GAME REPORT

22.06.2013
Greece Take Commanding Lead

15. Artemis Spanou (Greece)
Artemis Spanou led the charge for Greece with 18 points and eight rebounds

Similar to the semi-finals, Poland have left themselves a small mountain to climb when they return home for the second leg of the EuroBasket Women 2015 First Qualification Round Final, losing to Greece 61-46 on Saturday evening.

Giving up 15 points to Bulgaria on their first leg of their semi-final clash, Poland used the partisan support to rectify the result back on home soil. Knowing they have done it before will at least offer them some slight confidence when they host the return leg on Tuesday.

Weronika Idczak got the scoring started for Poland by knocking down a three as the sides traded points early.

But a Pelagia Papamichail lay-up with her side behind 8-9 spurred the Greeks into life as they rattled off 16 of the next 18 points to take a commanding 13-point lead (23-10) at the end of the opening frame.

Artemis Spanou was making her presence felt early with nine points in the opening quarter, before going on to finish with 18 and eight rebounds.

Papamichail finished with 12.

The offensive tempo of the home team dropped in the second frame as Poland made a slight dent in the deficit, bringing it back to nine, 31-22, at the half.

Throughout the second half the guests were able to avoid the score ballooning further but there was no coming back from the early damage as Greece picked up the final six points to put themselves in the box seat ahead of the return leg.

Aleksandra Pawlak and Idczak ended with 11 points each for Poland.

COACH QUOTES

22.06.2013
Quotes Greece vs. Poland

Greece head coach George Dikaioulakos
"The first four quarters, of a total of eight we have to play against Poland, are over. We were focused in defense and this is what we keep from this first encounter, because offensively it just wasn't our day. It didn't cost us though. Poland got some unexpected help from the three point line, by some players that haven't played that much so far. We are heading to the second game against Poland with the same philosophy we had last week against Israel. We want to win the second game too."

Greece forward Artemis Spanou
"We were really focused from the first second to the last. We played very well in defense and we imposed our rhythm. This 15 point margin will help us heading to the second game in Poland. It was important for us, that when our opponents tried to make their come back, we didn't let them. We fought back and we got this +15 in the end. Nothing is over... Our goal now is to be serious and focused in the next game in order to achieve our goal."

Poland head coach Jacek Winnincki
"I believe that during a long period, we were in the game, claiming the victory. Although we were down by 16 in the third quarter, we fought back and we had the chance to get into the second game in Poland with a margin not that big. But we couldn't pull through, because we lost our concentration. Greece has the advantage with this +15. Nothing is over though! It won't be easy to turn things around, but we still have a chance."

Poland forward Agnieszka Szott-Hejmej
"Defense was the key that led Greece to win. It was impossible for us to find our rhythm during the game, exactly because of their defense. Now, we have to turn things around in Poland. We had to do it in the semifinal and we did. So, now, we know what we have to do."

COACH QUOTES

22.06.2013
Quotes Greece vs. Poland

Greece head coach George Dikaioulakos
"The first four quarters, of a total of eight we have to play against Poland, are over. We were focused in defense and this is what we keep from this first encounter, because offensively it just wasn't our day. It didn't cost us though. Poland got some unexpected help from the three point line, by some players that haven't played that much so far. We are heading to the second game against Poland with the same philosophy we had last week against Israel. We want to win the second game too."

Greece forward Artemis Spanou
"We were really focused from the first second to the last. We played very well in defense and we imposed our rhythm. This 15 point margin will help us heading to the second game in Poland. It was important for us, that when our opponents tried to make their come back, we didn't let them. We fought back and we got this +15 in the end. Nothing is over... Our goal now is to be serious and focused in the next game in order to achieve our goal."

Poland head coach Jacek Winnincki
"I believe that during a long period, we were in the game, claiming the victory. Although we were down by 16 in the third quarter, we fought back and we had the chance to get into the second game in Poland with a margin not that big. But we couldn't pull through, because we lost our concentration. Greece has the advantage with this +15. Nothing is over though! It won't be easy to turn things around, but we still have a chance."

Poland forward Agnieszka Szott-Hejmej
"Defense was the key that led Greece to win. It was impossible for us to find our rhythm during the game, exactly because of their defense. Now, we have to turn things around in Poland. We had to do it in the semifinal and we did. So, now, we know what we have to do."
