After a first half which was dominated by Madeira (58-46), the guests from Iceland got a better attitude towards the match and won the third period 19-32, also taking the lead in the game (77-78).

The last quarter brought emotions to the match with both teams fighting hard to take the lead.
With 26 seconds to play Arnar Jonsson missed 1 of his 2 free shots and made the score 106-107.

COACH QUOTES


Quotes Madeira - Keflavik

Jorge Henriques, Head Coach, CAB Madeira:

"We had some natural problems with the communication between the players due to some injured players, that now give their comebacks. Keflavik’s team is a strong team, that was trying to get first in our group today. They’re all excellent three point shooters."

Gudjon Skulason, Head Coach, SC Keflavik:

"I’m not sure if it’s appropriate, but I think the referee took the victory away from us. We had a good second half, good shooting, good defense and all came down to one small thing, that didn’t follow our way and that’s how it goes in basketball.”
