and speed well under the rims, her 22 points were crucial in the win. It will be a different story now, because in comparison to November's game we will have Jeca, Candice, and Tina, who played the game of her life against Lyon, and they will compete against Gdynia's centers. The Polish machine orchestrated by the playmaker of the Slovakian national team Bálintováwere able to celebrate victory against Girona and Lyon besides us. Last time out they fell just short to Girona away from home in a thriller with a buzzer-beater, after the gym being flooded due to a big storm. With their three wins they currently occupy the bottom spot in the group. Since we already have five wins, and counting the one o Tuesday there are only three games left from the group stage, if we would win in Poland it would be certain that we would finish ahead of them at the end. Of course that is not the only reason why it would be important to win this game, but also for being able to keep up with our rivals, and depending on the results of other games, even come a bit closer to the teams ahead of us like BLMA and Schio.
Our center Candice Dupree is also aware of the fact that every single point has a huge value. We asked her about her expectations before the game.
The game can be followed via live online statistics at the FIBA website, and via live video streaming on the Euroleague YouTube channel.
