Limor Mizrachi (Lotos VBW Clima)

Lotos VBW Clima defeated Lavezzini Basket Parma 90:78 (21:18, 22:21, 24:15, 23:24) in the first Euroelague game in Gdynia this season.

After Margo Dydek (16 points/4 rebounds) made two free throws to give Gdynia a 2-0 lead Lavezzini Basket Parma never led throughout the entire game.

In the fourth quarter Lotos VBW Clima gained a 14-point lead and the game seemed to be over for the Italian team.

But the Italians came back, led by ex Gdynia player Gordana Grubin (20 points, 5 rebounds, 5 assists). With a 10-0 run late in the fourth quarter they managed to cut the deficit to 2 points with less than 3 minutes remaining.

Gdynia answered with a few steals by Elaine Powell, Ekaterina Sytniak and Agnieszka Bibrzycka (25 points, 4 rebounds, 3 steals), which gave them easy points to close the game.

MVP of the game: Agnieszka Bibrzycka

Quotes Lotos VBW Clima - Lavezzini Parma

Krysztof Koziorowicz (head coach, Lotos VBW Clima Gdynia):
"I am happy with the victory. This game showed that there are no easy games in this group, each victory is very important.

"Everything was under control as long as we played as a team. In the fourth quarter my players were a little bit too hot. The Italian team cut their deficit to two points in the end, but we showed we can play well in the important moments of a game."

Paulina Pawlak  (player, Lotos VBW Clima Gdynia):
"I am happy with the victory. We played a very good game. My teammates were clever in the end of the game. I'm satisfied with my EuroLeague debut. I hope I will play better in the next games if the coach gives me some playing time."

Miodrag Vesković (head coach, Lavezzinni Basket Parma):
"Congratulations to my Polish friends. It is obvious that Gdynia is a good team. We represent
good italian level, which is not enough for EuroLeague games. But I hope we will get better soon.

"I'm glad with my team's attitude. We had a chance to fight for a victory in the end of the game but we weren't focused enough. "

Gordana Grubin (player, Lavezzinni Basket Parma):
"I knew that Gdynia is a very strong team, because I spent here two seasons. We have to play our best basketball if we want to have a chance in the EuroLeague. I regret we didn't make it today even though we had a chance to win."
