Even in the new hall in Mengš, Slovenian women are better than Croatian women



Eva Lisec excelled with 14 points and eight rebounds

The Slovenian basketball players were looking forward to their second victory in preparation for the European Championship, which will begin in Ljubljana in a good three weeks. After two big defeats against Hungary, they defeated Croatia for the second time with 81:71.

In the new sports hall in Mengš, a good number of spectators cheered for the local basketball players. The Slovenians repaid them with a fighting performance and a second consecutive victory over the Croatians.

Eva Lisec (14 points and eight rebounds), Tina Jakovina (11), Lea Debeljak (11 points and eight rebounds), Ajša Sivka (10) and Hana Ivanuša (nine points and seven rebounds) were in the best mood.

The selector Dzordzis Dikeulakos was able to give the opportunity to all players. The Slovenian women took the lead after only four seconds of the game and actually did not let the lead slip away.

10 points up by halftimeIn the middle of the first quarter, the Croatians trailed by only two (11:13), and after a partial score of 12:0, the rockets led 25:11. They entered the second half with a lead of ten points, and a similar difference remained until the end of the first half, when members of the visiting team reduced the deficit to four with seven consecutive points.

The second half went exactly the same way. The Slovenians did not let their advantage slip away.

Three friendly matches until the EPUntil the start of the 39th European Championship, which will take place from June 15 to 25 in Slovenia and Israel, the Greek coach’s players will play three more friendly matches on the Slovenian bench of Dikeulakos; They will meet Poland on May 29 in Maribor, and Montenegro on June 8 and 9 in Stožice and Kranj.

Teja Oblak is proud of young actressesI don’t look at the result, we can tell basically from the game that the coach really tries to involve all the players, he also wants to leave the young players in situations where there is a little difference, to see how they find themselves. I think this is very good, considering that we need every actress and for self-confidence and for everything. I hope that we will play better from match to match,” said Teja Oblak.

The actress from Czech Prague was not satisfied with everything: “The match showed that we had problems with closing, basically the opponents got too many jumps, attacks, so we have to work on it even more. If we play fast, we can play very well, we make a lot of easy baskets, which shows the character of this team. I am extremely proud of the young players who came from the bench to the field and gave their all, I hope this energy will continue,” she added.
