GAME REPORT


Bourges Blast Their Way Past Brno

12. Marianna Tolo (Tango Bourges)
Marianna Tolo had a big return to mark the start of her second EuroLeague Women campaign

Tango Bourges Basket blasted their way into the new EuroLeague Women season with a thunderous 88-38 home success against BK Imos Brno.

The home side had far too much in their locker for Brno who were always on the back foot and reeling after a whirlwind opening by Bourges.

Valerie Garnier and her players raced out of the blocks and Brno were left stalling on the starting line as Bourges amassed a 17-4 lead after ten minutes.

They never looked back and were able to do some serious damage on the boards, with new signing Helena Ciak leading the way and hauling down 15 rebounds as she garnered a double-double by scoring 12 points.

Her partner in the paint Marianna Tolo was also on fine form and added 19 points, while Paolone Salagnac could barely miss as she made six-of-seven shots en-route to 12 points.

A total of 14 rebounds from Jenna Smith was the highlight for the losing team who didn't have anyone reach double-figures.

COACH QUOTES


Quotes: Tango Bourges Basket vs. BK Imos Brno

Mariana Tolo, Bourges
"We started the game on a very good basis on defence and in rebounding. Our team was taller than Brno and with Helena Ciak we could control the paint. It's good to start the EuroLeague Women campaign with a game like this but it's just the beginning."

 

Valérie Garnier Bourges Head Coach
"The team respect the plan, especially on defence and in rebound control. Brno was not at its best, it helped us to have an easy game. My players were good on both sides with very strong defence and good tactical choices and adaptation in attack. We just have to lose less balls and not give too much value to this game against the incomplete team of Brno."

 

Milan Veverka, Brno Assistant Coach
"Not a lot of things to say after a game like that. We are sorry to present a team with only seven players because of injuries and it was just impossible against a complete team like Bourges."
