The result was decided in the first half (44:26) which the Czech team achieved through tough defence, a quick combination game and accurate shooting from all positions.
The Polish team was ahead in the third minute 7:2 as the Czech players were a little nervous. The score remained tight however as Zuzana Zirkova took care of business for the home side, shooting the first seven points for Brno.
Despite the tight beginning, the hosts were able to turn the game around and stretch their lead to 18 points by half-time.
Wisla were not able to come back and make a run in the second half and had many turnovers through mistakes underneath the basket. The Czech team played a mixed game right from the beginning, using their players Zirkova, Poto, and McWilliams-Franklin in perfectly finished fast breaks.
Jan Bobrovský (Brno):
"In the beginning of the game we were nervous. We showed great composure and it was great defence and fast-breaks that lead us to victory this evening. I am not satisfied only with the last quarter, when we played badly."
Arkadiusz Koniecky (Wisla Krakov):
"It was not a lucky day for us. The competitor was great, Zirkova and both new players McWilliams-Franklin and Poto were excellent. In the first half we lost the rebounds 6:18 and that is too much. We were not given any chance. We lost duels underneath the basket, turned over in set ups and did not succeed even in long distance shooting with the aggressive Brno team defence."
